Installing a Computer Screen Privacy Guard
Simple instructions for installing a computer screen privacy guard can be watched in the above video. Please note: Installing a privacy guard for your computer screen can lead to disaster if not correctly applied. Removing all dust from the screen should be your first priority unless you are installing a 3M Privacy filter. It will also be wise to install these filters in a well-ventilated environment. Air bubbles can cause extra time to install one of these privacy guards so make sure you watch for those nasty little ones.
One important factor that most of us don’t consider is to get the specific measurements of the monitor before buying a screen privacy guard. This is done by measuring from the inside corner diagonally downwards to the bottom corner, then horizontally from left to right. This way you will exactly have the measurements of your screen. Choosing a smaller privacy filter will let other people see parts of the screen and by choosing a bigger filter will overlap the monitor’s edges. Make sure before buying that you choose the correct size computer screen privacy guard.
