FBI director James Comey was mocked for putting tape over his computer webcam to defend his privacy earlier this year and now he thinks it’s a good idea for everyone to adopt. “It’s not crazy that the FBI director cares about personal security as well,” Comey told a Center for Strategic and International Studies conference. “There’s some sensible things you should be doing, and that’s one of them.”
Back in June, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg raised eyebrows when a photo of him at his desk showed that he had covered with tape the webcam and microphone jack on his MacBook.
