Put an end to spying and unsightly taping.

Not only millions of users but also the founder of Facebook™, Mark Zuckerberg, and former FBI chief James Comey are taping over the webcam of their devices.

For a good reason: everything and everyone is being spied on. We have known this since June 2013, when the first NSA documents by whistleblower Edward Snowden were published.

But not only hackers found ways to misuse the webcam without a warning signal to the user: Also, the latest malware is highly dangerous because it specifically targets control of the integrated device camera.

Prevent spying and end unattractive taping

Then, with just one click, protection is enabled, and Camera Guard™ blocks and monitors processes that try to access your device's camera. Any security breach is reported.

You can easily choose which apps on your device can access your camera or webcam.

Imagine: Your webcam is recording you, and the green light isn't on

According to the Washington Post, the FBI and the NSA use various methods
to activate users' cameras without their knowledge secretly.

Deep Detective™

With Deep Detective™, we have created an intelligent and versatile detective that monitors all accesses of the macOS device - similar to an alarm system or firewall - only much smarter.

In Camera Guard™, Deep Detective™ permanently controls which process wants to access the camera. It also reports known - as well as thanks to modern heuristic methods - unknown attack attempts.

Please enter your PIN!

This new feature of protecting apps with a 4-digit pin keeps every Mac secure and tracks failed access attempts with date and time.

On macOS devices, this allows children to be granted timed access to certain games, use Safari or Calculator, etc. But at the same time, access to Apple Mail, Photos, or System Preferences is denied.
