Although you may think your PC or laptop is private, it is only as private as you make it. It is not only the dangers of being hacked I am talking about either but also the danger of someone reading what is on your screen. Every screen of every PC, laptop, and even handheld the device to a certain extent has the potential of being seen by someone you would rather have not have let see the information displayed as the light from the screen can travel at angles away from the screen, not just directly in front.
Today though it is possible by the use of a privacy screen to greatly reduce the angle in which the screen information can be seen, making it virtually impossible for anyone to see what is on a screen unless they are directly in front of it. This means that by using one of these screens, the person next to you in a plane or train, will not be able to see what is on your screen, affording less chance of having that information used against you by perhaps being used to steal your identity. You will of course, even with a filter, have to be careful who is actually looking over your shoulder but they would have to be close enough for you to definitely notice and so, therefore, refrain from displaying personal information of a sensitive nature.
A privacy screen can not only hide your personal information from prying eyes but perhaps also sensitive work information. If you are in the office of a competitor in business, where are the security cameras positioned? Are there any directly behind you? A privacy screen can therefore also save your sensitive business information from being disclosed to anyone you would rather not have access to it.
Although today these privacy screens are made by several different companies, affording you the opportunity to buy one which fits almost any PC, laptop or handheld device, more information about them can be found on the website https://vista-protect.com/ which will hopeful ensure you get the correct one for your personal needs.
At one time, after traveling, you may have watched your accounts in order to notice if anything abnormal occurred to them, indicating your information had been stolen, however, as identity theft has become more prevalent, the thieves have become more patient, often now waiting several months before using the information they have stolen making it virtually impossible for you to know when or where the information was taken and even less chance of knowing who it was taken by. Today you must, therefore, make frequent checks on your information and not just after a business trip or holiday.
Although you are probably OK using your devices freely in the privacy of your own home, if you share an office, even in that office it may not be wise to input or display your personal information, especially if you do not have a privacy screen on your PC or laptop.
