Here are some of the Targus frequently asked questions
What is a privacy screen, and how does it work?
A privacy screen is a filter or panel that attaches to your computer monitor to restrict the viewing angle. It works by limiting the visibility of the screen’s content to only those sitting directly in front of it.
Do privacy screens affect the display and quality of my monitor?
Privacy screens can reduce the brightness and clarity of your display, particularly when viewed from extreme angles. However, Targus privacy screens are designed to minimise this effect and maintain reasonable image quality for the intended viewer.
Are there privacy screens that also block blue light for eye protection?
Yes, Targus privacy screens are designed to filter blue light and reduce eye strain from prolonged use. They can protect your privacy and your eyes simultaneously.
Are there privacy screens that work with touchscreens?
Yes, some Targus privacy screens are specifically designed for touchscreen monitors and laptops. These screens provide privacy without interfering with the touch functionality of the display.
Do privacy screens protect against shoulder surfing in public spaces?
Yes, Targus privacy screens prevent shoulder surfing, which is when someone tries to snoop on your screen in public places like cafes, airports, or public transportation.
How do I clean and maintain my privacy screen?
To clean your privacy screen, use a soft microfiber cloth and a screen cleaner designed for electronics. Gently wipe the screen to remove smudges and dust. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that may damage your screen.
