Webcam Privacy Screen Invented (FLA-2932)

Share Article

InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is working to submit Shutter Cover to companies for their review.

Most smart devices these days come with a built-in camera, as video chatting has become a popular mode of communication. Unfortunately, this advanced technology also comes with the risk of a hacker accessing the webcam to invade the privacy of the user and view the contents of their home or business.

An inventor from Coral Springs, Fla., has invented the patent-pending Shutter Cover, a security accessory for blocking the lens of a web camera when not in use. "I was inspired to invent this device as a way to provide users with total privacy," said the inventor. "The stories on the news about hackers utilizing a user’s webcam to watch them compelled me to come up with a solution."

Shutter Cover prevents prying eyes and hackers from getting a glimpse into a user’s home or business, deterring potential thieves from further action. This invention is lightweight and easy to put to use. Although it serves as a layer of protection, it also allows the user to easily access their webcam whenever desired.

The original design was submitted to the Fort Lauderdale office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
