    Hi!
    I have a question. I know that someone already asked this, but is it possible to hack Iphones camera. Once, I was chatting in some social network, and I'm not sure is it evidence or not. But this person knew where I was in that time, I mean what was around me. Maybe it was just a conjunction and joke. But it's really scary to think that someone can see me through the camera.
    P.s: sorry for my English

    turn off location services for whichever app you were in. i know that viber and Facebook give your location

    Google Hangouts can also access your location data.

    I really doubt that someone accessed your camera.

    Yep. iPhone is too secure for someone to remotely access it without you knowing.

    By saying where I was, I didn't meant my location ( country, city etc) I meant room, things around me. So weird. Probably it's just conjunction. It was a stranger though.

    You should've written something completely random on a piece of paper and put it in front of the camera to see if he could read what's on it. Or even pointing the camera at something unusual in your room would have been good enough.
