Even the greats of the IT industry tape over their webcam! The thought that someone else might take control of the webcam and microphone is just too creepy. Ashampoo® WebCam Guard fixes this issue permanently! The program uses a special algorithm for direct hardware access and disables it with a single click! And it only takes another click to re-enable it whenever needed.
Telework or not: Zoom, Teams and Slack have become part and parcel of many peoples' lives. At the same time, the internet is littered with videos of users who forgot to end their session or turn off their devices! Ashampoo® WebCam Guard provides instant visual feedback about the status of your camera and microphone–with the option to disable them at a single click, and the safe knowledge that you won't become an involuntary object of entertainment for your co-workers.
Malware, like viruses and spyware, can activate your webcam and secretly record you. Cybercriminals use these recordings to extort money or shame their victims. WebCam Guard prevents these hostile takeovers and provides 100% transparency: The compact well-arranged user interface includes a green or red button to signal which device can currently be used.
Ashampoo® WebCam Guard is super easy to use and instantly comprehensible. A single click disables/enables webcams and microphones–that's it! Additional settings, like auto-launch behavior or notifications, are available through the program options. Sounds simple? That's because it is! WebCam Guard is the simple and safe solution for more safety and privacy!
