HP wants to keep unwanted people from seeing what's on your business laptop screen

HP knows that a lot of people who take their laptops on business trips run the risk of having their information displayed on the screen for nearby unwanted eyes. This week, the company announced a new collaboration with 3M that will result in HP integrating privacy screens on their business-based Windows 10 laptops.

HP cited a recent study which claimed "close to 90 percent of attempts to steal sensitive business information using only visual means were successful" as part of the reason they wanted to make their business notebooks more secure when used on the road. It added:

"The planned commercialized product from the HP and 3M relationship is an innovative technology that integrates the privacy function directly into the notebook display, creating an on demand electronic privacy solution. This innovative display technology is intended to give customers a secure solution to keep on-screen data protected and out of sight."

The new notebooks with the privacy screens will go on sale sometime in early 2016.
