The article concerns Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Personal.

Webcam Protection is a component of Kaspersky Security Cloud 19 that prevents unauthorized access to your web camera.

You can deny access for all applications or create groups of trusted applications which will be allowed to access the camera. See this article for instructions. When these applications try to access the web camera, you receive a notification with the option to allow or deny them access.

Kaspersky Security Cloud does not control access to:

  • Audio stream from the webcam’s built-in microphone, should the application try to access audio data separately to video data.
  • Built-in or removable drives of the webcam.
  • Other features of the camera.
