We all have been there. You sit in a restaurant, waiting for your meal while checking your e-mails on your laptop. There has to be at least one person who will look at your screen to see what you are doing. HP thought of this problem and they will launch privacy screen feature for its new devices.
The new option is called The Sure View and it is offered on the HP EliteBook 1040 and the EliteBook 840. Users have to press one button and the screen will change its normal viewing into private mode. It seems that this privacy screen is really effective and people will not be able to stay behind you and read what you are looking for on your computer. This can be a good news for the teenagers also. When parent comes in your room, most of them want to see what you are looking at or what are you doing on your computer. With the new HP feature, this will not be possible anymore and you will be safe.
There were some companies who tried this feature before, but HP gives lets users have those filters on their laptop. You can use this privacy screen when you are at the airport or on a train. Nobody will be able to see what you are doing. You can read your e-mails or look at your photos without having to worry that someone could be watching you.
What you should know is that when you use this privacy screen, your battery life will be reduced. The new feature can be used only on TN screens. They are used for cheaper laptops because the photos and colours are worse than those on more expensive screens. HP promised they will put this new feature on all the screens and they want to develop the privacy screen for desktops too.
The income of HP will rise after this new feature will be launched. Many people want a privacy screen and do not like when others look at their laptop, especially when they are working. This feature will help them. Other companies also could develop some similar features in the near future. People want to keep their work safe and be able to read e-mails without other persons looking at their laptop. What do think about this new feature? Would you use it all the time?
