Disabling your Webcam

When you disable your webcam with VirtualShield, all other software on your computer will be prevented from accessing it. This protects your system because your webcam can only be accessed by one program at a time.

This feature is included with all of our IdentiSafe plans. Currently only available in the Windows/Linux application(s). Coming soon to other devices.

Note: Your webcam's power light may remain on while this feature is enabled, but your webcam is not recording any video.

To disable/enable your webcam, follow the instructions below:

  1. Open VirtualShield and select the IdentiSafe tab from the left-side pane.

  2. Select the Disable Webcam option.

Here's a quick animation of what the process will look like:
