Smartphone Screen Peeking

Keep it Private and Confidential

Your HTC Desire 616 is part of your everyday life. It's always in your hands and you are spending more time than ever looking at it, swiping and typing, than you are using it for making calls. You may be using it for social media, checking emails, doing your shopping, banking, reading or watching videos. It is your companion; it's with you all the time, at home, at work and wherever you go.

Your HTC Desire 616 keeps you connected and engaged. You're switching between different apps and getting things done on the move. It's fascinating how much can be done; however, it is also intriguing how much your screen can tell about you.

Have you ever thought about how many people have had a glance at your HTC Desire 616 screen? Whether it is intentional or not, curiosity is undoubtedly uncontrollable, and it only takes a quick peek at your screen to expose something private or confidential to a stranger. It's a bit like keeping your home door open for anybody to walk in; that's an unwelcomed invite.

Your HTC Desire 616 Screen

Even though you may be holding your HTC Desire 616 straight in front of you, either side of the screen is still viewable. Wandering eyes can see what's on the screen. At close proximity and with a bit of insistence anybody can obtain personal or classified information. This is technically referred to as 'visual hacking' and everybody is susceptible to this form of intrusion so long as your screens are exposed in public.

In essence your HTC Desire 616 can undermine your personal privacy, your confidentiality and ultimately leak data. If you were viewing work related information, leaked data could lead to data breaches which could have detrimental consequences.

Such unforeseen scenarios can be avoided with the HTC Desire 616 Privacy Plus screen protector from ViaScreens.

4-Way Privacy Screen Protection

The HTC Desire 616 Privacy Plus screen protector is a 4-way black-out screen that blocks visibility of your display from the sides whether you are using your smartphone in portrait or landscape mode. It adheres to your screen offering you a crisp clear image when viewing the screen straight on but begins to black-out as you turn away. What this means for you is that the screen looks black to anybody beside you, either side of the screen.

So, if you are flipping your HTC Desire 616 between portrait and landscape modes every now and then, you will be confident that you have all-round privacy applied to your screen.

Effective Privacy using Microlouver Technology

This smart black-out technology is achieved using bi-directional microlouvers that are embedded within the HTC Desire 616 screen protector. These microlouvers restrict visibility of the screen to 45° either side of the lit display. Beyond the 45° point the screen is blacked-out.

Moreover, because this screen protector features a glass-like glossy finish, onlookers will see mirror like reflections from the surroundings rather than light being emitted from your screen.

Looking for a greater degree of privacy for the HTC Desire 616? Check out our Privacy screen protector for the HTC Desire 616 which blacks-out the screen at 30° either side of the lit display.

HTC Desire 616 Screen Protection

It is a fact that at least 45% of smartphone users will damage their screens at some point, in one way or another. Whilst accessorising and protecting your HTC Desire 616 with a case is trendy and important, screen protection is integral. After all, the screen is the essence of the device and any damage to it hinders usability and interaction. Using a screen with scratches, a crack running along the side or broken glass is certainly unpleasant. Although smartphone screens are not as brittle as they were once, keeping your HTC Desire 616 without a screen protector is not an option. Any type of screen protector would help protect the screen and preserve the value of the HTC Desire 616 as it would aid in eliminating signs of wear and tear on the screen.

Constant use of your HTC Desire 616 will undoubtedly render signs of weariness. Without a screen protector your valuable smartphone will start showing scuffs and scratches. These scratches weaken the surface of the screen making it more susceptible to failing if subjected to direct impact like a drop. Furthermore, as the HTC Desire 616 is prone to skin oil from the face and hands, a layer of grease formulates and sticks to the surface of the screen dimming its glim. Simply applying a screen protector will not only protect the screen from the casual scratches and scuffs, it will also keep grease and oil off the screen preserving its shine.

Replacing a damaged screen is extremely expensive. If done by other than the manufacturer, it may void the warranty. A broken screen could also pose a health risk if the user touches the broken fragments of glass. Hence, applying a screen protector will protect your HTC Desire 616 screen from damage and preserve its value when you come to upgrade and want to trade-in or sell your device.

Besides, screen protection is not only about protecting the screen; it’s a lot more than that. Screen protectors are a medium between you, the user, and the screen. They cleverly perform a function that your HTC Desire 616 lacks and help enhance interaction and experience. At ViaScreens we offer several types of screen protectors for the HTC Desire 616. We also offer an extensive range of compatible HTC screen protectors. All our screen protectors are made of enhanced optical films that are durable and do not shatter.

HTC Desire 616 Privacy Screen Protectors

The Privacy screen protector for the HTC Desire 616 is not only a screen protector, it also protects your identity and data. Your interaction with your device prompts the interest of pass-byers whom in turn unconsciously take a peek at your screen. Your facial expressions whether you are smiling or have put on a serious face, ignites their curiosity and because it is a stranger you won’t be able to guarantee their intentions. Even if the onlooker were not intending to steal any information, they would have already learnt something about you by just having a quick look at the screen. This would possibly be happening without you even noticing because your screen is fully exposed.

Installing a privacy screen protector provides the reassurance that using your HTC Desire 616 in public places like cafes, airports, trains, buses, or the office, sufficiently equips you with the needful gear to confine data viewable on the screen to your eyes only. This data could be anything personal or work related. It is a piece of information that can tell something about you to a stranger. Whether it be an email you’re reading or writing, a photo on social media you are viewing and commenting on or anything personal, it's all confidential! So why expose it to the public? You may turn your device away from somebody that you notice is peeking and you may dare to tell them not to look at what you’re doing. But do you know how many people have already seen your screen today?

 

Privacy for Business

Every business and corporate establishment understands the importance of data security. Organisations implement numerous security measures to protect data including end-to-end encryption, VPNs, 2FA, and other technologies. Such technologies safeguard organisations in the cyber space as access to such information could lead to data breaches and could cost the organisation millions. However, what if a stranger got access to this data visually?

With the advent of synced data onto mobile devices and the ever-expanding remote working culture, organisation data is everywhere a member of the team happens to be. When this data is viewed in a public space, every pass-byer possess a security threat and a risk of visual hacking. Whilst a visual hack onto a single person's smartphone could affect that individual, a leak of corporate data could affect the entire organisation and even its clients.

At ViaScreens we help organisations mitigate the risks of visual hacking by offering various privacy solutions for all their IT equipment from smartphones and tablets, to laptops and monitors. Our privacy screens are used by multi-national organisations, government and military agencies and educational and healthcare establishments. For more information get in touch with our B2B Team today.
