    Question Privacy Screen Protectors Worth It?

    Anyone here use one of those privacy screen protectors for their iPhone devices? I was thinking of getting one but keep hearing, that the privacy black screen effect only works from the left or side of the screen, not the center of it, when is how most people use their phones in the center, not from an angle lol. Anyway what are your thoughts?

    Then it's working as designed. The point is to keep prying eyes around you from seeing what you have on the screen. It's not perfect because you have to see stuff, too, but it keeps away the lookie-lou's.

    I had one on a PDA several years ago. Frankly, most people don't care what's on your phone (or PDA). I found it a pain to have such a narrow angle to see what was on the screen. Sometimes I just want a quick glance at the screen... Maybe if I had lots of business data on my phone I'd feel differently. But I didn't think it was worth it.

    Go for it! That way you'll know for sure. It would be nice if you commented on this thread once you feel you have a "yea" or "nay" on them.

    I received the privacy screen protector, its black and does have a darkened tone to it, and looks to keep privacy when you view it from an angle so it works as it said it would. XD
