The article refers to Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Kaspersky Security Cloud — Personal.

Criminals can access your webcam to spy on you. With Kaspersky Security Cloud, you can limit access of applications to your webcam. By default, Kaspersky Security Cloud blocks access to the webcam for applications that have been assigned High Restricted or Untrusted status. For information on these statuses, please refer to this article. When such applications try accessing your webcam, you will get a notification where you can allow or deny access.

If you want to deny access for all applications, you can do it in Kaspersky Security Cloud settings. 

Kaspersky Security Cloud controls access of applications to:
  • Audio data from the webcam microphone, in case the application tries to access audio data separately from video data.
  • Webcam built-in or removable digital media.
  • Webcam functions (rotation, focus, zoom, etc.) control interface.
