Webcam Safe™ protects a webcam user’s privacy by providing top-of-the-line security and constantly monitoring a user’s webcam. The software prevents unauthorized access to the webcam, acting like a 24/7 security guard. It lets webcam users easily block and unblock their own webcams, creating a safer online environment.
“Many people have no idea that a webcam can be remotely activated without someone’s permission,” says Scott Kochman, Founder of Webcam Safe™. “Yet anyone with basic computer skills can easily spy on someone else.”
The recent webcam spying incident in which a Rutgers University student took his own life, proved just how devastating it can be when an individual has their privacy unknowingly invaded. And unfortunately, computer spying and cyber bullying is on the rise. The most common victims are typically female teenagers, college students, and young adults.
Current anti-virus software programs do not monitor or detect webcam spying. Webcam Safe™ solves this problem and is designed to work in conjunction with many of these types of programs without effecting a computer’s speed or performance. If an unknown person or program tries to capture pictures or stream video on someone else’s webcam, Webcam Safe™ will block access to it and protect their privacy.
This new, easily downloadable software is available now for a free, 30 day trial offer at webcamsafe.com.
