Len­ovo has un­veiled a suite of new lap­tops fea­tur­ing nifty pri­va­cy­con­scious fea­tures, such as a builtin we­b­cam cover.

As re­ports of hack­ers gain­ing ac­cess to users’ we­b­cams con­tinue to per­me­ate the me­dia, Len­ovo’s new lap­tops are a wel­come change for those who re­sort to man­ual meth­ods (e.g. tape over their we­b­cam lens).

Len­ovo’s new lap­tops in­cor­po­rate a ‘ThinkShut­ter’, which is an in­built se­cu­rity cover for the de­vice’s we­b­cam.

ThinkShut­ter can be moved to the slide for video chat­ting, and moved back again af­ter use.

Len­ovo’s new ThinkPad X280, plus three new T se­ries lap­tops – the T480s, T480, and T580 feature the ‘ThinkShut­ter’ feature. The new ThinkPad also fea­tures a USB-C charger.

Face­book’s Mark Zucker­berg has pre­vi­ously re­vealed that he places a piece of his tape over his we­b­cam cam­era, thereby prov­ing the de­mand for Len­ovo’s nifty pri­vacy con­scious in­no­va­tion.
