Disabling your Microphone
When you disable your microphone with VirtualShield, all other software on your computer will be prevented from accessing it. This protects your system by automatically muting your microphone each time the volume level increases.
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: To disable a different audio device, first reset your default audio device from the "Windows Recording Devices" screen.
To disable/enable your microphone, follow the instructions below:
- Open VirtualShield and select the IdentiSafe tab from the left-side pane.
- Select the Disable Microphone option.
Here's a quick animation of what the process will look like:
