Be Like The NSA With These Extreme Mac Security Measures

Editor’s note: This post was originally published by our partners at PopSugar Tech.

After spying on our personal online data from social networks to Internet providers, the National Security Agency might not currently be seen as the most trustworthy group, but when it comes to securing the privacy of personal computers, you bet the NSA knows what they are talking about.

The Atlantic highlighted a tip from an NSA document urging their employees to put tape over their iSight camera or just remove it entirely. The suggestion came from a document titled “Hardening Tips For Mac OS X”, which definitely piqued our interest — if the agency tapping into our phones is taking these security precautions, maybe we should too!

If you intend on keeping the data on your computer confidential, heed this advice straight from the NSA for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard users to “harden” your system against hackers.
