This new iOS 14 feature will tell you if someone’s watching or listening to you with the use of any app. It will show a green or an orange dot in the corner of the screen if any app activates your camera or microphone.
An Apple spokesman said: “An indicator appears at the top of your screen whenever an app is using your microphone or camera. And in Control Centre, you can see if an app has used them recently.”
However, there are several apps who have the permission to access your camera or microphone such as Camera App or Recording App or Instagram.
But some may come as a surprise and you will see the dot, where you can swipe down from the corner of your phone screen to access the Control Centre. This will allow you to see which app is monitoring you – so you will know who is watching you and why. Also, Users will also need to give an app permission to use the microphone or camera on the phone.
