It has happened to all of us that we go on public transport or we are sitting somewhere using the cell phone and another person tries to see what we do. A really uncomfortable situation where total strangers try to take a look at our activity on the device. In that sense, we want to present you with an alternative that will allow you to prevent others from seeing your smartphone screen while you are using it.
This is Privacy Overlay, an application with a very interesting mechanism to avoid prying eyes.
So you can prevent others from seeing your smartphone screen
Although it seems much easier for people to try to keep their eyes away from our smartphone, it is not. This leaves us with the responsibility of finding some mechanism to keep these gazes away. In this sense, some quite effective alternatives have emerged, such as the so-called “antispyware” that stick to the screen and generate a reflection when viewed from any angle other than from the front. However, if you don’t want to paste anything on your computer screen, then you should try the solution offered by Privacy Overlay to prevent others from seeing your smartphone screen.
What the application does is generate a block or circle from where you can see the elements of the system, while the rest of the screen will be darkened or opaque. The idea is that you can only see what the visibility block shows, so those who try to see your screen will only have the darkened area available.
The mechanism may be a bit extreme, but it is really effective. Anyone who sits next to you and tries to look at your screen will find an area that is opaque or totally dark. The user experience is simple, activating the application takes only a few seconds and the rest is based on moving the visibility block towards the areas you want to see.
In this way, you can prevent others from seeing your smartphone screen while you are using it.
