Hello everyone!

So I am using a mac, and while I am not using any applications that require a webcam (like skype or video chat clients), I see a red dot on my webcam.

Does this mean my webcam is on and spying on me?

If so, what should I do? If it is spying on me, then it could record my voice.

Thanks in advance for the help.
