How Webcams are Hacked and How to Protect Yourself

Police have been focusing a lot of their time towards bringing down online hackers, which have really been upping their game lately. A 27-year old woman recently contacted the police after having someone send her photos of herself naked. The photos were taken from her computer’s webcam, but she never took them. It’s shocking, creepy and seems like it’s straight out of a movie.

How do hackers gain access to your webcam?

Hackers use different methods to gain access to your computer, but one of the most common ways is by installing Blackshades on your device. Blackshades is a type of malware that allows them to control your computer remotely. This means they can open and close applications, they can view your files and they can even turn on your webcam and snap photos of you.

Another method they use is by logging into your webcam’s admin panel. More than 50% of people use the standard webcam password, which is the default password when you purchase the webcam. Since this default password remains the same for all webcams manufactured by the same company, it’s incredibly easy for hackers to enter your admin panel and watch your live webcam feed.

How to protect yourself from webcam hacking

While it seems like these webcam hackers are code geniuses, they are basically just copying and pasting hack scripts and sending malware that they did not create. You can easily get rid of 99% of hackers by changing a few things on your computer. The first thing to change is your webcam’s password. Never keep the default password; it’s like leaving your house key under your front doormat. Also, when picking your password, use something difficult and write it down somewhere. You won’t have to type it in often, so it doesn’t need to be something quick and short.

The next step is crucial; install anti-malware and anti-virus software on your computer. So many people take it for granted and don’t bother wasting time or money with such tools. However, it’s the leading cause for webcam hacks. With a great anti-malware tool, your computer will be able to detect Blackshades and remove it. There are some good quality anti-virus and anti-malware programs available online for free.

webcam security

It’s important to run daily computer scans with your anti-virus. If you don’t want to do it on a daily basis, do it at least once per week. Also, make sure to keep your anti-malware and anti-virus software updated at all times.

Finally, you can use a cheap and quick fix, which consists of placing a piece of tape over your webcam. If it’s an external webcam, only plug it into your computer when you actually need to use it.

Peeping Toms can become incredibly dangerous. By listening in on your private life, they can find out information that could put your life at risk. Don’t cut any corners when it comes to your privacy; go all out and keep yourself safe from hackers at all times.

Top 6 Tips for a Better Webcam Chat Session  

Webcam chat has become the best way to meet new people and even stay in touch with family or friends. However, many people, if not most, tend to use webcams the wrong way. Although there is no one way of experiencing webcam chat sessions, there are definite guidelines to follow in order to make the experience more enjoyable for both parties involved. We have gathered up a list of the top 6 tips to making your webcam chat sessions better.

Turn the Light Up High

Many, way too many people sit in front of their webcam in a dark room. Sure, keeping the lights low is romantic and easier on the eyes, but it’s terrible for webcam chats. When you chat with the lights down low, it becomes incredibly difficult for the other person to see you. Keeping the lights on a high setting it the ideal way to kick off a great cam session.

Angles are Important

The angle of your webcam is so important that it may actually be the most important factor to consider. If the webcam is too high, they will see more of the top of your head than anything else. On the other hand, if it’s placed too low, you’ll look very awkward as they stare at your chin all night. You want to angle the webcam so it’s eye level and perfectly straight. Mess around with different angles until you find the right one.

Avoid Built-In Webcams

Built-in webcams are incredibly popular these days, especially with laptops. However, no matter how details and rich the picture quality is, you should avoid them at all costs. These built-in webcams don’t give you the freedom to test out different angles and most of the time, with laptops, the webcam is way too low. Remember how important angles are, well that’s exactly why you want to spend $50 on a high quality standalone webcam.

Clean Your Room

Messy rooms in the background are a trend, but a terrible one. You want to give your viewers something nice, calming and non-distracting to look at. You don’t want the other person to constantly be thinking of your mess rather than the conversation that you’re having. Keeping your background clean is very important and makes it much more enjoyable to sleep at night knowing that you’re room is clean, just saying.

Use Emotions

Don’t become a monotone person like 95% of people who speak on webcams. It’s weird how people instantly develop a boring tone of voice when the cam turns on. Using emotions and speaking like you would in any normal conversation will make the session much more enjoyable for both of you.

Quit Walking Off

So many people walk off screen when webcam chatting; it’s rude. Sure, if you’re chatting for several hours at a time you’ll eventually have to use the washroom, but more often than not, webcam chats last under an hour. When the webcam turns on, you become an actor on screen; so quit walking off and be professional. Nobody likes watching a blank screen while waiting for the other person to return.

This will truly up the ante and make the experience closer to real sex than ever imaginable.

However, for female users, things get a little more complex. In order to make a hands-free dildo, that thrusts on its own, it would have to be a huge sex toy. It’s possible, but it falls into a whole other category and wouldn’t be easy to hide in your nightstand.

Many VirtualRealPorn Films on the Way

Hospital Webcams Allow Parents to Check on Newborn  

No parent wishes to have their baby born prematurely, but it’s an unfortunate event that does occur quite often. Premature babies often have to end up spending weeks, even months in the hospital before being able to finally go home. This makes it very difficult on the parents who have to continue on with their regular lives. Not being able to see their new baby on a daily basis can be heartbreaking and even cause intense depressions.

Fortunately, webcams solve a very hard to live with problem.

New Hospital Webcams

Hospitals in certain areas have begun experimenting with a new technology; webcams. They have installed webcams in neonatal centers, which are basically in charge of caring for newborn babies. Premature babies normally remain in incubators for several weeks, which makes it difficult for parents to see them on a daily basis.

Since hospitals have begun installing webcams near the incubators, parents can now check up on their baby without having to physically go to the hospital every day. This is a huge perk for parents with premature babies because some parents live over an hour away from the hospital. Going back and forth on a daily basis isn’t always an option, but with webcams, parents don’t have to go a single day without seeing their child.

Easier to Cope

Dealing with a baby in an incubator is often quite difficult. Not being able to see their child every day causes many mothers to go deep into postpartum depression. However, with these new webcam additions, it allows mothers to be reassured whenever they need to see that their child is doing good.

Although not many hospitals are offering this type of luxury just yet, it’s certainly going to become a regular thing for most hospitals in the future. So far, the hospitals that have begun using webcams have been a huge success. Parents love it and there has been nothing but positive feedback so far.

Hearing Your Baby

For mothers, there’s nothing worst than waking up in the middle of the night without being able to see or hear your baby. Fortunately, the intensive care units that have begun using webcams allow for 24/7 streaming. This allows mothers to check up on their baby regardless of the time. Not only can they see their child, but they can also hear them. This allows mothers to hear their child’s little lungs every time he or she begins to cry. It’s an amazing way to help parents get through such a difficult time.
