Every individual and corporation is vulnerable to stealth video/audio hacking events that can obtain vital personal and corporate information. Currently all corporations are exposed to access of internal information from the webcam and audio recording functions. The consequences of cyber spying from internal or external threats are the number one information risk management problem facing worldwide commerce. Research has revealed that video and audio spying events are prolific within governments, major corporations, and personal/business devices throughout the world. Readily available spyware is legal to purchase and is being utilized for government espionage, corporate spying, insider trading, celebrity exposure, and child predators.
JH Enterprise Solutions, located in Santa Monica, California, received funding to provide a solution for webcam and audio intrusions. Our mission is to expose all actions that utilize the webcam and/or audio without the knowledge of the user. Stop Being Watched is the result of years of extensive research and development to expose these threats and is essential to protect against unauthorized access and recordings from the webcam/audio functions. SBW exposes this neglected threat and provides a cost effective answer to one piece of this complicated cyber security pandemic.
Stop Being Watched provides an essential layer of privacy that anti-virus products do not address and works in addition to the anti-virus/firewall to expose illegal access and damaging security breaches from the webcam and audio. In addition, our full version offers a deterrent that monitors and documents every attempted access event to the webcam and audio. Stop Being Watched effectively protects government agencies, private industries, and families from intrusive eyes and ears. We believe Stop Being Watched will become the standard of the industry for webcam/audio privacy and be mandated by regulatory agencies and corporations to protect and document all webcam/audio activity.

Yes, software downloaded or installed can remotely activate the webcam, allowing intruders to capture or watch video of you and anyone near your computer, even your children.

Unfortunately, yes. The software that can be installed or downloaded is capable of capturing screen shots and all key stroke information on your computer.

If the SBW popup appears showing a strange program listed in the left corner....Google that program name ....if it is a known spyware, immediately have your computer serviced and the spyware removed.

Q: Does my ant-virus software stop webcam intrusions?
No, anti-virus software does not detect intrusions to your webcam and will not inform you in the event an intruder attempts to access your audio or video. Only Stop Being Watched provides this privacy service.
