Prevent webcam privacy invasion

In the age of Internet of Things, it’s become easier for cybercriminals to disrupt your life. Hackers can use the devices in your daily life against you – while you remain none the wiser. The humble webcam – something available on most laptops and mobile devices – is a preferred target of hackers. It allows them to spy on your life, and the information collected can be used as blackmail or, at times, to access other extremely personal and sensitive data.

Sophos Home’s layered approach to protection secures webcams from infiltration. If an outside source wants to gain access to your webcam, that access is denied. It also leverages artificial intelligence with deep learning to block known and unknown malware tasked with taking control of your webcam. Even if malicious malware files are downloaded onto your computer that want to infect your webcam, they are detected and blocked before they run.

With Sophos Home, your webcam’s privacy is not endangered by online threats. Spend more time surfing the web and less time worrying about webcam security with Sophos Home.
