Are you monitored by hacker or malicious websites?
Here comes a macOS Core Audio level mute control app!

Attention: iMute is NOT a simple mute switch as some users described! It goes far beyond by guarding your microphone and preventing any app or website from turning it on. It will protect you from monitored by hacker or malicious websites.

When you are talking to someone about something important and don't want to be listened to, shut down your Mac or keep iMute running.

Your MacBook's built-in microphone is clear and sensitive, but by default, it is always on(under OS X 10.7 Lion, this bug was fixed, but you still can not mute your mic without deep into system preferences). If you wish to mute your microphone for security or other reasons, you need iMute!

iMute is displayed on top of all other apps, and it mutes your mic, guaranteed. It is perfect for use with FACETIME, SKYPE and other communication software to ensure a muted Mic.

To witness iMute's ability, you may open up the sound panel under system preferences and notice that even if the input volume is at minimal value, you can still see that the microphone is still capturing your voice and the input indicators are flashing. You may notice that even while you are listening to music or watching movies, your microphone is still on.
But with iMute is running, the microphone is guarantied be muted!

In addition, iMute will double check the mute status every 2 minutes to secure you from hackers trying to access your mic.
* iMute is to mute your mic, to mute speaker please use beQUIET.

Review by conekt

Total Joke - I was happy based on the impression from the store… and then I bought it. It's an app that when you start it it mutes your mic. And when you click the "stop" button it quits and your mic is unmuted. $3 is downright theft for this.
