Dear experts,

I have a new laptop that I am using it in office, the laptop has built-in webcam. I am wondering about the security of webcam so there is a chance the OS compromised and then used webcam to take pictures for the office.

I was thinking, what is the best way to block webcam from running by any applications ? I have tried to lock it from keyboard that comes with new laptop you can use short cut by pressing fun + cam buttons to lock the webcam, this way it works but sometimes after restarting the OS then it will run. Is there any way to block the webcam until when I want to use it then I can re-activated it ? Waiting for experts.

Thanks in advance.
