As a user, I find this creepy as fk. I would love to know how to disable this sort of "feature" on my phone.

If you have an Apple device you don't need to disable it: webcam video streams (aka getUserMedia()) isn't supported on Safari. On other browsers you always need to give permission before the camera is switched on.

Oh, great to know, thanks!
