What is a webcam cover?
A webcam cover is a gadget that blocks a device’s camera. Since 2013, webcam hacking has been a regular item in the news cycle. Laptops, smartphones, and tablets alike have all fallen victim to webcam snoops. Covering the webcam is a hands-on solution to a digital privacy problem.
Why use our webcam slide and not a sticker?
The truth of the matter is both our Spyslide and a sticker can stop undesirable webcam hacking. However, the key difference lies in functionality. When you attach a webcam sticker to your camera you run into one of two scenarios either a) with a permanent sticker, your webcam is covered forever and subsequently out of use for the lifetime of your device or b) with a temporary sticker, you must constantly remove and reapply new stickers every time you want to use your webcam, costing you time and money.
With our Spyslide, you get the functionality you deserve at an affordable price. You buy it once, and can use it for the lifetime of your device. With a webcam slide, all it takes is a simple sliding motion to open your camera for use, and another to slide to shut it when you’re done! Made of stainless steel, the Spyslide is durable yet still thin enough so that you can close your laptop with ease. Unlike cheap plastic alternatives on the market which are often super thick or very fragile, the Spyslide is slim and strong. Guarantee that your privacy is secured in a simple yet elegant manner.
Available since our 2017 launch on Indiegogo!
*Note: Apple has reported cases of possible damage to Macbook screens (late 2019 editions onwards) due to generic webcam covers. In our experience with the Spyslide, this has not occurred. However, please ensure to apply your Spyslide correctly and be cautious.
