Default Paranoid Floyd. What are suggestions to cover or disable front camera?

Most readers will probably think I wear a tin foil hat, but many of the current things I've been reading, lead me to think that the powers that be can activate the front camera on phones and or laptops for unscrupulous reasons, if they want to. Me believing that the NSA are spooks that do whatever they want, whenever they want, has brought me to the point that I've decided to block or disable the front camera, since I use my phone a lot. Much more than a laptop. Any one have suggestions on how to cover the front camera if you have a case, yet make it easy enough to remove if you want to take a selfie? I have a speck candyshell grip case and a mime tempered glass screen protector.
