Working from home is now more prevalent than ever. Digital privacy has always been a concern, and now it is a concern more than ever. Virtually every computer is equipped with a camera. Have you ever Googled “webcam privacy”? If not, I’d recommend that you do it, it is an eye-opener.
You will find a lot of high-profile tech and government officials have been spotted with their webcams covered. I wonder why? If they need to protect their privacy, we should as well.
There are a few ways that you can go about protecting yourself against webcam spies.
The “Home Made” solution is using a pots-it. It works, but in our experience, the post-it is not a long term solution, and there are more functional and esthetic ways to achieve digital safety.
The “Webcam Cover” is the preferred solution to digital privacy. It is a dedicated solution that is meant to keep your webcam covered until the time you need it.
There are so many webcam covers out there. How do you choose the one that is right for your customers? From plastic to metal to microfiber covers, what cover is best for your customer?
The plastic and metal covers are great for desktops and mobile devices, depending on their size. It is crucial to keep in mind, as universal as they may seem, plastic and metal covers do have a bit of depth to them that allows for the slide that opens the cover. That depth is not a problem for desktop computers, but we do not recommend those covers for laptops. Keep in mind that these covers are made out of hard materials that have the potential to damage laptop screens.
When you are looking for a truly universal solution, we highly recommend a flexible microfiber webcam cover solution that is ideal for protecting privacy on all desktop & laptop computers and mobile devices. The soft form factor of these covers will guarantee that screens stay safe and privacy is protected.
The best part of it all is the front-and-center branding that all webcam covers provide. In addition to the branding and privacy benefits, webcam covers are great for mailers due to their small footprint.
