    Why would Chrome use my webcam?


    The title of this post says it all. I use Kaspersky and I just received a notice for Kaspersky that Chrome is using my webcam. I'm not aware of any reason for this. Could someone please tell me the possibilities? Thank you.......

  2. Windows 10 uses more RAM than Windows 7

    There is problem: Chrome, its an absolute memory and battery hog.

    I would stop using it immediately.

    Windows 10 open up Google Chrome with Windows Help Page when startup (2)

    No, chrome wasn't opened when I shut down my computer. Also, if it does, why the Windows Help Page would show in chrome?

    Why would Chrome use my webcam?

    Chrome can be very intrusive at it's default settings. So go to your settings, advanced settings, then content settings and scroll to camera. Make sure it's set to ask before accessing is turned on (blue) and that no sites are added.

    Thank you. I found that an online mic/cam site had permission to be used (it's a site I use often). However, I wasn't using it so the warming shouldn't have been on. Also, the cam's on light wasn't on. Strange. Anyway, I disallowed that site. Thanks again!

    Thanks. I don't use the browser for Skype. I use Skype directly.
