Hi all, new mac user here - my ipad seems to have a number lenses on the selfie / front facing camera.

None of my webcam covers seem to fit over it or cover all the lens’s - how does one cover these cameras with a slider style webcam cover?

Thanks

Not sure what this has to do with Mac anything as we’re talking iPad but I think the Pro only has one camera on the front, the rest are sensors for Face ID - make sure these are not covered up in order for the function to work smoothly.

I'm going to keep using ACE bandages over any lenses. I snip very small sections off the roll and easily clean any residue when replacing them.

Especially for my MBP, I was concerned about hard items being used on a spot that might eventually damage the camera, screen, etc.

hi thanks for the replies - the suggested webcam cover looks like it will also cover the sensors - the camera placement makes it diffcult to cover just the camera w/o interfering with the sensors for face ID. The ideal would be a cover which goes across the camera and face id (cause i really dont need to use that) which means maybe 2 normal covers?

I cover my laptop/computer cameras with a sticky flag but don’t brother with iPad or iPhone. Even camera covers are incapable of providing adequate privacy - What can be heard is just as valuable and private as what can be seen. If you want privacy, take yourself somewhere well away from technology.

Sometimes - it depends how long it's been left on there. Whatever is stuck on there is easy to remove with a swipe of the sleeve or with a clean dry cloth. At least for the sticky flags I use (usually 3M post-it brand tabs or flags).
