Mic|Bloc - Microphone Blocker. Privacy shield for internal microphones. Made from metal and silicone for 3.5mm audio jack
If you cover your camera on your phone or laptop (good call), but not the microphone, then you've missed something. Our Mic|Bloc does just that by blocking the internal microphone port, so other applications can't access it, and your privacy is safeguarded against covert sound transmission and recording. Simply plug it in and you're done - the microphone is blocked. No software installation required. Plug 'n Play.
- Plug 'n Play. Plug it in and you're done. No installation required.
- Sturdy aluminum housing with a durable silicone cap.
- Effective protection of privacy against covert sound transmission and recording.
- Blocks the internal microphone port of your device to prevent sound transmission.
- For all 3.5mm headphone jacks in laptops, phones, tablets, computers, etc.
The Mic|Bloc is crafted from robust aluminum with a silicone cap and keychain. It shields you from eavesdropping and microphone hacks, similar to how a camera cover prevents unintended image transmission.
Works with all devices featuring a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Before inserting the Mic|Bloc, ensure that no software/app on your phone or laptop/computer/tablet is accessing the internal microphone; otherwise, the Mic|Bloc cannot access the microphone. It's best to simply close all running programs completely, then insert the Mic|Bloc and you're ready to go. Your eavesdropping protection is now active. You can test the function easily by starting software/apps that require the microphone, such as Skype, Telegram, or a voice recorder. You'll notice that these apps won't "find" the microphone anymore and will display an error message, or they will simply not transmit any sound from your device without an error message. So, if you want to use an app like Skype, remove the Mic|Bloc before starting the app, so the app can access the internal microphone again. Important: When the Mic|Bloc is plugged in, the speakers on most computers/mobile devices will also stop working, as the device sends the signal to the blocked headphone jack, which is blocked by the Mic|Bloc.
As you know, there's no 100% security, especially in IT; so always be cautious. Stay safe!
