Developed with 3M privacy technology, HP Sure View eliminates the need to carry additional tools to guard sensitive information. Users can simply press the f2 key to immediately transition the PC to privacy mode, which reduces up to 95 percent of visible light when viewed at an angle, making it difficult for others to view information on the screen.

Building this technology directly into the device can help companies better comply with regulatory requirements, specifically for businesses in healthcare, public sector and finance.
