If you can see on your screen the image that your webcam is taking then that means that it works correctly! All our tests run on the "client side" - which means that we do not and can not see or record the image coming from your web cam. In this test your browser asks for permission to see the output of your computer's webcam, or the browser on your phone asks for permission to see the output of the camera - and the output is then transferred to your screen. That makes it easy - if you see the cam video then you know it's working and connected. As was mentioned above, everything that happens happens in your computer and no information is being sent to our servers. We care about your privacy. True, some cams have a microphone built-in as well.
