Not only millions of users but also the founder of Facebook™ Mark Zuckerberg and FBI-chief James Comey tape over the webcam of their devices.
With good reason: Everything and everybody is spied on! We know this since June 2013 when whistle-blower Edward Snowden revealed the first NSA documents. Since then increasingly threatening details are being always uncovered.
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.

With just one click, the protection is active, and Camera Guard™ blocks and observes all apps and processes that try to access the camera of your smartphone. Every attempted security breach will be reported.
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 logged, the intelligent Deep Detective™ detects even previously unknown attacks.
Deep Detective™ permanently controls which process or app currently attempts to access the camera. Additionally, it reports known – and thanks to modern heuristic methods – also unknown attack attempts.
With millions of attack signatures, the optional Deep Detective™ Live spyware scanner offers comprehensive protection against a multitude of hacking attacks.
For example, Deep Detective™ Live detects on Android devices a variety of fraudulent elements such as HiddenAds, FakeApps, Adware, LeadBolt, Sms-Thief, Rooting, Sms-Fraud, Fake Installer, Exploits, BankBots, Anubis, AgentSmith, FinSpy, Ransomware, Banker, etc.
Especially with activated Deep Detective™, Camera Guard™ can be used ideally in combination with other existing security solutions like anti-virus scanners or personal firewalls.
Camera Guard™ is an all-round safe, fast, and slim app for Android™ smartphones. The app uses minimal disk space and has a minimal footprint on central memory and processor, to minimize the battery consumption of the device at all times.
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.
