Did you notice that? If not then zoom in the Image and check in his Mac book webcam and microphone both are covered with tape.
Yeah I know what you are thinking.. what’s the surety that it’s Mark’s Laptop isn’t it? But seeing the similar setup in his previous Facbook live Videos we can comfortably say this.
Mark is always on hit list of hackers and in that situation such security is understandable. He has put an extra tap on webcam to prevent any kind of spying and to cut out audio recording of him he also covered his microphone.
In the past there have been many cases where hackers used webcam and used it against the user but covering it with tap blocks the physical image, smart move isn’t it?
And this useful hack is something we can really learn from him. That said, Zuckerberg isn’t the only one to have done this. Amidst security and privacy concerns, this is a trend really catching up. Even experts advise that you should cover your cameras so that it prevents hackers from watching or capturing your live visual feeds.
In April, FBI Director James Comey said he uses a tape to cover his laptop webcam in order to mitigate the danger of secret surveillance.
Comey admits he puts a piece of tape over the webcam lens on his laptop #KenyonCSAD
