What is all this?

SpyBye excludes surveillance through the camera of your smartphone. The user will open it only when going to take photos or record video. And even if your device gets app-spy, the attacker will not be able to see anything. A similar idea was from the creators of the plugs IS|CC, but with a cover you can be sure that the “blind” don’t accidentally lost.

At the start of SpyBye will be available for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. Included in the list of the Plus-version is not specified. There are four versions: black, clear, white and red. There are also plans case for iPhone X, but considering the main way to unlock the scanner Face ID, the Champions of privacy rather initially would not have bought it. After Apple developers will move to models of other brands (Samsung, Huawei, and so on), as well as tablets. In future versions of the plugs can occur even at the microphones.
How much is it?

On Kickstarter, the price of the case starts from 19 Euro, without discounts SpyBye can be purchased for 29 euros. Success requires to reach 42 000 Euro, but so far the fundraiser is not too active. Probably the guys should have add support for a pair of three popular Android flagships.

If before December 5, the team still will achieve the goal, the supply is expected to start in February 2019.
