I tried a few methods to disable the laptop camera, but none work. Can anyone advise how I can do this in elementary OS?

2 Answers 2

gedit admin:///etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Then add this line:

blacklist uvcvideo

You can disable camera in BIOS.

  • Thanks, but my bios (HP Omen 17-2020) has no option in BIOS to do this.
