Of late whenever i open/startup my laptop i get this alarming pop up message on my screen
"Host Process for Windows Tasks is using the Webcam" The message seems to be emanating from Kaspersky
As a safety measure I always cover my laptop webcams with a piece of black masking tape as soon as i buy my laptops. (Apparently Mark Zuckerberg also covers his with tape) A friend of mine also started noticing this pop up message on her laptop. Could this be a Windows 10 update glitch? or is it a normal Windows 10 behavior,and if so, how do i fix it. I’m just concerned that people without Kaspersky installed or any other antivirus that monitors webcam activity might be having their Webcams turned on without their knowledge.
PS: Googling for a solution to this problem hasn’t helped much. Alot of people on the web are also getting the same message but provide little to no solutions to the problem.
