When you see Mark Zuckerberg covering up his webcam, you know there’s good reason. After all, webcams are the windows into our world for hackers and snoops. And with facial recognition taking off as a security feature, taking control of your webcam is only going to get more important.

But let’s be honest, sticking a square of paper over your camera isn’t exactly a foolproof fix. Camera Guard Pro offers a software solution.
