Privacy Screens & Filters A Computer Privacy Screen helps keep company data confidential. You don't have to work in a cutting-edge digital company to be concerned about data security. Whether you work alone, for a small service business, or a multi-national firm, there is always data on your computer that could be of value to others. How a Privacy Filter Screen works. They say the simplest ideas are the best and a privacy screen filter is certainly low-tech. They're just thin sheets of polarised plastic that clip or stick onto your laptop screen or desktop monitor. Due to polarisation, unless they're sitting directly in front of the computer privacy screen, all anyone can see is a black screen. Think a Privacy Screen is all bit over the top? How many company reps, maintenance staff, clients, or others, walk past your office workstation on the way to their office? How much could they pick up with just a glance or two at your screen? In this increasingly growing microworld, how many could screenshot your monitors without anyone noticing? Yes, it all sounds a bit 'James Bond', but unfortunately, it is the world that we live in now. Are you fed up with people looking over your shoulder or glancing at your laptop as you're trying to finish up a piece of work on the train ride home? Even if you're only gaming and trying to get to the next level, it can be distracting and annoying. By using a privacy screen, they'll have nothing to look at. Although security is the main concern, a privacy filter also helps reduce eye strain by minimising glare. A privacy screen can also help increase productivity by reducing annoying distractions, including those picked up by your peripheral vision of other close workers.
