Camera Guard™ 2 for Mac®
Webcam- and Microphone protection
Camera Guard™ makes sure that no hacker, spy or malware can observe you or listen in on you. With just one single click, not only the camera, but also the microphone will be completely protected.
Prevent spying and end unattractive taping
Not only millions of users, but also founder of Facebook™ Mark Zuckerberg and FBI-chief James Comey tape over the webcam and microphone of their MacBook.
With good reason: Everything and everybody is spied on! We know this since June 2013 when the first NSA documents were revealed by whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Since then increasingly threatening details are being constantly uncovered.
But not only have hackers found solutions to misuse the webcam and microphone without a warning signal to the user, but also the recently discovered Mac-Malware Backdoor.MAC.Eleanor is highly dangerous, because it specifically targets control of the integrated webcam.

Just imagine: your webcam is recording you, and the green light does not light up.
Typically, a small green light next to the camera turns on when the web-camera becomes active. This mechanism has already been circumvented several times, most prominently demonstrated through the painful experience of Miss Teen USA, Cassidy Wolf, who was secretly recorded with nude pictures being taken.
According to the Washington Post, both the FBI and NSA use various methods to secretly activate the camera of users without their knowledge.
Nothing to see. Nothing to hear.
With only one click the protection is activated and Camera Guard™ blocks and observes all programs and processes that try to access the webcam of the macOS device. Every attempted security breach will be reported with a signal.
To further prevent manipulations, the individual settings of the software can be secured with a pin that is especially secured by a hacker safe protection.
While all accesses and warnings are conveniently protocolled in the log file, the intelligent Deep Detective™ detects even unknown attacks.
A smart invention against (un)known threats.
With the Deep Detective™ we have created an intelligent and versatile detective that observes all accesses to the macOS device – similar to an alarm system, a firewall or an Intrusion Detection System – only smarter.
Deep Detective™ permanently controls which process or program currently attempt to access the camera. Additionally it reports known – and thanks to modern heuristic methods – also unknown attack attempts.
Smart Ransomware Protection
Using the latest technology, the smart Deep Detective is constantly monitoring and protecting critical system areas and your personal data with an additional layer of prevention against Mac encrypting ransomware attacks like KeRanger and more.
Safe. Minimal resources.
Camera Guard™ is an all-round safe, fast and slim solution, additionally we emphasized specifically for MacBook users, a sustainable usage of system resources: The software uses minimal disk space, and has a minimal footprint on central memory and processor, in order to minimize battery consumption of the device at all times.
An ideal combination.
Camera Guard™ can, especially with activated Deep Detective™, be used ideally in combination with other existing security solutions like anti-virus scanners or firewalls.
Anti-virus scanners and personal firewalls have already been stretched to their limits for years: With Camera Guard™ you surpass those limits, because the software observes and secures specific hardware components that couldn’t be protected by modern security solutions – until now!
