Web Cam Privacy?

Maybe the masses that cover their computer’s web cam for privacy aren’t crazy.

It turns out that FBI director James Comey covers his laptop camera with tape, just like any NSA-fearing citizen should - an admission that has generated hilarity on social media.

The FBI chief confessed to keeping his camera covered at a Kenyon College, Ohio speech on encryption and privacy on Wednesday.

Comey revealed that he had learned of the novel camera blocking trick from the news. “I saw somebody smarter than I am had a piece of tape over their camera,” he said, NPR reports.

There is nothing new in the realization that the Constitution sometimes insulates the criminality of a few in order to protect the privacy of us all.
