We now know that people can spy on us quite easily via webcams. I have known before that it was possible but now it is much easier. So what can you do to protect yourself?
Most obviously where things are password protected use a strong password that cannot be guessed. Also it is not good practice to have a webcam connected and available unless you specifically need to use it.
In general you need good passwords; some sites that can help you include:
And remember that any password you create should never be posted online nor sent via email. Only use to log in to secure systems online or your own computer systems. Write it down on paper and keep somewhere safe. Do not reveal your password to anyone, especially not to those who are asking for it.
At the main client where I work in the City, they require us to change our passwords on a regular basis, which prevents problems if someone guesses another user’s password.
Just remember to have secure passwords, never use default passwords, and remember your password and keep it safe and secret.
