I am looking for a program to alert me (notification window, email, etc.) whenever my webcam is turned on.
If possible, it would log when the webcam is turned on and off.
- Ideally free
- Running on Windows, ideally supporting Windows 7 and 8.1

Kapersky Antivirus can block access to webcam. Whenever an application tries to access the webcam, Kaspersky explicitly asks the user's permission. Kaspersky also allows you to
always allow some applications to use the webcam and
always deny others. I am not sure if other antivirus software provide the same functionality, but it is most likely that they do.
