Privacy and security concerns around webcams have led many people to disable or cover their webcams up completely for fears that a hacker might take control of the camera.

MMD, brand license partner for Philips Monitors, has introduced a solution to this problem: a monitor with a webcam that only pops up when it is needed.

The new 27-inch display (272B7QPTKEB) blocks off a potential spyhole for hackers by enabling users to keep the webcam hidden in the display frame when out of use.

The new monitor is available now and can be seen at at the Philips stand at IFA 2016 from 2 to 7 September in Berlin.
