But a photo he posted on Tuesday, intended to promote Instagram’s user milestone numbers, may have ended up revealing a little more about Zuckerberg than he intended: Dude hasn’t lost any of his hacker caution when it comes to protecting his privacy.
A couple of eagle-eyed observers pointed out that the laptop on Zuckerberg’s desk not only has tape covering the webcam, but there’s also tape covering the Apple laptop’s dual microphones. That’s right, even one of the most elite (and richest) coders on the planet still takes rudimentary measures to ensure that nobody is spying on him.
This inadvertent reveal comes just weeks after Zuckerberg’s social media accounts were hacked, one of which reportedly had the not-so-complicated password “dadada.”
And if Zuckerberg’s hacker background and role as a major tech leader aren’t enough to convince you that he isn’t just being paranoid, consider the fact that earlier this year FBI Director James Comey admitted that he puts tape over his webcam.
