In the past week, a story may have worried one or the other user. Web designer Joshua Maddux and other users found that the Facebook app on the iPhone suddenly accessed the camera in the foreground without their intervention. The creepy moment in the accompanying tweet:
An unintentional bug, as it turned out later, has since been corrected by Facebook. So do we check it and forget it? Wait, not that fast. The incident proves it: Basically, the user can take pictures that are not noticed by the smartphone. This also applies to the iPhone, which is otherwise designed for security. Disturbing, indeed. But should we run now and get these webcam stickers for our smartphones? You can do it, but it is not particularly practical and beautiful.
Well, we didn't think about it before with our first smartphones:

My thoughts on the weekend: The column wants to provide food for thought, call for discussion and reflect on the “news surge” of the week towards the end. A small selection of the previous articles in the column:
- iPhone 9 is still coming: Apple's secret plan seen through
- Apple Watch and AirPods only with an update requirement: does that have to be?
- Smartphones from Africa: isn't Wakanda a dream after all?
Security measure desired on smartphone: Attention, recording
The Mac has been doing better for years. If an application accesses the camera, a clearly visible, green LED always lights up next to the webcam - take a picture! All right. Something like this is unknown with smartphones, but maybe not necessary at all. It would also be possible if the operating system informed on the display when an app was accessing the camera and microphone in the foreground and a recording was in progress. So far, there has been no indication here.
However, such a feature already exists for background recordings (for example of voice memos) - both with iOS and with Android. Now is the time to activate this feature for apps in the foreground. At least that's my opinion. And what do you think about it? Write me your point of view in the comments. Thank you very much and have a nice Sunday.
