How do you keep people from looking over your shoulder while using your computer? Do you ever try to sneak a peak at someone else's computer display? The distance between a computer screen and our eyes is the first two feet of our digital world that needs to be secured.

"PrivateEye is active display security software that responds conveniently and automatically to a user. It presents a normal clear screen when the user is present and looking at the display, but when the user's attention moves away from the display the software immediately blurs the screen. Similarly, if PrivateEye detects an eavesdropper it can automatically blur the screen. The solution also includes a facial recognition engine. PrivateEye requires only a standard webcam."

If you step away from your system and someone else decides to sit down and poke around, PrivateEye will present a confusing jumble of garbled text. It'll even notify you if someone tries to peek over your shoulder -- and display a picture of your peeping Tom, throw up an alert, or sound an alarm.
