How To Hack Web Camera (Internet WebCam) Without Software

You know you can hack web camera? Even if you’re not a hacker, you can easily hack an internet webcam. You might wonder you will need some huge and complex softwares, some coding skills… or something like that?
But “hacking” without any coding skills? Seriously?
Psst. Okay, it’s not a “HACK” – it’s just a trick. But it’s awesome, really!

All you need is access to Google Search and java plugin to view video (that’s already installed in every browser, mostly). So, lets move ahead.

First go to Google search website ( and then in the search box type:

“inurl:/view/index.shtml” (without quotes)

Then, press enter. (Noob tip: Copy and paste the text, instead of typing it again)

Google will then show the list of cameras working on net. That’s it! Trick over.

Note: If u type the IP address of the computer in place of inurl then the web camera of that computer can be hacked.

Did I just say “hacked”? Indeed, I did. But It’s wasn’t supposed to be a “hack” at all, you said…

Actually… *read on*

Example: Here is an example of the search. Your query will look something like this:

The above search query will show webcam used at that IP address.

The other Google search links which makes web cameras publicly viewable are as follows:

intitle:”Live View / – AXIS” | inurl:view/view.shtml^
inurl:axis-cgi/mjpg (motion-JPEG)
intitle:”live view” intitle:axis
allintitle:”Network Camera NetworkCamera”
intitle:axis intitle:”video server”

intitle:”sony network camera snc-p1?
intitle:”sony network camera snc-m1?
intitle:”Toshiba Network Camera” user login
intitle:”netcam live image”
intitle:”i-Catcher Console – Web Monitor”

Don’t forget to share this trick with your friends and seem a hacker to them (joke). Happy Hacking! (again…)

  1. Does anyone know how to specify a location? Say that I would like to see cameras available in my town, I know how to find the ip address, but it’s usually a range, how do I get onto the camera grid?

  3. i use to do that in late 90’s its funny and u know a good source to watch someone’s private life……but i was a kid back than just curious and stumble upon this thing….

    and internet is never a safe place…

  4. Well, this doesn’t make the cams visible or hack them or anything close. All you’re doing is searching google for the cameras that are making the captured images available on the internet.

  5. Since when does viewing publicly available information that is available through Google count as hacking?
    I heard you could also hack the White House by going to Google and using the term “White House.”
    You’re a disgrace and so are the 12 year olds who are impressed by this garbage.

  6. Isn’t really hacking, but it is quite fun – found this on YouTube and Johnny’s IHackStuff website. It’s pretty cool.
