Film to Apply to Monitor to Limit Screen Viewing Angle

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I know this must exist, but my Google-fu is failing me. Is there a film I can apply to my monitor that limits the viewing angle so it's difficult for others to look over my shoulder and see what I'm working on?

    If they are looking over your shoulder, you'd need a pretty limited viewing angle. Also, it wouldn't block it, just distort it so they'd see enough anyway.



    I think these would be better:

    They even have a Macified name.

    EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS?!?!?!?! That is a waste of money. a rip off. 3M makes just what you are talking about. Search google under "Screen Privacy Filter" or "Computer privacy filter" or "3M screen privacy".



    Here are a very good link (MacBook Pro or PowerBook featured in pictures!) to get you started:



    http://www.secure-it.com/shop/index.php/cPath/38_41 << that comes in 15.4 and 17 as wall as many other sizes.



    http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...erFilter/Home/ << about the filters from the 3M site



    These are ~50 dollars.



    Hope that helps!
