With special glasses, telecenter users have internet privacy

Terra has just launched in Paraisópolis slum in Sao Paulo the project VIP – Visão de Internet Protegida (Protected Internet Vision). Made by DM9 (brazilian publicity agency), the action aims to promote the ‘democratization of privacy’, a new way to use the Internet in slum telecenters or LAN Houses. That’s because, as you know, in telecentres and Internet cafes computers are always very close to one another, taking users’ privacy when checking emails, check your bank account and social networks. Terra found that removing a film of LCD screens, they are completely white – the content displayed becomes invisible. This same film was then placed in special glasses, so that only those who use the glasses can see what appears on the computer.
