Webcam Spying – Protection – Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Webcam Spying has been the topic of many News Stories for some time now.

I hear all the news stories out lately about those that have had their online cameras (webcams) hacked, pretty frightening stuff!

What resulted in my being so concerned about Webcam Spying? Yes the news stories weren’t enough… BUT suddenly I HAD to turn our gaming console webcam away from the main part of the living room. As a matter of fact, I have the consoles webcam looking at the back of a DVD, right now. lol  Why? Well about a year ago the webcam indicator light kept turning on and I noticed it while the console wasn’t being used. Nothing like fearing that just because you bought the extra accessory for your gaming console you could be being spied upon. Especially if you are sitting rather un-lady like in a dress watching the old boob tube! Problem solved easily, the only problem is that now I don’t want to bring up any of the games that I could use on the console because I need to take care of setting it up “just right” so the finicky camera can see me again.

Previous to the above experiences, I had heard the news stories about spying through webcams. And yet, until that happened several times on the gaming consoles camera, I never worried about our privacy here. Hey it always happens to other people, not to you right? WRONG! So what to do? band-aid over the webcam on the laptops? Nope don’t want the gooey adhesive to ruin the lens, nor to need to try and place a new one over the lens in just the right place.

Okay so thinking about gooey mess, how about a good ol’ sticky note? So I proceeded to place a clumsy old sticky note over the webcam… but it no matter how I folded it it obstructed my screen and it flapped with the rooms fan running. I finally gave up and just closed the lid every time, even when I was in the middle of working on my laptop… oh yes sometimes forgetting to save a draft of all the work I had done and a few times I even lost information (my hard drive was going bad). So back on with the sticky note, until now.

I received an offer about a month ago to review a Webcam Safety Cover, called the C-Slide Webcam Cover, you know I JUMPED at the chance to have one of my own! The C-Slide comes in Black, Silver and White, I chose black.

webcam safety C Slide blackThis is what their review offer had to say about the product:

C-SLIDE Webcam Cover 1.0 is a patented design that works with all laptops, computers, monitors, Smart TV’s, PS4, Xbox Kinect, and some External Web cameras.
Product Features:

  • Super Thin: 1mm thick so laptops are able to shut with ease
    Length: 1.5”
    Height: .5”
    Applications: double sided tape
    Durable : made from high-grade plastic
    Won’t Scratch: designed to open and close without harming the camera lensAlso available at the following stores: C-SLIDE, eBay, Amazon, Open Sky, and Etsy

cardboard that the c slide came onI proceeded to look at the envelope that I received from the company and wondered if the Cover was intact, sure enough, though the pictures of this looked rather small, I wasn’t sure what I was expecting. lol Sure enough it was intact in that envelope and simple to apply, just peel off the backing to the two little strips of tape (like double stick tape) and apply! Now, I do have fingernails so it may not be as easy for some to peel those tiny little slivers of tape backing off, but it was simple enough for me to do.

Now the true tests of this product come into play

Does my laptop close and do what it is supposed to do when I close the cover? Yes.

Does it slide open and closed easily so that you can use your webcam when you want and close it to get rid of spying eyes? Yes.

How does it hold up opening and closing frequently? It does well, those tiny little thin pieces of adhesive tape are holding up!

What do I think? I think I need to pick up some more, for our cell phones as well as hubby’s laptop, that’s what I think! This little thing is great for my piece of mind… especially knowing that the hacks out there don’t even turn on your little LED indicator, as some would think that they do.

You can purchase this at the places listed above or at their store! And they even sell a multi pack to protect your family from webcam spying too! Or catch all your devices? How many of us only have one device with a camera on it that hooks up to the internet after all? And with you purchase, if you don’t simply love the C-Slide? It’s 100% Satisfaction Guarantee: If you are unhappy with your purchase they will send you another unit or for a full REFUND!

Now is your chance to win one for yourself or a loved one.
