Some people tape their laptop's webcam with tape or a special camera cover to prevent it from being activated unseen. Apple warns MacBook users not to do this. That could cause damage to the MacBook.
When folding the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, the American company from Cupertino did not take tape or camera covers into account. All calculations are based on very tight measurements.
In addition to damage, such a tape or cover could also cause problems with the light sensor that is required to use functions such as the automatic brightness setting.
MacBooks have a green light next to the webcam. It is designed to always burn when the webcam turns on. It is also advisable to check which programs are allowed to use the camera, according to Apple.
