I do not cover mine.  Good luck to whoever is watching ... they see me at my worst first thing in the morning.  PJs and messy hair is all they get ... LOL

I do, I want be safe always rather than sorry! but not sure how far it is true that people can watch you through your webcam, cant they do the same with your smart phone ??

I do not cover my webcam when not in use but, if someone was using it and I didn't know it, all they'd see is the ceiling so, have at it!

I actually do. I read a article online that the FBI recommends that you do cover your webcam so people who don't have authority to look at me...DON'T!

I dont cover but it makes sense that someone could be watching you.  I think its something to think about.

I have a web cam and it isn't covered but after reading all of this I am definitely going to cover it.

I always cover up my webcam. You never know who is watching. The smart TV's can listen to us among the other devices out now.

My webcam has not been working recently so no need to cover it.

My computer has a webcam but you have to activate it. We had an old computer where the webcam would always be popping up for some reason but still it was the same thing, you have to activate it.

I rarely use my laptop with the webcam on it and would be awfully boring to spy on just sitting there for hours. Enjoy my triple-chin, hackers

no, I've never covered my laptop cam - If it lights up, it's on; otherwise it's off.  And I have to give permission for access.
