How well do those privacy screen protectors work?
stephenb 2 years ago
I was looking though a magazine I picked up at CES, and saw an ad for 3M privacy screen protectors for tablets, smartphones and laptops. I missed the booth where they had them, so I didn't get a chance to see them in person. Maybe I'm a little paranoid about it, but I've always been uncomfortable using my laptop in public. Even when I have nothing to hide, I still feel uncomfortable knowing that someone could be watching my display. It may be weird, but that's just me I suppose. Plus there are times when I am actually entering financial data that I wouldn't want seen. In any case, the 3M screens attach like most screen protectors, and block the display from being viewed except from pretty much straight on. Does anyone know how well they work, and how durable they are. I think that they are relatively costly, and don't want get it if I have to replace it all the time should they scratch really easily.
