Apple Has No Tolerance For Webcam Covers

"When we looked into how to solve the problem of webcam security, we opted for a simple but powerful approach in the form of hardware kill switches. With hardware kill switches, you can completely remove power from the webcam and microphone just by flipping a switch."

@purism and you think there is no place for a simple paper sticker??

@SeanGeil @purism What I have on my thinkpad is a simple plastic slider that can hide the camera. Cleaner than a sticker and simpler than a power switch.

@purism I love these kill switches. They can also help to protect from being recorded by my own microphone, wireless, and bluetooth. Would bei nice to see them around more often and in more devices.
