Where Art Thou, Laptop Mic? Find Microphone on Laptops and Desktop Computers

At Tech Wellness we Care About Your Privacy

If you've heard about cyber stalking/hacking/spying and you want to make sure foul play doesn't happen to you, then you're probably want to cover your webcam and your microphone.  Trouble is Where is that mic anyway?

We Got You

We set the IT team out to find the location of microphones on 8 popular laptops. 

And now that we made it easy to find them, you may want to cover them with something other that plain, boring, messy tape? Something cute and fun that's re-usable and doesn't leave any sticky residue behind.

We Got You Again

We’re proud of our CreepBlockers  Microphone and Webcam Covers

  • Creep Blockers designed specifically to encase those tiny microphone holes, often on the sides of your computer and The Big Speakers on Macs
  • To cover tiny holes, there are Creep Blockers that are the long, thin strips which say fun things like Shhhhh, Top Secret, Keep Calm and Ohmm.
  • For Mac laptops there are large Creep Blockers designed to cover the mics built into the keyboard speakers. These beefy decals say Private or you can use a blank one.
  • Don't forget to cover the webcam too! Each sheet comes with 25+ options
