Dell Webcam Stops when Laptop is Locked

By Clendanielc ·
I have a Dell Lattitude E6530, Win 7 PRO, that has an integrated webcam built into it. Im trying to figure out how to use the webcam and have the PC in locked mode at the same time. Is that possible?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That would be a function of the software that runs the webcam

Never tried it, there is an app called iSpy that claims to do that.

3rd Party Software

Having a webcam running while the PC is in locked mode is considered a security issue. Windows does not have this functionality built in to it. When a PC is locked, it's locked (as far as Windows settings go). You'd need some type of 3rd party software as robo_dev suggested.
