For example using privacy screen protectors or phone cases with a manual shutter over the camera.

    I have disconnected the built-in camera and microphone on my laptop. If I want to have a conference call, I just plug in equivalent external devices.

    Sure. I try to disable or disconnect cameras and microphones when possible. My laptop’s camera has tape on it and on my PinePhone I’ve disabled the camera with a switch.

    Tape over my webcamera on my laptop is about all I do physically everything else I trust to software. My pixel cant have a privacy screen protector because of the fingerprint scanner in the screen sadly

    I have my power conditioner mounted under my desk with the switch easily accessible. When not in use, I routinely power that off. I don’t have WoL enabled, but it gives me peace of mind anyways knowing that I’m pretty close to airgapped at that point.
