CES 2016 - Privoro has designed a privacy guard product for smartphones and desktops, vying to protect user privacy from anyone who wishes to spy on them by providing a list of protective features.




The smartphone product features security measures like three types of protection against intrusion and location tracking while also blocking all unwanted microphone and camera activity. Made up of a case and cover, the privacy guard is designed to fit over your phone, blocking 100% of radio frequency signals while sending confusing signals to your phone's microphone, "making eavesdropping nearly impossible" as explained in a recent press release. This case is designed to fit the iPhone 6 and 6S only.


The desktop privacy guard aims to cover an inbuilt webcam and microphone, once again blocking the camera from viewing anything and sending confusing sound to the microphone. Charged through a micro-USB connection, this product is designed for iMac monitors from 21.5-inch to 27-inch.


Both products are available for pre-order and will be released in spring 2016 and Q1 2016 respectively.
