WHAT IS A WEBCAM COVER?
Webcam covers help protect you by keeping your webcam covered when not in use. It physically covers the camera with a sliding latch which can be opened to expose the camera.
WHY WOULD I NEED A WEBCAM COVER?
There are numerous incidents across the US of hackers spying on their victims, taking pictures and blackmailing them. Schools have been sued for spying on their students. When connecting to a meeting conference, your webcam can accidentally or purposely turn on, exposing you to your coworkers or clients at an awkward moment.
ARE THESE WEBCAM COVERS REALLY MADE IN SWITZERLAND?
Yes they are. We looked at manufacturing in China and the quality was not up to our standard. These are simply the most amazing Swiss designed high quality webcam covers we have seen.
WILL THIS WEBCAM COVER FIT ON MY DEVICE?
Our webcam cover fits on most devices, from iPhones iPads MacBooks and Macs to PCs, Laptops, Androids and other smart phones and tablets. We recommend placing this webcam cover on the front facing camera as this is typically what could be hacked or exposed. This webcam cover will not work on the back camera of the iPhone 6 as the camera is raised and there is no surface to attach to.
WILL THIS COVER FIT WITH MY PHONE CASE?
While these webcam covers are incredible slim and small, we can not guarantee that they will fit with all phone cases. However we have not seen a case that covers the front camera enough to cause a problem. We have seen cases that would cover the back camera and not allow the webcam cover to fit.
Webcam Cover Details: • Thin and professional • Made from durable polyurethane • Locks into place • Measures 12.5mm long, 7mm wide and 1.3mm thick • Borehole measures 4.6mm wide • Sturdy and strong adhesive
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this for my Surface 3 tablet. My fear of popping up on a Skype meeting in pajamas and no makeup are over. I received this in a standard envelop and laughed when I opened it. It is tiny! But honestly, I love that it's tiny! That's the entire point for me - something to cover the pesky camera and not be bulky. It's marketed for phones but works great on my tablet. I turned on the camera while applying it and it leaves no shadow at all, you can't even tell it's there when it's open if you're on the other end of the camera/meeting. Then you just slide the little circle to the right and you disappear from the screen. The screen goes completely black, not even a shadow outline is there.
My only concern was that the adhesive wouldn't hold on the smooth screen of the Surface 3. After sliding it around to be perfectly over the camera hole, I pushed on it to help it adhere. And then I left it. It's important to leave it, maybe push on it again here and there. But if you...
Absolutely love it. I use it on my Macbook, iPhone, & gave the 3rd to my girlfriend to use on her iPhone. After watching Mr. Robot we became more conscious of our online security. Originally, we were going to tape our device, but I decided to look some stuff up & decided on these. All of my concerns of the product not fitting instantly vanished as everything was easy to put on. Most of the time I forget that's it even on my device until I try to use the camera & occasionally when I do notice that it's there, I like to play with it sliding it back & forth. What I did do though before I put the the cover on my device was apply super glue under the cover to help keep it's hold, but my girlfriend opted not to & it's lasted without any problems (ordered 18 June 2016; review 8 September 2016)
These webcam covers work great. The adhesive is very strong (had them on iPhone, iPad, laptop for weeks and all holding well) but can be removed without any permanent residue. Easy to install as the adhesive gives you a bit of wiggle room while centering the cover before applying pressure to seat with a semi-permanent hold. Very thin and while they have a little nub to grip, making it easier to slide open or closed, they do not easily open by getting caught in pocket, etc. I was not able to put one on my main camera on phone because of my case design, but primary concern was covering the front side screen cam and this product works great for that. If you're looking for quality, I would recommend.
