SpiShutter for MacBooks released, protects webcam privacy
Web camera privacy accessory SpiShutter has been released for Mac laptops, offering an always-available physical barrier to block the built-in camera on a Macbook Pro or MacBook Air laptop. Consisting of an opening in the center of the strip that lets its user enable the webcam by sliding the strip left or right, the SpiShutter then blocks the camera physically when not in use. SpiShutter can remain on the laptop when closed, and is coated with low-friction powder to prevent the screen from scratches. Priced at $20, SpiShutter is available in black, silver and yellow through Amazon.
