Privacy and the camera and microphone

I am a novice. How strong is the privacy that is being built into /e/?

What I am wondering is if /e/ will prevent apps from recording/transmitting via the camera and/or microphone without my knowledge. If I have /e/ installed do I still need also to consider installing camera blocking and microphone blocking apps? If so, are there apps recommended by the /e/ team?
