Privacy is extremely important, especially on our mobile phones. No one likes the idea of being on the phone and suddenly the camera turns on. Can it be boring? Uncomfortable? Violate our privacy? All this and more. That is why it is essential that we know how to see which iPhone apps are accessing the camera.
The first thing to do is open “Settings” or “Settings” which is part of the other applications. Once we are in “Settings” we will have to look for the “Privacy” option.
Here we are going to look for the “Camera” option. After that we will see a list of all the apps that have sometimes asked us for permission to access the camera and are currently maintaining it.
From the switch that appears on the right side, we will have the possibility to block the use of the camera or to allow it. We’re just going to have to tap on it and if it’s gray it means said app won’t be able to access the camera, while if it stays green it will have permissions.
Applications that do not appear in this list will also not have access to the camera. So we shouldn’t worry about it. Once we’re done, we can close everything and that’s it. Immediately and without doing anything else, you will have better control over which apps have access to your phone’s camera.
If you have iOS 14 or later, it’s much easier to know when an app is using the camera. How? ‘Or’ What? Whenever an app uses the camera, a green dot will appear just above the device signal, next to the Wi-Fi signal and battery icon, in the upper right corner of the phone .
Even though we see an orange dot, it means that some apps are using the microphone. This way we know the camera is in use at that exact moment and we can be vigilant to block permission at all times.
