When it comes to securing the privacy of your computer screen, there are a number of options on the market. The most common method is to place a film over your screen that hides your screen from being seen from side angles. This means that the user needs to be directly in front of the screen to see it.
Although this is still a viable option, 3M offers another solution that may just revolutionize the screen privacy industry. By using your computer’s webcam, 3M’s ePrivacy Filter can tell when your face is in front of the computer screen or when somebody else’s face is in front of the screen.
If it cannot detect your face, the screen will blur so that others cannot see the information on the screen. It can also detect when somebody is in view of your screen behind you while you’re working on it. If this occurs, a popup will appear on your computer screen revealing the face of the person behind you.
Adding privacy to your computer screen is great for users that work with sensitive information in public or high traffic areas. We all know what it feels like to have someone sneak up and surprise us from behind when working on the computer but with the ePrivacy filter, you can rest assured that you’ll know when somebody is behind you.
By using the 3M ePrivacy Filter in conjunction with one of the physical 3M Privacy Filters that attach to your computer screen, you can ensure that nobody will be able to see the information on your screen from any angle.
