Apple has filed a patent application for a technology that will automatically hide the contents of the device’s screen from prying eyes.
In our computers and mobile phonesthe mass of private information is gradually accumulating, attracting the attention of others, which by chance can look into the display, passing by or standing behind. However, they can find out not only incriminating facts, but also personal data and correspondence. Apple’s developers apparently followed this issue as the company patents the system, which will detect unwanted viewers and blur the contents of the screen.

Display encryption technology will useface recognition to determine the owner and eye tracking to know which segment of the screen his gaze is directed to. When an unknown face appears in front of the device or a third-party look is against the user's background, the system automatically activates the protective mechanism.
In this mode, the screen will clearly displayonly the segment that the owner is looking at now, and the rest of the area is reversibly blurred, distorted and changes color so that the contents cannot be recognized from the side.
If Apple still implements this technology onpractice, it will initially be applied to smartphones, laptops and tablets, but in the future it can also be integrated into wearable smart devices.
