Please, Apple, give me a way to disconnect my microphone and webcam on an OS level so apps can't randomly access it.

Doesn’t that already exist under Preferences > Security & Privacy?

Afk rn so i might be misremembering the name of the setting.

TIL! Thanks! This is exactly what I wanted.

Wrt webcam I use a sliding webcam cover to block it on a hardware level.
