To tape or not to tape?

Is the sticky residue hard to get rid off?
>>
>>52453059

I just break it first thing from any laptop. Just screwdriver through the fucker.

>Not getting turned on by the idea of someone hacking into your webcam and watching you masturbate

>>52453333
Only 20%? I'm pretty sure there's a lot more people who do that where I work
>>
>wanting a russian neckbeard watch you masturbate
>>
>>52453059

I just unplugged the camera from motherboard, not so much for privacy reasons but because all linux distros I tried would turn the camera on during boot and not turn it off. Unplugging it was the easiest way to fix the problem.
>>
>>52453976
why can't you config udev to not try to even detect it during boot?
how is unplugging stuff from the mobo is any easier?
>>
>>52454066

Because I don't know how and wasn't going to be sticking with one distro to figure it out, most of the time I simply boot on live environment never really install a distro.

Don't use the webcam anyway, its shit.

But if it comes on the LED will tell me it's on. Then I can just cover it with my hand.

>>52453059
no tape, disabled in BIOS
>inb4 it's still enabled hurr durr
no, it doesn't show up anywhere. the device is gone. and if someone had the ability to manipulate your device in a way that would hide the device from you, you're fucked either way.

I don't know dude, when ever I disabled sata ports on bios the drive still showed and was totally accessible in Windows

Something like 10 years ago aged 11 I saw a really obscure YouTube vid of a Mexican using some Netdevil-like program and tapping into webcams. He had >6000 computers in his list and switched through a few. Spooked me so bad that to this day I can't masturbate in the same room as an IoT device.
>>
>mfw i saw someone do that in a lecture
>a neckbeard
its up to you anon :^)

I saw two hot girls who both had it on their macbooks once at econ class.
Fell in love.

Masturbating is the least of your concerns then anon. You should have a paranoia level like Ed Snowden.

This, plenty of customers here had their webcams taped like that, paranoid fucktards, I bet they get the fake goverment virus that put your image live on cam asking for money.

Yeah, you'd think its disabled, but I shit you not my Toshiba craptop has a disable webcam option in its bios, but it still shows up in the device manager and is completely accessible to any software. I don't know if its a bug or they did this on purpose.
>>
>>52455897
that's why you check in the device manager, lspci or whatever. if it isn't there, there's nothing to worry about.
>>
>>52456017
Did you even read my comment? It does show up in there and any application, media players and shit can use it. And it isn't a black screen either, it a motherfucking working webcam, even tho its disable bin the bios.

I'm starting to think they did this on purpose.

>yes silly goy, its totally disabled, see? Nothing to worry about :^)
>t. Toshiba support
>>
>not unplugging it at the ribbon cable level

Get on my level.
>>
Why would this even be necessary? Just don't install any malware.
>>
>>52456083
wat. as a i stated in my first post, >>52454218 IF IT DOESN'T SHOW UP in device manager etc., then it's fine.
obviously if it does show up, for whatever reason, then it's not really disabled. i never said you should just disable it and blindly trust in your BIOS. which is what i repeated in >>52456017
>>
>>52453059
>Is the sticky residue hard to get rid off?

Why not just put a bandaid over it so when you need the camera it isnt sticky with glue?
>>
>>52456156
OK, I understand, I was just making an example that you should indeed always check in device manager, as apparently it does happen that disabling shit at bios level doesn't even work.

>>52456166
Rubbing alcohol works best.
>>
>>52453059
disable it in bios together with microphone and bluetooth

I like the smell of my cats back. I think thats where a lot of the good smelly cat pheromones/body oder maybe I think are at. Might also have to do with that cat parasite thats in their poop/saliva that tricks your brain into liking the smell being attraced to it.

This desu, and i also use it sometimes.

>>52454199
Interesting fact:
Some webcams can be used w/o activating the light.
>>
Painters masking tape if you don't want sticky residue.
>>
Do you stupid fucks realize that 99% of webcams have an inline LED that will illuminate if the camera receives power????

Do you think i talk to myself? "Oh boy I'd love some good ol' CP right about now!"
Or do you perhaps think that my laptop uses some kind of ultrasonic sonar technology to scan and model its surroundings?

You guys are actually worried about this? Nobody is going to hack your laptop and watch you jerk it to hentai.
