It’s rumored that skilled hackers are able to take over the front facing cameras on laptops when they’re not covered up.

It appears as though Zuckerberg, who is worth $35.7billion, is trying to prevent that from happening by placing a piece of tape over his camera, making the webcam useless.

Zuckerberg has been previously photographed at the same desk.

Roughly nine months ago while on a tour, he showed off the same desk that’s complete with the same items on it then as it is now, according to Gizmodo.

This isn’t the first time businessman was concerned about his security and privacy.

Back in February he was photographed out on a casual jog while on a trip in Berlin with at least five security guards running alongside him.

The new-father was not taking any risks on the trip after he was threatened by supporters of ISIS online.

Furthermore, Zuckerberg has no less than 16 people who protect him, his wife Priscilla and their daughter Maxima at their $7million Palo Alto, California home.

In five years, the 31-year-old’s company has spent more than $16million protecting him and his family.

The firm disclosed the staggering amount spent on security for Zuckerberg – the fourth richest person in the world – in a regulatory filing back in April.

It reveals that in 2015, $5 million was invested in bodyguards and other protective services to ensure the safety of its founder and CEO.
