5 September 2012, Singapore – Privacy screen protectors have become a essential accessories for many smartphone users these days, since many of us use our smartphone to access sensitive work related documents and emails. The last thing you need is someone peeking at your phone when you are replying to a confidential email.
There are many screen protector manufacturers out there, so which one should you choose?
3M has been in the privacy filters business for many years and they are the experts in this field, so we chose the 3M Privacy Screen Protector to do a quick demo on “How To Choose & Test For A Good Privacy Screen Protector“.
2 simple steps to do a quick test on Privacy Filter:
- Facing a bright subject, place the screen protector perpendicular to your eye level (See above top left picture). From this angle, try to notice if there are any distortions or blurring on the subject that make you feel uncomfortable. If yes, this screen protector may compromise your viewing pleasure on your smartphone.
- Next, slowly tilt the screen protector away from you and notice the bright subject gets distorted and disappears. This is to test the viewing angle of the privacy screen protector. If you can still see your subject at the angle seen on the above bottom left picture, I won’t call that a privacy filter. Viewing angle must be restricted for better privacy.
3M Privacy Screen Protector Review
For this test, the screen protector is placed on an iPad to show the difference between using a privacy screen protector and not. The picture on the left shows viewing the text and picture from up front which are comfortable to the eyes and not distorted or blurry, except for a grey shade over it. With a little tilt, the text and pictures becomes blurry and unreadable. The 3M Privacy Screen Protector manages to serve its purpose as a privacy filter and not compromising on the clarity of the display.
