Camera Guard makes sure that no hacker, spy or malware can observe you or listen in on you. With just one single click, not only the camera, but also the microphone will be completely protected. Camera Guard is more than just a new safety product - it is an uncompromising unprecedented solution, which secures every iMac and MacBook user perfectly.

Features
  • See nothing - hear nothing. For those who should not. Camera securely protected - Microphone securely protected. With only two clicks the protection is activated and Camera Guard blocks and observes all programs and processes that try to access the webcam of the macOS device. Every attempted security breach will be reported with a signal. To further prevent manipulations, the individual settings of the software can be secured with a PIN that is especially secured by hacker-safe protection. While all accesses and warnings are conveniently protocolled in the log file, the intelligent Deep Detective detects even previously unknown attacks.
  • Deep Detective A smart invention against (un)known threats. With the Deep Detective we have created an intelligent and versatile detective that observes all accesses to the macOS device - similar to an alarm system, a firewall or an Intrusion Detection System - only smarter. Deep Detective permanently controls which process or program currently attempt to access the camera. Additionally it reports known - and thanks to modern heuristic methods - also unknown attack attempts. Every possibility to spy on you is proactively restricted from hackers, spies and Trojans.
  • Safe. Minimal resources. Camera Guard is an all-round safe, fast and slim solution, additionally we emphasized specifically for MacBook users, a sustainable usage of system resources: The software uses minimal disk space, and has a minimal footprint on central memory and processor, in order to minimize battery consumption of the device at all times.
  • An ideal combination. Camera Guard can, especially with activated Deep Detective, be used ideally in combination with other existing security solutions like anti-virus scanners or firewalls. Anti-virus scanners and personal firewalls have already been stretched to their limits for years: With Camera Guard you surpass those limits, because the software observes and secures specific hardware components that couldn’t be protected by modern security solutions - until now!

The application comes in two editions: Free and Pro. Pricing info can be found here.
