Theoretically, if your PC/laptop has a built-in webcam, you could be filmed at any time. But it'd take someone with a great deal of hacking skill to do so.

If the camera attached to your PC or built into your laptop is
turned off in Windows 10, it should be completely secure against
hacking by anyone who doesn't have physical access.

However, if you accidentally install malware, it could possibly
turn the camera back on.

In the Start Menu, click Settings, then Privacy. On the left is a list
of things that have privacy settings. Click on Camera. You can
choose to not allow any apps to use the camera, or you can pick
and choose specific apps that you want to allow. Examine this
list to see if it allows any program that you do not want accessing
the camera. If you have installed a program, or if a Windows
program is listed, it will probably behave according to the software
publisher's description. But if you don't recognize the name of a
program in the list, then it could possibly be malware.

I've never heard of this actually being done.

If you are concerned about filming when you don't want it to then just cover up the webcam when not in use.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Twenty hours after Derek posted, this thread shows up as the
most recent thread posted to, so someone must have posted
after Derek, but the post was then deleted.

I actually put a little piece of Post-It Note over the camera on my
new laptop before the first time I connected it to the Internet, and
haven't had any reason to remove it since then. I made sure the
sticky part isn't touching the lens.
