With Millions Currently Working from Home, Now More Than Ever Protecting Personal Privacy is Top Priority
(San Mateo, CA) – June 9, 2020 – Personal privacy is a universal concern. Now more than ever, people want to control their privacy as much as possible. Eyebloc®, a leading, U.S. based company focused on protecting consumers’ privacy and data through professional-grade tech accessories and products, today announced their licensing partnership with Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals, and The Professionals’ Choice. The first products to be released through this partnership include Nanobloc™ Webcam Cover (K64571WW, SRP $9.99) and Eyebloc® Webcam Cover for MacBook (K64570WW, SRP $19.99). The products are available now through CDW, with other resellers to follow.
Nanobloc uses nano suction technology to cover the camera on any device, leaving zero residue. If the nano suction picks up dirt, simply wash with water, allow it to dry, and the blocker will be ready to stick thousands of more times. Since the universal webcam cover is compatible with tablets, phones, and computers, anyone can use Nanobloc to protect their privacy on all their devices.
Eyebloc Webcam Cover for MacBook is a patented webcam cover designed exclusively for MacBook. It attaches directly to any MacBook using the laptop’s built-in magnets, eliminating the use of tape or glue, and remains firmly in place when the laptop is closed. The product works with MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and MacBook, and easily slides to enable the webcam when needed.
Both the patented Eyebloc Webcam Cover for MacBook and the Nanobloc Universal Webcam Cover have been chosen by fortune 100 CTOs to come pre-installed on all their laptops because they are the only webcam blockers to work without using adhesives, resulting in no messy residue and the ability to close laptops without the threat of damaging trackpads.
“Our belief in the need for this product, coupled with our continued commitment to delivering the world’s best webcam covers, led to the perfect alliance with Kensington,” said CJ Isakow, President/Founder of Eyebloc. “Working with Kensington’s experienced engineers and global distribution, we are able to take the functionality and quality of our patented webcam cover for MacBook to a new level.”
“Kensington’s history of focusing on professional users and innovative physical security for computers, plus Eyebloc’s focus on today’s online privacy and data security, makes this an ideal partnership,” said Gwen Hsu, VP Global Product Development, of Kensington, “With today’s professionals increasingly working from home, this product helps our business customers stay secure and protect their privacy.”
