Have you ever been in the airport and noticed that creepy person staring over your shoulder to see what you are surfing online? Have you had to work on sensitive information but in an environment that is open to others to sneak up on you? Have you tried to buy your wife a gift online but worried about her sneaking up on you to see what you have been shopping for online? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be in need of the solutions by 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software and 3M™ Privacy Filter.
As more startups, educators, and businesses move towards open workspaces and coworking environments, finding a solution to privacy is key. The 3M™ Privacy Filter (physical filter) already blocks out those who are on the side of you but now with the 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software you can have true 180-degree visual privacy.
How does 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software work?
Using the computer’s webcam, 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software learns the user’s face through facial recognition software. The facial recognition feature is designed to reveal the screen for the authorized user only.
When an eavesdropper from behind is detected the user is alerted with a pop-up of intruders face.
The screen also blurs when the user looks away or steps away.

I download a free trial of the ePrivacy Filter to give it a try. It was simple to get started with setting up your webcam and taking a photo of yourself for the software’s reference. As I turned my head or walked away the screen went blurry. As I was working on this blog and my son came up behind me, it warned me of someone behind me and went blurry. With a variety of level of security for the software and setting options, you can make it work best for your environment.
Why not download a 30-day free trial of 3M™ ePrivacy Filter Software for yourself now?
Be aware the software requires a webcam, which dictates the field of view and is currently only available for Windows XP and higher. Sorry Apple fans, it’s not yet available.
