Only get this if you need the privacy, otherwise, stay away from it. So frustrating to use…

The most unique feature of this screen protector is the fact that people can’t see your screen. As a screen protector, its not great as its pretty bad with fingerprints and will show wear and tear a little quicker than a glass screen protector. I personally found it incredibly annoying to use this screen protector which I will elaborate in a bit.
Based on my time with the screen protector, I’ve given it a score of 3.3 Eh’s out of 5. This does as well as the Invisibleshield HDX but not as good as the Tech 21 Impact Shield or Rhinoshield. However, none of the screen protectors I just listed have a privacy feature so if you don’t want anybody know that you’re checking out Taylor Swift’s tweets, this is the screen protector for you!
At MobileReviewsEh, we base our reviews on actual usage so with screen protectors, we put them on our phones and we use them. We usually try to test the unique feature of each product and with this screen protector its privacy.
Right now, you can’t tell that I’m actually looking at Taylor Swift pictures on the internet. Real Usage! I’m not, I’m actually playing a game.
In terms of design, the screen protector is fairly re-applicable though 3M doesn’t include any dust removal tools so make sure your iPhone screen is really clean. Bubbling isn’t an issue, even during the first day of usage.
The screen protector extends slightly past the touchable area so you’re not going to lose any sensitivity around the edges. Since the screen protector is plastic, you’re not going to have to deal with chipping and cracks like you would with glass screen protectors but we will note that this screen protector feels much thicker than it is because the edges are quite sharp.
In terms of scratch resistance, this screen protector is a magnet for scratches. Keys and coins will do a number on the screen protector so its going to look pretty mangled after awhile.
In terms of accessing your iPhone’s touchscreen, there aren’t any issues but the viewability isn’t great as the 3M Privacy Screen Protector is a magnet for fingerprints and there is a slight diffusion of the screen. It’s not terrible but you can’t definitely see if if your looking.
For the privacy, there’s actually two settings. If you’re looking at it from the side in portrait mode, you can’t seen anything. If you’re using it in landscape, you can see the screen. Initially I thought that this was silly but on the back of the packaging, 3M has labelled this as a feature so if you want people to see your screen, flip it to landscape and let the world know that you’re a Taylor Swift fan!
Now, the only reason why I would get this screen protector is if you are in dire need of privacy. And privacy because you have confidential information, not privacy because you don’t want people know that you’re a perv.
I personally can’t stand using this screen protector because its really strains my eyes. The slightest change in angle will change how much of the screen that you see which is what the screen protector is suppose to do. However, on the iPhone 6 Plus, I tend to move the phone a lot in order to reach the edges so my eyes are constantly straining to see the screen because what I’m focusing on is constantly changing.
So that’s all I got for the 3M Privacy screen protector for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
