This is impossible technically,if its not working it cant be on so no one can hack and spy on you.Its good you realize this is irrational,I strongly suggest you see a doc before it gets worse.Lily
If it'll help, try covering it with a towel or something or take it out of the room or face it away from where you are. But definitely see a doctor to get some other suggestions and make sure there isn't something deeper underlying the paranoia.
Thank you :) I think its good that I know its irrational, but I don't think its good that I have these thoughts in the first place. I will talk to my doctors when I see them next.
I have a temporary solution - stick something over the webcam so that it does not bother you in the meantime
Can totally relate to this post...been there and done it myself...This laptop doesn't have a built in camera...YAY!!! :) but yeah follow the good advice of the others!
