FAQ

 

What's Covver?

Covver is simple way to protect your privacy, as well as protecting the lens on your computer's built-in webcam or your smartphone's camera.

It fits snugly over the area around the lens, attaching with a durable, water-resistant adhesive. It slides open easily whenever you need to use your camera, prevents any image from being captured when it's closed.

Is it really necessary to use a webcam cover?

Unfortunately, yes.

Former FBI director James Comey compared using a webcam cover to locking your house at night.

The built-in cameras on our laptops and smartphones are vulnerable to hackers. It's possible that someone is accessing your webcam when you don't want to — even if the light is off.

Yup, even Mark Zuckerberg covers his webcam. (Although we think he could do better than a piece of tape!)
