Do you cover up the camera on your mobile devices

story imageMedia is covering why people disable cameras by covering up the camera with tape on their laptops and mobile devices. Is this paranoia? Does the NSA or hackers really get into your phone or PC just to take pictures of you in the nuddy? Pipedot, I ask you: Do you cover up the camera on your devices, and if so, why?

That would certainly block incoming data to the phone at that moment, but what's to stop software on the phone logging undesired information locally for later upload next time you do use it? OK you could monitor the memory and card free space but some data could still be stored in an existing fixed length file.
