  1. I'm more interested in whether
    It will be able to grab the key even with the browser window inactive…
    And why go far with a camera? There are enough software that can take a screenshot of me pressing PRINT SCREEN…

  2. Network privacy?
    The Ltmtum! Once you transfer information to the Internet, it will remain there.
    Think a little before bringing up personal things and that's all.
    As a system man, I have encountered so many unnecessary leakages of information, nothing completely secure. It's all a compromise between convenience and information security. Just decide what's more important to you.

  3. Photo security
    I also wanted to write down all the things listed here .. But the truth ... it's a small step in the right direction ... well done to McAfee. Now we have to continue ...
    By the way, I have on Galaxy Ace 2 a software called snap n go… and of course have to install a part on the PC… it links the screen between the screen and the phone. I have never used it, but it is possible to implement such a thing with security-level capabilities.

  4. Completely unnecessary
    Deterrent Members Viewing Pictures - Completely Agree - I see no reason to install software on my computer whose sole purpose is to enforce DRM restrictions on me. Anyone who wants me to see the pictures is asked to send them to me in standard format that can be opened with standard tools

    Everything you upload to the network will be there. The software cannot show a "lock on screen" when trying to take a picture from the screen of a camera, for the simple reason that it has no way of knowing if I am in front of the screen if a camera or not

    You can also receive from the screen to a TV card through the VGA port, exactly pixel-to-pixel, almost digital accuracy. Will the software fulfill any secure media path like there is in HDCP? If so, this means that more than half of the computer users, whose screen is connected to a computer in VGA or DVI to a screen without HDCP, will not be able to use the extension and will need to buy a new screen just for that

  5. Completely unnecessary
    If you are up - you want to share.
    I will not install any third party app in my account and I do not expect my friends to do it. Tomorrow they will take all the pictures hostage, and will require $ 10 a month to show them. Along the way, they will also post themselves through my profile, etc.… Why?
