Miami, Florida – ProtectStar today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Camera Guard Mac 3 for macOS, a new upgrade to their popular security solution. The app protects any Mac’s built-in web camera and mic from being accessed by hackers, trojans and spies including latest spyware. Version 3.0 brings improved protection against unauthorized access to the Mac microphone and webcam, plus it now offers users of shared Mac computers to easily pin protect any app on their Mac.
Camera Guard Mac app sits quietly in the background, monitoring the Mac’s built-in microphone and webcam for any unauthorized access attempts. The app efficiently blocks any detected attempts, while also alerting the Mac user to the attempts. The utility blocks both known and unknown attacks methods, thanks to its exclusive “Deep Detective” feature.
Users of shared Macs can pin protect their personal apps like Apple Mail, Photos, Contacts, Safari, and even games can be prevented from opening without the correct pin. With a quick entry of a 4-digit pin, the apps are protected from unauthorized access by other users. This new feature is the perfect solution for parents who share their Mac with younger family members and worry their kids might access things they shouldn’t.
“When we discovered that illegal monitoring of Mac users via their Mac’s webcam and mic was on the rise we created Camera Guard Mac in 2016, which offered complete protection against unauthorized access of your Mac’s web camera and microphone,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar The new version of the app offers numerous new features, including improved access detection, protection against Mac ransomware, a whitelist for allowed apps and processes, and support for the Apple’s Touch ID sensor that’s found on the latest models of the MacBook Pro.
