To Trend Micro product development team,

When it comes to preventing hackers from taking control of webcam, solutions such as revoking application’s privileges, disabling the device’s built-in camera or covering it up are not very practical.

I hope Trend Micro could develop webcam protection which permanently monitors apps that try to access your camera and blocks unknown applications.

Hi vedesignnerwxl!

Thanks for the suggestion. Currently, we do have that feature already in our Antivirus for Mac, you can refer to this link for that:
Using Camera & Microphone Protection feature of your Antivirus for Mac.

For Windows computers though, it's not yet available. But rest assured that our development team is always finding ways to improve our products.

Again, thanks for the feedback and have a good day!
