Because i want to?! Actually no need to explain why.
I want it!.....if possible.

But ok.....I feel uncomfortable if a camera always watches me
It is like on my Laptop. I have disabled it in the Hardware Settings. If i need it i'll enable it.
And don't tell me you've never heard about webcam fraud.

Just stick a black piece of tape into it.
Or disassemble the phone and put the tape behind the glass.
You're gonna regret it, Snapchat is the new trend...

In the case that i really wanna use it it would be too complicated.
I was also thinkin about that.....Till now i have no use of Snapchat.
And i think that will last for a while. I am not the Hardcore chatter.

I'd use a black marker - maybe even a permanent one, if you wish.

If software can disable the camera then software can enable to camera. If there is a way to disable the camera with software then a good hack can enable the camera.

Google might be buddies with the NSA but I highly doubt the front camera is watching you

Besides, I'd be more worried about them secretly tracking you using GPS, Wifi or cell tower triangulation
