Back in 2016, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg came under fire for a seemingly innocuous photo he posted online. Sporting a wide smile while touting his new Instagram achievement, the picture also captured Zuck’s laptop that appeared to have a tiny piece of tape over the camera and microphone. The internet exploded with laughter as the media mogul, who’s estimated worth tops $81 billion, apparently resorted to such low-brow tactics to remain private.

But hey, if Zuckerberg cares enough to cover his camera, shouldn’t you? Fortunately, you don’t have to use some janky piece of tape or tissue paper to keep your webcam secure. With this slick webcam cover, you can keep spying eyes out of your public life.
