HOW DOES THE PRIVACY FILTER WORKS

A Privacy filter is a screen designed to fit securely on your screen protecting your data from prying eyes.  Micro louver technology designed to polarize light so that its darkened from the sides.  Micro blinds darken the screen once past the 30-degree angle. The darker the ambient light the better the filter works. See image below for the filter in action.
