I had a message today from my security system on my phone which said my camera had been used at 11.27pm when i was asleep. How do i stop this from happening in future?

Hi

I have looked into this issue with our developers and have been advised that this is a flaw in the underlying Android platform that we have flagged with Google.

This is being caused by the website that you are viewing requesting access to your camera or microphone. We could keep this request hidden, but we think it would be better for you to make an informed choice. We are working on ways to reduce the frequency of these messages and this will hopefully be in a future update. In the meantime, you can adjust this in the Android application settings.
