Online Privacy

Did you know that cybercriminals can use your webcam or microphone to secretly spy on you? Scary, right? Sophos Home stops these attacks in their tracks by alerting you whenever an application or process attempts to access your webcam or microphone. Unknown or unwanted applications can be blocked, and those you trust can be allowed to run.
