Quote from Hardware for Protecting Privacy and Security
Microphone Blocker A microphone blocker is a device that prohibits audio hacking, in the form of a hardware accessory for a smartphones, laptops etc. It functions as a dummy mic jack, so the device thinks it has a microphone plugged in, and hence disables the internal one
I decided after this recommendation also to block my microphone.
With a DDG search I found guide to disable the microphone with settings menu. But I trust Hardware solutions more and found mic-lock:
- How to securely disable microphone for macOS and iOS based devices without opening the device (destroy a chip)?
- Can you recommend the product Mic-Lock? The only product I found with DDG. They use aggressive marketing slogans.
Edit, after rereading the original source:
Note: This section is intended just to be a bit of fun, it is entirely possible to stay secure and anonymous, without having to build or buy anything. Now that more devices have been added, it's not been possible to test everything here, so these products should not be taken as recommendations, just interesting ideas, and a bit of fun
