✔ Best Answer
Is it possible you have Gesture Control or something similar? I can navigate through webpages and forums by simple motions captured through my webcam...

With that said, the most common way to access a persons webcam is by the installation of a program that triggers the webcam on certain events, such as program execution.

If you truly believe that someone may have access to your webcam either by a malicious program (Trojan) or even may have had access to your PC without your knowledge, I would suggest contacting a professional who can inspect your system.
