ABOUT APPLICATIONS' ACCESS TO THE WEBCAM
Criminals may attempt to obtain unauthorized access to your webcam by means of dedicated software. Kaspersky
Internet Security blocks unauthorized access to the webcam and notifies you that access has been blocked. By default,
Kaspersky Internet Security blocks access to the webcam for applications that have been included in the High Restricted
or Untrusted groups.
You can allow access to the webcam for applications (see the section "Allowing application access to the webcam"
on page 85) included in the High Restricted and Untrusted groups, in the Application Control settings window. If an
application from the Low Restricted trust group attempts to connect to the webcam, Kaspersky Internet Security displays
a notification and prompts you to decide whether to provide that application with access to the webcam.
