The data risk nobody’s spotting: Keep prying eyes away with Kensington Privacy Filters

  • June 06, 2022


Whether you’re working at a coffee shop or even in the office, Kensington privacy filters are a multipurpose tool with benefits that go further than just shielding sensitive data.


London, 19th May 2022 – In today’s business landscape, professionals are more connected than ever, but they are also more vulnerable. With the increased popularity of hybrid working, there is a rise in collaboration solutions that give employees the flexibility and tools to work anywhere, anytime. However, the more agile your workforce is, the more at risk they are of visual hacking.

Visual hacking is the act of spying on sensitive and confidential information on one’s computer screen. Whilst it’s still a low-tech threat, visual hacking is easy, it happens quick, and most people don’t notice it, posing a great security risk for individuals. Still, businesses are putting a lot of investment into data security but continue to overlook visual hacking as a threat. Kensington Privacy Screens are a quick and simple way to protect your data from prying eyes. 91% of visual hacks are successful, 68% of them go unnoticed, and 52% of screens are at risk. Privacy screens gives you more control over who sees your screen data.
