    A lot of people noticed a photo of Mark Zuckerberg covering his laptop camera with tape several months back, and it got me thinking... How credible is it that an external threat to take control of my FaceTime camera on a MacBook? Or come to think of it, any other apple device??

    I don’t mind it.
    They will see at most the ceiling, the inside of my pockets or my face. None of them are credible threats to me.

    Oh, remotely enabling the microphone will only make them hear background noise, the tv or music that I’m playing.

    I am not worried.

    With time, skill and the right equipment, I’m sure a device’s camera can be hacked, especially if connected to the internet.

    I'm completely sure that a hacker can easily hack into your camera. I know it's silly, but remember the second episode of Mr. Robot

    What you have to think about is why would they hack your or my camera? Someone famous like Zuckerberg, sure. Me? I doubt it.

    I forgot to say.
    My friends and (if there even are any) my enemies are too dumb to be able to hack me.

    LOL, I'm really not that important (only in my mind...LOL) for someone to care what I do...I don't think so anyway...LOL. But more on a serious note, anything can be HACKED.
