Turning Off Camera Privacy Mode in Lenovo Settings

Issue/Question

When I use an application that requires a camera image my Lenovo laptop displays a camera with a line through it instead of my image.

Environment

  • Lenovo laptops

Resolution

Your camera is likely muted within your Lenovo settings. This application goes by a few different names; to resolve the issue, follow the below steps: 

  1. Search your computer for Lenovo Settings. This may be called something else depending on what laptop you have.
  2. Expand the window that appears until you see the Camera tab on the upper right side.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the settings until you see the Privacy Mode setting. Click on the toggle to turn this off. Your image should appear in the preview window above it.
