HOUSTON—Your Smart TV may be just a little too smart for “your” own good and could be turning the tables on viewers, according to reports.

Hackers have allegedly figured out a way to watch you through your screen!

“We could actually gain access to the camera that’s built into the TV. And so what we can prove here is that with a little bit of extra code, we can turn the camera on in your browser,” said a computer expert.

Experts say the easiest fix is to put a Post-It note or sticker over your Smart TV or laptop camera when you’re not using it.
