The issue has arisen over the past few years as webcams have grown to include extra features in a bid for customers' business.One of these features is the ability to access an external webcam over the internet from anywhere in the world from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or any web browser enabled device.There are now reports that the website's new domain name is registered to the Australia-administered Cocos Islands.The majority of media reports so far have decided not to give the actual web address for the site but despite the global concerns it is still active, and registered via a popular domain name company.In these cases a 'Try Again Later' image is transmitted until further updates are made possible again.The Australian Antarctic Division operates webcams at its four permanent stations: three on the Antarctic continent at Mawson, Casey and Davis, and the other at sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.From time to time, these images can also be viewed on the Big Screen!When this happens you will notice the camera zoomed in to a point on the Square quite often with people interacting with it – putting on a performance, taking selfies or waving to friends and family worldwide who are watching via this page.
People integrate technology into their lives without any thought about the security or privacy settings, blindly pressing "yes" when faced with a piece of technology asking you to stop and consider.
The actual website lists more than 17,000 webcams in 126 countries, including 284 in Australia.
The Australian camera images show the inside of shops, offices and homes, outside in gardens, doorways and driveways and a few baby cots and child play areas.
