Droid Privacy Protector Protects Your Privacy by Making Your Droid Unusable
Yesterday was Droid Day. The Verizon stores were not prepared with accessories, so I had to wait to get vital phone accessories like a case and screen protector. I had a little bit of a Twitter rant last night after having to wait 10 minutes to talk to a “sales associate” at the VZ store just to buy the accessories for the Droid I purchased earlier in the day. The worst part is that they VZW guy sold me a privacy protector, not the screen protector.
I figured out how this privacy protector works! It has nothing to do with polarization. In fact, it only blanks your screen side peepers when you are in landscape. The real privacy protection comes from the fact that it makes your touchscreen unusable! The Droid privacy protector nearly makes it impossible to unlock you Droid with the touch and slide feature. I can only imagine what it would do if you set a custom unlock pattern.
Avoid the Droid privacy protector if you actually want to use your Droid!
