The Sharp Aquos Crystal landscape privacy screen protector is designed for those looking to protect their information from wandering eyes when using thier smartphone in landscape orientation. If you’re a regular commuter, have access to confidential information, or you simply prefer to keep your screen private, this Sharp Aquos Crystal anti-spy screen protector ensures your screen is for your eyes only.
Privacy in Landscape Mode
You're using your Sharp Aquos Crystal more so often switching between different apps and getting things done on the move. You realise that you need to flip your device from portrait to landscape mode to enahnce your interaction with the screen whether to watch a video, play your favourite game, read your e-book, check your emails or browse your pictures. It's fascinating how much can be done; however, it is also intriguing how much this device can tell about you.
Have you ever thought about how many people have had a glance at your Sharp Aquos Crystal screen? Whether it is intentional or not, curiosity is undoubtedly uncontrollable, and it only takes a quick peek at your screen to expose something 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal Screen
Even though you may be holding your Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 essence your Sharp Aquos Crystal can undermine your confidentiality and personal information. 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal landscape Privacy screen protector from ViaScreens.
2-Way Landscape Privacy Screen Protection
The Sharp Aquos Crystal privacy screen protector is a 2-way black-out screen that blocks visibility of your display from the sides. 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. When rotating the Sharp Aquos Crystal to a portrait orientation you will still get the same crisp clear image but without a privacy effect.
So, with this landscape version of the privacy screen you get the needful confidentiality when using your device in landscape orientation and when no privacy is required you can flip back to portrait mode.

Effective Privacy using Microlouver Technology
This smart black-out technology is achieved using microlouvers that are embedded within the Sharp Aquos Crystal screen protector. These microlouvers restrict visibility of the screen to 30° either side of the lit display. Beyond the 30° 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.

Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal without a screen protector is not an option. Any type of screen protector would help protect the screen and preserve the value of the Sharp Aquos Crystal as it would aid in eliminating signs of wear and tear on the screen.
Constant use of your Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal lacks and help enhance interaction and experience. At ViaScreens we offer several types of screen protectors for the Sharp Aquos Crystal. We also offer an extensive range of compatible Sharp screen protectors. All our screen protectors are made of enhanced optical films that are durable and do not shatter.
Sharp Aquos Crystal Privacy Screen Protectors
The Privacy screen protector for the Sharp Aquos Crystal 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 Sharp Aquos Crystal 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.
