  • Shield your screens from prying eyes while experiencing best-in-class brightness and exceptional clarity. 3M™ Bright Screen Privacy Filters utilize nanolouver technology to help you deter visual hackers while enabling up to 85% light transmission for the intended user. This makes them approximately 25% brighter than competing privacy screens. They are important for data security plans and helping you meet your organization’s privacy and compliance regulations.

  • With remote and hybrid work here to stay, sensitive data has never been at greater risk of being stolen by wandering eyes. 3M™ COMPLY™ Privacy Filter Attach Solutions allow users to easily shield or share information thanks to two attachment design options. Magnetic attach solutions provide quick-click privacy for monitors, while flip attach solutions allow laptop users to easily switch between privacy and screen sharing.

Help prevent visual hacking in the workspaces of today and tomorrow

When we think about cyber hacking, we may imagine a shadowy figure hunched over a laptop in a dark basement. But visual hacking can happen anywhere employees work, with a simple sideways glance at a neighboring screen. In a 2019 study, 82% of IT experts identified visual hacking as a serious threat to their organization.¹

The risks of visual hacking have escalated since COVID-19 and the global shift to remote work. A 2021 study sponsored by 3M found that the average percentage of US employees working remotely had nearly tripled from 24% to 65%.2 A 2022 McKinsey survey found that 58% of employed respondents (92 million people across jobs and employment types) could work remotely all or part of the week.³

Remote work is here to stay. For many employees, their screen – not the office or their home – is their primary workspace. Screens go everywhere they go: cafés, airports and countless other crowded spaces brimming with wandering eyes.

    Privacy screens – not an accessory, but a necessity

    Help prevent visual hacking in an everchanging workspace with the help of privacy filters from 3M. Our computer privacy screens incorporate microlouver and nanolouver technology that darkens the screen at certain viewing angles while maintaining high brightness for the intended user. They attach easily to devices to enable instant, low cost onscreen data protection, enabling employees to work efficiently while keeping sensitive data private.

    But don’t take our word for it. When surveyed, 85% of IT experts in the United States agreed that privacy filters are a simple insurance policy against visual hacking.¹
