Windows 10 Laptop
My Question or Issue
When I open Spotify desktop app it is accessing my laptop camera without asking for any permission? Why does a music app needs background access to my laptop camera? I am not feeling safe to use this app anymore. Please clarify.
Hi there @mdnshkumar,
thanks for reaching out about this !
I can confirm that the Spotify app doesn't need or use access to the Webcam.
Could you point out where exactly you've started noticing this issue ?
Please make sure that there aren't any other programs running in the background that might be trying to get access the your camera.
Eliminating programs through your Task Manager might help figuring out if there are any such software running.
Another indication is to understand which source or website was used to download the Spotify app. Microsoft version use or the official Spotify website.
Last but not least, i do recommend performing a clean reinstall.
Hope this shed some light.
Keep me posted 🙂
