Everyone is concerned about eavesdroppers. Sensitive data is at risk whenever it is displayed on a computer monitor. But preventing shoulder-surfing is difficult in most working environments where colleagues interact, visitors stroll, and strangers may be only a quick glance away from viewing your screen.

Optio Labs' PrivateEye stops prying eyes in places like:

  • Airplanes 
  • Trains 
  • Coffee Shops 
  • Office Cubicles 
  • Client Sites 
  • Hotel Lobbies
  • Meeting Rooms 
  • Reception Areas 

PrivateEye is an easy-to-use software program that automatically protects your computer display against eavesdroppers. It requires only a webcam and a Microsoft Windows® 7, Vista or XP computer.

Prevents Eavesdroppers

PrivateEye Professional senses when others look at your screen, and warns you. This "intelligent rear-view mirror" shows any eavesdroppers' faces in a tiny live video window. PrivateEye stops anyone from snooping while you're working.

Protects Documents

PrivateEye automatically blurs the screen whenever you look away, and immediately restores it when you look back. You will have no need to worry about documents left open on your desktop while you talk with colleagues.

PrivateEye Pro also recognizes your face and automatically locks\unlocks the display when you walk away from and return to your computer.

Mobile Protection

PrivateEye requires only a standard webcam. Designed for laptops, PrivateEye protects your data wherever you go.

  • Protects entire display seamlessly - no application or document changes needed 
  • Zero configuration client installation, no server needed
