The manual pretty much shows you how to apply the privacy screen protector to perfection.


First off , below we have the privacy screen protector placed on the device screen, as you can see from the image below it fits just right, the camera and speaker slots are left open of course.
65If you look at the film from the side angle there is a tiny bit of bulk, not too much.



The real test is when the screen is on, as shown below. Does it hide the text? Does it hide what is on the screen completely? The short answer is no. I found this pretty interesting as this is the whole point of a privacy screen for it to be tinted enough to show pretty much blank “black” from an angle, this privacy screen protector does however blur out what is on the screen which makes it unreadable as it serves it’s purpose. Overall I would give this privacy screen protector a 7/10 grade. Quality we could give it a good 9/10 as the matte finish shows it is made of  good quality, as far as performance goes 6/10 as it does not completely “blank” out what is on the screen but blurs it out, to a degree.67 68
