Webcam Privacy Screen Invented (FLA-2932)



Past News Releases



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. For more information, write Dept. 16-FLA-2932, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368. Learn more about InventHelp's Invention Submission Services at –

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
