Am I being watched? Is my camera on but did I somehow miss the green LED? Thanks to click-jacking, trojan horses and malware, hackers have found ways to turn on your camera without your consent. Camera Lock enables you to lock your camera and refuse access by any app. If a camera was already in use, its video will freeze immediately and the green LED will start flashing. No more need to tape over your camera!

"Believe it or not, a hacker could be spying on you through your MacBook Webcam right now. Yes, right now."

Via an optional plugin free of charge, Camera Lock detects camera usage. So, if you unlock your camera for normal use but forgot to lock it again, don't worry; Camera Lock will alert you if somebody turns on your camera!
