121 webcam - Adult personal webcams
Camera spying is so widespread that it's happening in schools.Just this year Lower Merion Township in suburban Philadelphia, settled a lawsuit brought by two students, paying them 0,000 in compensation. The school provided 2,300 Mac Books to their students and installed spy software on them that snapped pictures of the students.
Marcus Thomas, a former assistant director of the FBI's Operational Technology Division in Quantico, Virginia, tells the Washington Post that the FBI could spy on anyone's webcam without turning on the camera's indicator light.
While not all webcams have indicator lights, and many laptops do not have them at all, the indicator light is a nice security feature that tells you when the camera is active.
This sort of special intelligence cooperation is a regular occurrence under the "Five Eyes" program. Obviously, when used correctly and legally, this is an important counter-terrorism tool. government still has, new legislation notwithstanding, is how to assure the proper handling of extremely personal information that is completely unrelated to any counter terrorism or criminal activity.
But when it is used as a political tool to harass or blackmail people, the consequences are different and corrosive. But the NSA and GCHQ aren't the only entities spying on webcams.
Webcams and phone cams are also an important source for corporate spying.
