The #security guy handed everyone a mechanical shutter to glue on the laptop camera opening. I feel like I'm working in a no-nonsense company.

no-nonsense laptops come with one built-in

I still fail to see any substantial security risk associated with a laptop camera. It is just a geek-approved version of security theater.

If I get access to a computer for corporate espionage, camera would be the least interesting part. I would look at the files and enable the microphone to listen all the meetings. My conspiracy theory is that this whole camera covering thing is a diversion from the security risk of always listening phones, such as siri, bixby, etc. And when I see a person trying to cover up their camera, I automatically assume that they are trying to avoid their photos taken because they are watching porn on that pc, or use that computer naked.

@cmm: back in my day, we used to wash our hands before touching computers to prevent them infected by viruses. Now people use posix systems and forgot the old ways... So sad.

Полезнейший аксессуар, кстати, учитывая уебищные клиенты для конфколлов, которые по умолчанию включают камеру. Особые лучи поноса передаю zoom'овцам.

I think it may be externally enforced because ours is formally a company producing medical devices, which implies regulations. Re microphones: I was reminded that laptops like mine should have physical mic and camera kill switches, but my specific model apparently does not.

@9000: hint. if there is no manual kill switch, install equalizer and redirect mic input to this dead end.

^ This is a good idea if you trust the hardware! Same applies to a kill switch, though :-/

@1master: в zoom это можно выключить в настройках. И сразу становится удобно
