The objective is to initiate a private chat without having to check if the recipient's screen is exposed to on-lookers. The intended system shall maintain this status so that there is no dependency on any individual to know whether the recipient is on a private screen. The mechanism to detect the existence of on lookers around a system will rely on existing visual detection techniques.
