Hi, i have an hp laptop and it has a built in webcam. I realized that all you have to do to start the webcam is open the program, because when i clicked on it the light came on and i could see myself. I have never used it before and i didn't know there was one or where to find it on the pc. I only realized the webcam yesterday and so I am worried that it could have been broadcasting all this time. If the webcam is on and I am connected to the internet does that mean the whole world saw me? Or is it that they can only see you if you are in a messenger chat or invite someone to access your webcam? I am really anxious and terrified.

Well it all depends on the security of your computer.

For the most part youd have to invite someone to view you.

Thanks for the response.

So I would have to have a url and share it with others to view me?

What computer security are you talking about? How do I check it? What should I look for?

Is there a way to check if others viewed ur webcam? Like perhaps IP addresses would be logged somewhere?
