As Seen On

"Spyslide does exactly what you expect from it, and does it well." - Techaeris

"Spyslide is by far the best webcam cover I ever used" - Elie, Lead Google Security Team

Wait. What is a "webcam cover"? 

A webcam cover is a practical hardware solution that guarantees that no one is spying on you. As more and more reports are being published on the dangers of webcam hacking, the urgency of covering your webcam is at an all time high!

But is using that ugly sticker really the optimal way to cover your webcam and secure your digital privacy?

 

What you should know about webcam spying.

*Factual information about webcam hacking starting at [02:15]. 

"I was shocked to learn the capabilities of many software tools people can buy online for 29,99$ saying "spy on your ex-girlfriend software" that you can install on someone’s computer”.

We made covering your webcam elegant & effortless!

Other webcam covers are:

  • Expensive
  • Difficult to install
  • Consisting out of 2 parts, that are easy to lose
  • Too thick
  • Overall, impractical

The Spyslide Webcam Cover is:

  • One solid gadget that installs in just 5 seconds
  • The thinnest on the market, just 0.6mm / 0.023 inches thin
  • Simply slide open and close
  • Affordable. We included FREE worldwide shipping!

 Is the Spyslide suitable for smartphones?

Absolutely! For most of them, it is, but smartphones come in many shapes and that is why we cannot 100% guarantee it will perfectly fit on all. 

For example, the iPhone 6 & 7 both have camera's that are slightly raised from its surface, and are therefore not compatible with ANY webcam cover.

About the makers:

Firstly, thank you for your involvement up to this point and for that alone we are very grateful! Allow us to briefly introduce the team behind this project:

We are Ties & Peter, 2 guys in our mid-twenties born and raised in the Netherlands.

We were annoyed by the stickers and post-its on our laptops and we decided to develop a better alternative to secure our online privacy. Our first prototype was actually made by Ties' dad (thanks!), which is where it all started.

We are confident that our dedication and time to our work has resulted in an incredible device that exceeds all the needs in a webcam cover. Please help us make this phenomenal security project a reality by supporting us here on Kickstarter!

Safety in aesthetic simplicity is what we value!

 

 

Style and protect your friends

 

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Perfectly operating, and thoroughly tested production samples are already in our hands, and have produced a small trial batch from a highly reliable supplier! All in all we are 100% ready to start production on a larger scale.

However, 'life is like a box of chocolates (Forest Gump, 1994)' meaning unexpected things can happen. If it does, we will keep you up to date. We are very confident in handling any bumps along the way, while continuing to be an asset to the digital age!

Important notice:
All our Spyslides except the Business & Corporate Box will be shipped with Regular Mail. Therefore take into account the Regular Mail conditions in your country. We will add a possibility to have it shipped with a tracking code at our final backer survey to guarantee the safely arrival of your Spyslides.

Thank you for believing in us and if you have any questions please contact us at info@spy-fy.com!
