Are you protected from visual hacking?
 
Most computer users are familiar with common cybersecurity threats like phishing and malicious software. Fewer know the risks of “visual-hacking”
 
Visual-hacking is fairly self-explanatory – it means the confidential information you have on your screen is susceptible to being compromised visually by people around you.

What is a computer privacy screen?
 
A computer privacy screen, sometimes called a privacy filter, is a special, thin piece of plastic that’s placed over your laptop or computer monitor. This helps to prevent prying eyes from stealing your information.
 
Computer privacy screens protect against this by attaching to your screen to restrict the viewing angle –so that only the person in front of the screen can see what’s on it.
 
 
Anyone trying to steal a glance from the right or left side will only be able to see a blank screen.

Passwords, anti-virus programs, and secure systems do a lot to keep your information secure, but they can’t defend against visual hacking.
 
 
V7 privacy filters are excellent for open, high-traffic environments – limiting screen visibility to directly in front of the monitor without blurring or distortion +/- 30 degrees.
 
Plus, our filters have a blue light reduction, blocking approximately 35% of harmful blue light emitting from your screen, reducing eye strain.
 
V7 privacy filters are available for almost all sizes of laptops and monitors – for more information contact us today at v7bids@ingrammicro.com
