More Personal Security Ideas

  • If you’re concerned about your house showing in the background, sit with your back facing a wall.

  • If you’re concerned about being seen on camera at all, you can always disable your video.

  • You can temporarily turn off your camera and turn it back on if needed.

  • Use headphones if you don’t want others in your household to hear.
