One assumes that this activates the green camera light? It's not perfect but I can't imagine not noticing that it had come on.

Not that it helps if you're, ahem, in the middle of something when the nefarious 3rd party opens the line.

AFAIK the light is controlled by the camera's firmware. So unless someone is able to hack that, the light will always turn on with the camera. That said, even Zuckerberg has sticky tape over his camera.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
