You looked alright to me.....

 

What do they get from doing it? You'd have to ask a pervert. Hey @Ice man, what do perverts get from secretly accessing a strangers webcam.

Do you actually HAVE a webcam?  Is it built in or an add on?

I only ask, because certain unscrupulous firms selling so called anti spying software sometimes use pop ups like this in order to sell their services!

If you have a built in webcam you would usually at some point have had a bona fide pop up asking you to confirm the level of security you wanted, and the usual default is to block access from others.
Run a scan to check you have not picked up any malware - I use SPYBOT, which back in the old days was recommended by Microsoft before they developed Windows Defender - something I have little confidence in.

By the way, I thought you looked fine in that pink housecoat!  :shh:

I don't do immoral things online, you do. 

A serious note. I agree with Alan on this. Some do things like that only because they can. The majority of IT related things are an attempt to scam the victim, getting access to bank accounts etc. Do a scan of your computer.

It's also a good idea to unplug or cover over a webcam when it's not in use. Webcams can and do get hacked.

Will do:thumbsup:

 

Webcam is part of laptop.  I've put a piece of tape over it now.  Just realised you can buy webcam covers on Amazon - what a world we live in.
