Have you ever been witness to a colleague’s inadvertent or embarrassing personal disclosure during a screen sharing event? Perhaps you’ve recoiled in horror at the sight of a client’s sensitive personal details being freely circulated to an online audience or been privy to a browser history that’s utterly cringe-inducing! If you’d rather not stumble into that awkward abyss and end up on a timeless blooper reel like the infamous “Zoom Cat Lawyer,” or the “Potato Boss” (two remote workers who inadvertently activated inappropriate filters during a Zoom call) – then read on!
Screen sharing is akin to a digital exposé, where your virtual world becomes a stage for all to see. The ability to share our screens with others is an awesome way to facilitate real-time collaboration and the seamless exchange of information. While it’s a modern technological marvel, it also comes with its own set of privacy pitfalls. Screen sharing means that whatever you’re seeing, they’re seeing too.
In an era where we traverse a fine line between work and play (with much of it on our computer desktops), the art of selective sharing becomes imperative. We therefore need to think very carefully about what we should and shouldn’t reveal to bosses, colleagues, clients, family, or friends when sharing our screens.
We should all be conscious of privacy and security when it comes to sensitive and confidential information – and for good reason. Anyone who has been the victim of a personal data breach will certainly attest to that! Businesses and individuals are responsible for a plethora of information some of which needs to be kept strictly under wraps. Letting your screen run wild and uncensored during an e-share event might just result in the unintentional release of sensitive or personal information, or an accidental overshare of your “look-away-I’m-blushing” material.
Have you ever indulged in the timeless delights of a classic sci-fi series, where intrepid starship commanders fearlessly navigate the cosmos? Should they wish to elude the less-than-welcoming advances of a rival spacecraft, they harness the power to virtually cloak their vessels, rendering them hidden from plain sight. Well Snip & Hide does for screens what cloaking technology does for starships. If you need to share your screen online or share screenshots and want to shroud out sensitive information, Snip & Hide provides the perfect solution.
Instantly select areas on your screen you want to hide – and blur out private and confidential information quickly and easily. Don’t risk inadvertently sharing sensitive information that could also be used to carry out fraud, identity theft, or cyber-attacks. Disclosing personal and confidential material can also result in financial and legal troubles and impact your professional reputation. Snip & Hide can help safeguard privacy before going live and safely prevent accidental disclosure.
Snip & Hide’s instant blur feature prevents wandering eyes from seeing what they shouldn’t. Simply select what you want to hide – or capture a screenshot with Snip & Float after blurring out the specific areas you need to hide on a screenshot before sharing.
Quickly blur out the stuff you don’t want anyone else to see before using a screen sharing application like Zoom or TeamViewer online. First blur and then share your screen via any popular TeamViewer alternative or screen share app – CoScreen, Discord, Google Meet, Skype, Slack, Surfly, Teams, TeamViewer, Webex Meetings, Zoho Meeting, Zoom, or any similar application.
Snip & Hide helps you to maintain full control over what gets shared before any online calls or meetings begin – simply select and blur.
