Only in some limited viewing angle, the grid interference will be reduced and clearer screen image can be shown. But this solution not only affect the screen image quality but also has the viewing angle limitation too.

    The core of this invention is to define a mechanism / application that protect sensitive data by software. The application is being encrypted and only can be decode by using a special glass. It can protect the information that the user is using without being peeked.

Advantage:

    1) Solved the peeking issue using software instead of other accessories. 2) Only the user with the glasses can see the encrypted data. Current anti-peeking mechanism is using the angle to protect the information, which is not 100% guarantee the safeness.

    3) Encrypted data by application. Provide users with the flexibility of choice. Scenarios to apply this invention: 1. You are working in customer site with the privacy filter switch on. You may still working on the confidential document, and not worrying about be seeing by customer.
