The modern day smartphone has done much to guarantee safety and a whole new level of security on mobile device especially with the advent of security tools and features which go beyond the normal password input.
Given security one of the front line in the mobile tech industry, several smartphone manufacturers and OEMs have sought to bring more on the security front including both the software and the hardware approach.
The software approach comes in the form of diverse applications which are present and available for download including the pattern lock and the pin lock as found in most Android powered devices. On the hardware part, tech companies have integrated the fingerprint sensor along with voice recognition and facial ID tech improvements for added security.
However, what happens when you unlock your device for use but have nosy people around prying into your business? It is with this in mind that Blackberry, known for its security consciousness rolled out a new application which allows you block off the nosy people while you chat or do your thing conveniently.
Privacy being a big concern in the internet world especially when entering sensitive data such as your passwords online, Blackberry has catered for its customers through the introduction of the Privacy Shade application.
The Privacy Shade application allows users to block off nosy people who spy on their smartphone screen. The application blocks out all other areas of display on your smartphone except for a small area which allows users to view their screen quite conveniently.
The viewing area can be edited to fit what the user wants and adjust it is as simple as dragging the viewing area around and across your smartphone screen. The viewing area can be further modified into a circle or rectangle as deemed fit by the user.
The Privacy Shade application also allows for users to adjust the contrast, transparency, and shade of the viewing area.However, the application comes to market with a major bad news which is that it can only work on Blackberry phones.
