Where Art Thou, Laptop Mic?

Hello!  Purchase CreepBlockers here!  We’re proud of our CreepBlocker exclusive: Microphone covers. Creep Blockers designed specifically to encase those tiny microphone holes, often on the sides of your computer. These Creep Blockers are the long, thin strips on the sheet(Shhhhh, Top Secret, Keep Calm and Ohmm etc.)— Plus we’ve included large Creep Blockers(PRIVATE) designed to cover the mics built into the keyboard speakers. We’ve identified the locations of built-in mics on 9 popular laptops for you as you’ll see below. It’s important that you firmly apply the Creep Blocker over the microphone to “seal” out the sound. You can test the application by turning on a camera/audio recording app, recording some sound and then playing the recording back. If we don’t have your computer on the list, please record as directed above and “tap” around all surfaces of the laptop in an effort to zero in on the correct location.   You can also watch our Cover you Camera video! Thanks again and here's a worry-less-wireless world. Love,   August
