The Director of the FBI has defended covering up the webcam on his computer with a piece of tape, describing it as a common sense security measure.
Speaking at a conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies this week, James Comey said: “There’s some sensible things you should be doing, and that’s one of them.
“You go into any government office and we all have the little camera things that sit on top of the screen. They all have a little lid that closes down on them.
“You do that so that people who don’t have authority don’t look at you. I think that’s a good thing.”
