But many of us who've been paying attention to cybercrime and punishment have been covering our webcams for years, and telling all our friends and family to do it, too.

What's more surprising is that it's taken this long for officials and the press to raise the alarm.

In questions during a conference at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Comey revealed that cam-covering is commonplace at the FBI and other government offices.Protecting yourself is as easy as taping it up, just like Zuck and Comey.Sticky notes work well because they have a gentle adhesive, and you can also find privacy stickers for purchase online that are made specifically for putting on (and taking off) web and phone cameras.Perhaps what's such a facepalm isn't the irony of the FBI telling us how not to get spied on, or why cam-covering is such a wacky idea to Comey's friends.It's that the FBI is acknowledging to the public that, really, it's "everyone for themselves" when it comes to technology and personal security.
