Steagle 1.0 Laptop Webcam Cover

By now it’s fairly common knowledge that it’s not only possible but relatively easy for a person or an agency to gain access to your laptop webcam without your knowledge through the use of various exploits. Some people simply cover their front-facing camera with a sticker, but that gets to be a pain if/when you ever actually want to use the thing.

The cover is $12 at Amazon and comes in these colors:
