    I don't know about a 'peep hole' but last night my husband and were 'talking' about an item of clothing he was looking for. This morning when I turned on the computer up pops the article of clothing we were discussing! I had done no online search.

    If hackers can do it, governments can do it.

    Hackers who gain access can control your TV and change certain settings. Using built-in cameras and microphones, a smart and capable hacker can spy on your conversations. In November 2019, the FBI issued a warning about the risks of smart TVs to your privacy and offered several recommendations.

    I haven't. I do believe its possible the 'peep hole' can be used for nefarious purposes... but really, who wants to watch me be boring on my laptop? If someone does want to watch me be boring, I guess I kinda feel sorry for them. I'm really boring!

    A little square of blue masking tape...

    But not on my iPhone which I use just as often if not more. Apple recently upgraded your ability to tell if an app is either listening or viewing, via a little light at the top of your phone. Orange for microphone, green for camera.
