While laptops provide a lot of terrific features and benefits for users, there are some perils associated with owning one. A major one that people seem to forget is the webcam at the top of the screen, which people cannot always keep covered for either work or other reasons. However, it is key to be mindful of what can happen, as TikTok user @chrisjr404 shows us. This should be an alarming realization for anyone who owns a laptop and keeps the screen open at all times. It is surprising the manufacturers do not have more aggressive measures to protect users from this type of privacy invasion.  Commenters showed their appreciation to this video. “That is insane how easy that is to do,” remarked Michael Herrera. Glnarso6 suggested, " Not me anxious it’s a trap to give access to my phone cam." “My webcam has a plastic lid, have it cover when I don’t need it,” reported Steven Drew Armstrong.
