Title (EN) USER-CONTROLLABLE SCREEN PRIVACY SOFTWARE
(FR) LOGICIEL DE CONFIDENTIALITÉ D’ÉCRAN COMMANDÉE PAR L'UTILISATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) The disclosure relates to software that provides fine-grained user control over when and how a software-based privacy filter is used to reduce clarity and/or visibility associated with content rendered on a display screen. For example, according to various aspects, the software may have access to display screen and various other components that can be used to detect and/or track current context associated with information displayed on screen. As such, based on current context, the software may determine an area displayed on screen having current interest to one or more authorized users and activate a software-based privacy filter configured to reduce the clarity and/or visibility associated with information displayed on the screen outside the area having current interest to one or more authorized users as needed (e.g., based on a sensitivity level associated with displayed information, sensor-based inputs indicating a sensitive context, etc.).
(FR) L'invention concerne un logiciel qui fournit une commande d'utilisateur à grains fins concernant quand et comment un filtre de confidentialité logiciel est utilisé afin de réduire la transparence et/ou la visibilité associées à un contenu restitué sur un écran d'affichage. Par exemple, selon divers aspects, le logiciel peut avoir accès à un écran d'affichage et à divers autres éléments qui peuvent être utilisés afin de détecter et/ou suivre un contexte actuel associé à des informations affichées sur l'écran. Ainsi, en fonction du contexte actuel, le logiciel peut déterminer une zone affichée sur l'écran présentant un intérêt actuel pour un ou plusieurs utilisateurs autorisés et activer un filtre de confidentialité logiciel configuré de manière à réduire la transparence et/ou la visibilité associées à des informations affichées sur l'écran à l'extérieur de la zone présentant un intérêt actuel pour un ou plusieurs utilisateurs autorisés si nécessaire (par exemple, en fonction d'un niveau de sensibilité associé aux informations affichées, des entrées basées sur un capteur indiquant un contexte sensible, etc.)
