    You need to find which app is using the flashlight/camera module.
    Do you have any third-party flashlight apps installed?
    Any third-party camera apps installed?

    The flashlight is tied to camera permissions as far as I'm aware, so it's an app that has camera access. Go into your app settings and check permissions.

    I get that error if I try to toggle my flashlight on while using my camera, Snapchat, or if Instagram or my banking app are using the camera.

    It's near impossible for someone to hack into your camera, you've presented no evidence to suggest someone us spying on you.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which version of Android is the phone running? To elaborate on L0n3N1nja's response, your system settings might have a list of all apps that currently have Camera permission -- go to Settings>Apps>Permission Manager>Camera, and see what's listed there. This may not be available if the phone is running a much older version of Android.
