If you use FaceTime on your Apple device, you may want to disable the app or at least cover your camera with tape until there’s a patch for a newly discovered bug.


9 to 5 Mac uncovered the issue, which many social media users were able to recreate, where the caller’s audio and front-facing video is able to seen and heard by the recipient before accepting.


Apple released a statement Monday saying they are aware of the problem and a software update will be coming next week.


iPhones and iPads running iOS 12.1 are affected, as well as PCs with macOS Mojave installed.


The Group FaceTime feature seems to be the culprit, which Apple has disabled for users.


If you’d like to turn off FaceTime on your device, follow these steps to do so:


  1. Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad
  2. Search for the FaceTime option, or scroll to the option, and select the icon
  3. Switch the FaceTime toggle to off
