Step 3- You will see port forwarding options when you start this tool. You will have two options, serveo or ngrok.

Copy this URL and send to your victim. Once your target opens the URL, it will ask for camera permission (that’s where you need a little social engineering trick).

As soon as your victim clicks on allow, you will keep receiving photos captured from their front camera without knowing them in every 3 or 5 seconds until you turn off the tool and server by pressing ctrl+c or your target closes the tab and browser.
