Webcam Protection

Webcam Protection informs you about processes and applications that access your computer's web camera. When an unwanted application tries to access your camera, you get a notification where you can allow or block the access. The color of the alert window depends on the application reputation.

If you want to change the rule later (for example change block to allow), you can do so in Advanced setup (F5) > Device control > Webcam protection > Rules.
