Norton Camera Protecion

Hi, I want to ask does NIS have camera protection like KIS or Eset. I mean does NIS information user that the camera is turn on? Eset and KIS inform you and ask you to enable or disable camera when you try to use her.

From my link above.

Introducing SafeCam

  • Norton SafeCam enables the customer to be secure using webcam devices on the Internet. It prevents applications and malware from accessing your computer's webcam without your consent.

Now you know as much as me.

Re: Norton Camera Protecion

Don't like Kaspersky for all those "feautures" like camera and mic protection, anti-banner, software updated and other. Antivurus should do it's own work and this things should be done by other specialized programs. Also about camera protection - seriously, who would spy through web cam for ordinary people like us? It would be better to make improved protection against different miners or Trojan ecryptors. Just my opinion of course...

Hello

This is one case where students webcams were used to spy on the students. This was like 8 years ago. There might be other cases similar to this one.

If you purchase the Norton Core, then anything that connects to the web is protected. Norton Core includes 1 year of complementary NSBU, but with unlimited number of devices..

I believe that this spying always happen after system was hacked by some sort of malware, so Norton could prevent it now, without SafeCam feauture.
