Just heard on Sport Talk radio that there a warning about hackers using built in cams on TV and computers. Also they hack Alexa A.I.. That's another reason why I choose Cortana. It hanging in there at not being hacked. So government says to put tape over cams, if it's not a add camera. Just passing on the media. Don't want people watching you in your home. Have a great day.

This is old news.
Most laptops (if not all) have a small LED light next to their webcam lense so you will know when it is turned on
The reported hackings are almost certainly a result of poor user security and not a system hack or backdoor to IoT devices.
But IoT devices don't allow much configurations be done by the user, so how can users be responsive?
like for example how can you make your Internet-connected fridge or washing machine more secure?
