Privacy problems with using laptops in public has always been a concern. As we all know, a low tech way to hack a laptop is to simply peer at the laptop while the owner uses it. I’ve personally have seen a fair share of laptops being used in public with no consideration of those around them. A big problem I think is just human psychology. While a person is engaged in using their laptop, their mind is in that mode and everything around them is a separate world.
What people really should do is put more thought into preventive measures. They sell many different privacy filters these days that are made of a type of plastic using microlouver technology. They have gotten better since they first came out. Nowadays they work well enough that someone sitting next to you will not be able to make out your screen.
Then the question comes up, what about someone behind me? Well you need to make sure you use a laptop in public where your back won’t be exposed to others. Like sitting in a corner or near a wall of some sort. That is unless you have snuggie security.
Who knew snuggie security idea could be an answer?
There is the everywhere security model.
The side security model
and the keyboard security model
Would you use snuggie security? or do you guys think there is a better way out there to keep your laptop privacy, other than the things I have mentioned.
