App Description

Camera Lock protects your privacy by detecting and preventing unauthorized webcam access. Hackers, spies and companies share a great interest in your privacy, and some have found ways to turn on your camera using malware, viruses, camfecting and click-jacking. With Camera Lock you can deny all apps access to your camera. If a camera was already in use, its video will freeze immediately. No more need to tape over your camera!

“Believe it or not, a hacker could be spying on you through your MacBook Webcam right now. Yes, right now.”
