About the Project

Just like webcam camera hacking is widespread, microphone hacking is also. We started this project because we volunteer with students who use digital camera enabled devices. The shocking truth is that just about anyone can hack into your computer and turn on the camera or microphone without you even knowing it. The only way to guarantee your privacy is to cover the camera or block your microphone when you are not using it. We believe that it is your space, so you should be the one to decide when your camera or microphone should be used.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    The micro electronic circuitry in Nope Sound Blocker forces your device to sense an installed mic.

  • Reality:

    This feature is a creative way to circumvent the laptop always having a mic on.

  • Claim:

    World’s Thinnest (Nope Webcam Cover)

  • Reality:

    This is another potential risky claim, in terms of actuality. There is not much variation in thickness when compared to other similar products, which most of them are already very thin.

Something To Think About

Some would consider just a simple piece of tape as the "World's Thinnest."

  • Claim:

    Works on almost all devices

  • Reality:

    This is a reality when considering the front facing camera.

Something To Think About

Keep in mind that the back side cameras on a phone will still be uncovered.

  • Claim:

    Convenient Storage (Key chain holder for Nope Sound Blocker)

  • Reality:

    The storage element is a thoughtful feature to keep track of the NOPE devices.

Bottom Line

Nope - Sound Blocker and Webcam Cover is a package deal that combines several key elements to provide privacy on different devices. The tech is straightforward without a lot of moving parts that allows for this project to be set up for possible success.
