    Hi guys as the Mozart made a Topic on a WeBcam

    and zemana Anti Logger

    Prevent Webcam Logging

    I wonder if there are any method to Protect against Microphone Logging
    as the microphone Don't Have an LED light to show that it's working or not :|


    and also the duck Tape Don't Work On the microphone LOL

    also i wonder Why Hardware Companies Specifically Laptop Maker
    Won't Make switch on the Webcam and the Microphone For paranoid People

    so what Free program will protect against Microphone Logging

    SpyShelter protects against microphone logging from what I remember.

    If you don't use your microphone much you could just uninstall the drivers or turn the levels right down to 0 and keep an eye on it every now and then.

    The best way i know of is IF THE MICROPHONE HAS AN ON/OFF SWITCH ON THE MIKE ITSELF,always keep it OFF when not in use :)

    Hello,

    I went to the Control Panel, clicked the Sound icon, and went to the Recording tab and disabled all microphone and line in devices.

    Regards,

    Nathan

    I would just pull the cord out of my computer when I wasn't using it... make sure that sucker isn't still working. Same with a webcam.

    And if you're worried about locking it down while in use, then a program like Zemana or Spyshelter seem like good ideas, or Comodo D+, and of course your Flash settings in Control Panel.

    i'm now trying to get spyshlter premium

    as for pulling the basterds out of the computer it's not possible for Laptop

    I hate Laptop manfacturer for this Reason why they didn't put a small switch
    called paranoid mode
