During a Wednesday speech, FBI Director James Comey discussed a myriad of issues concerning privacy and encryption in the wake of the U.S. Department of Justice’s very public spat with Apple over hacking into a locked iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters.
Although the government used legal action to try and compel Apple to aid in unlocking the iPhone, when Apple refused, the FBI later announced that it had found a way to successfully break into the iPhone.
Although Comey addressed some of the public’s concerns over privacy and encryption during his speech, he also discussed his own unusual practice of placing a piece of tape over his laptop’s webcam — a gesture that is often deemed to be “paranoid,” according to NPR.
