Will using a VPN prevent my webcam from being hacked?

Asked a year ago

Hello. After hearing about how hackers can use remote-control malware to hack into a laptop's webcam, I am looking for ways to protect my webcam from being hacked. Does anyone know if using a VPN works to prevent being spied on through a webcam? TYIA.

A VPN is a security tool that encrypts or masks all data sent over your internet connection. It means that even if someone were to intercept your webcam's traffic, they wouldn't be able to decipher it because the data is encrypted.

However, there are still risks involved with using a VPN. If the VPN server is compromised, it could allow someone access to your information and/or webcam. Therefore, try to use a premium VPN service such as Surfshark.
