Abstract

Frequently people have items displaying on their computer screens that they don't want others to see. We disclose the use of RFID technology to drive what is displayed on a screen in both an affirmative and negative way. With this technology, when an unauthorized viewer comes in proximity to a computing device displaying a document, the computing device would react appropriately to prevent disclosure of sensitive data.
