Sometimes we want to keep what we are doing on our devices private and unseen from other people, and a phone privacy screen can achieve just that! But how do they actually work? Similar to a vertical blind, privacy screen protectors block the view from particular angles. When a blind is facing downwards or upwards, you can only see through it at certain angles; the privacy screen works in the same way. It stops people around you from being able to view the screen by blacking out the display when viewed at specific angles.

What Is It?

A phone privacy screen is an adhesive film that goes directly on the display of your device, and it works instantly! For further benefits, it is recommended you dim the brightness slightly so that it is entirely black for those attempting to view the screen around you.

How Does It Work?

As previously described, a phone privacy screen works in the same way as a vertical blind and can, therefore, block people around you from viewing your display. The screen protector uses a polarised film to achieve the darkened viewed from specific angles. The polarised sheet works by using an optical filter that blocks out light from particular angles. Only you, the user, can see the display clearly as you are viewing the screen straight on. Here at ViaScreens, we off two types of privacy screens; a 30 degree and a 45 degree. This means that when viewed horizontally or vertically, the view is blocked at either 30 degrees or 45 degrees, depending on which type you use.

How Do I Use It?

It is so simple! The protector is an adhesive film so, all you need to do is place the sheet on top of your display, and it will stick instantly. Give it a little rub to buff out any air bubbles, and you are good to go! Our protectors at ViaScreens are created in a way to ensure that the sheet does not peel off. Furthermore, the devices highly responsive touch remains the same when using the privacy screen protector.

Additional Benefits

As well as making your display private and unseen from those around you, a phone privacy screen can also reduce blue light. Too much exposure to blue light can result in a deterioration in eyesight and can cause headaches. Furthermore, the screen protector can also prevent your display from getting marks or scratches. Any damage that is caused to your screen will only affect the protector rather than the actual device. Therefore, using a phone protector can prolong the lifespan of your device!
