Product Description

SpiShutter is an easy, discrete way to ensure your privacy by shielding your Macbook's webcam against unwanted eyes. You should never have to worry about your personal devices betraying your privacy, but the truth is that there is currently a rise in the threat of webcam hacking.  SpiShutter was invented to address webcam hacking concerns, as well as to prevent those potentially awkward moments when your webcam is accidentally enabled during a Skype conversation or an online conference call. No one wants to get famous from an unintentional embarrassing or personal video going viral!  SpiShutter has an opening in the center of the strip that lets you easily enable your webcam by sliding the strip left or right, and then block the camera when not in use. Made from cold rolled steel, SpiShutter is mounted by leveraging existing magnets in your MacBook's lid and it does not interfere with the laptop's ability to fully close and stay closed. The strategic placement and shape of SpiShutter makes it the perfect option for personalization as well.

I got mine couple weeks ago.
I absolutely love it.
It's very simple to slide it back and forth, so the ease of use is brilliant.
It snaps easily to the screen and it's so discreet you barely even notice it.
It doesn't scratch the screen, even if it's dirty (which mine is 99% of the time).
I would recommend this for everyone concerned for their own privacy.
The days of using sticky tape with the mess it leaves and the time it takes are finally over for me.

As a parent of a "tween" it's been increasingly important for us to be able to control where and what Rob does online. I mean, come on, we've all seen those Dateline episodes where they catch the predators; that's what I think of when it comes to internet safety in our house. Now, let me add that my hubby is a System Admin and is a tech geek of the highest kind so he's locked down our internet sufficiently but there is always that slight chance of a breech.

With the SpiShutter, yes, the kids can still move it and expose the webcam on my MacBook Pro. They'll be able to find ways around anything that we put in place for their safety if they think about it long enough. However, as long as I'm sitting within eye sight, they will not be able to accidentally (or not so accidentally) open the webcam on themselves.

The SpiShutter is a great idea. It's sleek, matches my MacBook Pro (these do come in silver, yellow and black), and because it's powder coated it will not scratch my aluminum top case. For us, the $19.99 that it costs to get one is a no-brainer. I think as the kids get older, we'll want more of these just to have as a precaution.

I am not particularly paranoid about some stranger hacking into my webcam. But it is certainly possible, and whey take chances? The SpiShutter is incredibly well designed and as attractive as can be. Mine is black, and it seamlessly blends with my computer visually. I use it all the time and I never remove from my laptop. No need for that ugly little post-it note anymore!

I love it when simple things - and not expensive at that - solve potentially big problems. Great job, developers! Keep up the good work.

I bought this from the developers website one for my rMbp and 27 inch iMac. It does a great job blocking the cam however the one on the laptop if you take it off it starts to warp. This doesn't hinder it's ability but questions the quality of durability.

I would recommend this to any friend in place of sticking a tape over the webcam which can be counterintuitive.
