Privacy is the best policy.

These days, screens are everywhere. And so are visual hackers. With the increase of mobile workers, open workspaces, and the migration of data to the cloud, screens can display private information virtually anywhere.

An unprotected screen can expose sensitive and private information, trade secrets and business plans. And the reality is a visual hacker may only need one piece of valuable information to unlock a large-scale data breach.

Visual hacking: when information is visually captured without permission. But we've got you covered.

Protect your data in public

With an increasingly mobile workforce, it is essential that companies and employees take extra precautions before exposing company information on their device screens in public.

How privacy filters work

3M Privacy Filters Nock side views outside the 60 degree viewing angle, while providing a crisp, clear view to those directly in front of the screen.

Microlouver technology

A single microlouver is about as thin as a single strand of hair. There are thousands of microlouvers within one 3M Privacy Filter—all virtually undetectable by the human eye.

Attachment options

3M Privacy Filters for Laptops attach with optically clear adhesive strips or easily removable slide mount tabs.

Find the right privacy filter for your screen.

Step 1: Determine your screen type

Does your device have a raised bezel or a flat front glass screen? Raised Bezel: screen with a raised frame.

Raised Bezel: screen with a raised frame.

Flat Front Glass: edge-to-edge glass screen without a raised frame.

Step 2: Measure your screen

For a raised bezel screen, measure the height (h) and width (w) of the screen's viewable area within the bezel.

For a flat front glass screen, measure the height (h) and width (w) of the entire glass display.

Step 3: Find your filter

Use the measurements to select the right sized filter for your device from the products listed below.

Best fit tip: if you don't see a filter that matches your measurements select a filter that is smaller, yet closest to your measurements.
