The Targus 18.5” LCD Monitor 4VuTM Privacy Screen is designed to fit 18.5” widescreen LCD monitors with 16:9 ratio screens. To protect your information, tiny vertical blinds on the surface of the privacy screen narrow the viewing angle so data is only visible directly in front of the monitor up to 30 degrees away from the center of the screen. Onlookers will only see a dark unclear screen when attempting to view the information from a side angle. In addition to providing security, the screen also blocks the glare to help reduce eye strain. The Targus Laptop Privacy Screen can be easily attached by using clear adhesive strips designed for LCD filters or with the included tab guides that stick to the edge of the LCD bezel to hold the screen in place or with the patent-pending under-bezel tabs that keep the privacy screen flush against the monitor’s screen for optimal viewing performance. Users can position the tabs so the screen easily slides on and off. Highly portable and easy to use, the Targus Privacy Screen prevents onlookers from seeing valuable information often viewed on a laptop or LCD monitor.
Easy Installation Options
The 4Vu™️ Privacy Screen comes with reusable silicon adhesive strips and tab guides so you can quickly and easily attach the screen directly to your display.
30° Viewing Angle
Even in public places like hotel lobbies, airplanes, or cafes, the 4Vu Privacy Screen keeps your data safe from prying eyes. Your content is visible only to the person directly in front of the screen and up to 30° on either side. You have full clarity and visibility, while onlookers or passersby see only a black screen.
Reduced Glare, Even in Bright Rooms
Our anti-reflective coating reduces glare and improves light transmittance under most viewing conditions. The result is brightness that’s up to 12.4% higher than competitive privacy screens for comfortable, clear views.
Suited for Workplace or Personal Use
One study found that employees are 50% less productive when their visual privacy is at risk, and that two in three employees expose sensitive data outside the workplace1.
With more of us working in open office settings, on-the-go, or in unsecured environments, visual privacy is a critical consideration for employers and employees alike. Privacy screens add a layer of protection that encourages productivity at the same time it protects confidential information.
Blue Light Filtering
Current studies suggest that prolonged exposure to blue light — emitted by virtually every digital device we own — may be linked to eye strain and fatigue, headaches, retina damage, and other health concerns. The 4Vu Privacy Screen filters blue light to reduce eye strain and minimize the potentially harmful effects on your vision.
Anti-Microbial PropertiesThe 4Vu Privacy Screen features Anti-Microbial treatment to help prevent bacteria growth on the privacy screen. They are ideal for touch screen applications.
