    I get paranoid that the government can see through my iPhone at me anytime they want and I also hate opening the camera app when I'm trying to take a picture of something and I just see my ugly face not realizing the camera is turned around. I hardly ever use the front camera, it would be cool if there was a phone case that covered up that front camera. Is there?

    seriously? wrap tinfoil around your head, then stick a piece of tape over the camera.

    The cameras can record in wavelengths other than visible light, they can see right through most coverings.

    Good job drawing their attention right to your door. I mean, face.

    I have to ask.. who are you that you think the government is going to expend resources just to spy on you through your cell phone camera?

    If you are so important that the government needs to spy on you then they are going to get their data one way or another, covering your phone camera isn't going to stop them.

    Paranoia, unchecked, serves only to limit your enjoyment of life.

    I just used black tape over the camera when I used Android, but not using anything on my iOS devices. Not afraid of the government, but third party apps - I can whip up something that takes photos in various situations (like screen unlock) without the user ever knowing in literally 5 min on Android, so it's less paranoid than you'd think. iOS is another story.

    If you hardly ever use the front camera then why are you seeing your "ugly face" when you open the camera app?

    No, he needs one of these! It has no camera so it's NSA proof! The government cannot track this phone...
