Candace Says FBI Director's New Webcam Warning 'Is Freaking Me Out!'

When FBI Director James Comey was asked why he has a piece of tape over the lens of his laptop's webcam, he gave an answer that's sending out an alarm across the nation.

According to The Hill, 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.”

Not all webcams have a little lid, though, especially ones built into laptop screens. Those, like Comey's, require you to put a piece of tape over them to cover them when you have your laptop lid open.

The question those actions pose, though, is: What is the likelihood of someone hacking into your webcam remotely to spy on you?

Obviously high enough to make the FBI director paranoid about it. His warning today certainly frightened the hosts of "The View" today.

Candace Cameron Bure was especially vocal, exclaiming, "It's so scary! I don't know how I missed the memo on this. I always thought that no one could see in unless I had it on. I didn't know [if it was] just sitting there, if I wasn't on my computer, someone could hack it! This is freaking me out!"

How do you feel? Do you think it's smart to take heed of this warning? Do you already?
