Increase data security with 3M™ Privacy Screens and 3M™ COMPLY™ Privacy Filter Attach Solutions

Screens are everywhere. So is the information displayed on them.

Many information technology data security plans lack specific measures to prevent visual hacking. IT managers often implement forms of digital protection to improve cyber security like antivirus software, authentication, encryption and firewalls. But what about when data is viewed on a laptop, smartphone or tablet screen? Sensitive information including legal documents, financial statements and passwords are all susceptible — and with more employees working remotely, the risk is even greater.

3M™ Privacy Filters are a low-cost solution that can quickly and easily complete your data security plan by enhancing visual privacy on your employees’ devices. Innovative microlouver technology from 3M “blacks out” the screen at a certain viewing angle, making it nearly impossible to steal information. When paired with 3M™ COMPLY™ Privacy Filter Attach Solutions, you can have instant screen shielding or sharing, no matter where your team works. Through 3M innovation and expertise, a comprehensive plan that truly protects your onscreen data from all angles is possible.
