Applying a 3M Privacy Filter to your Mac display is simple. Each of our reversible filters come with a lint free cleaning cloth and a protective folder for storage. The filter is attached to the display with three optically clear and washable strips. The adhesive is formally treated to be removed from the screen without leaving residue behind.
Now for the application, choose either the black or the gold glossy side for your viewing preference and place that side down on the table and clean both your filter and screen with the lint free cloth.
Next apply the adhesive strips to the filter, refer to your enclosed instructions for recommended locations to place the adhesive strips. To start grip one end of the adhesive strips and peel up holding both ends of the strips and align it parallel to the side of the filter. Then attach one end of the strip and run your finger along the strip with light pressure. Next remove the protective blue top film and repeat the process to apply each additional location as per the enclosed instructions. Now its time to put the filter on your display. Align the filter along the bottom of your screen and apply pressure along the side as you fix it from the bottom to top.
That’s it small air bobbles under the adhesive should go within a few hours. To remove it pull from the centre gently towards you releasing it from the screen. If you keep the strips clean you can reapply it hundreds of times, if your adhesive strips get dirty you can wash them clean simply run the adhesives strips under warm water, rub gently and reapply once the strips and filter are dry. For storage you can leave the filter on the screen or in the storage folder provided. Now your 3M privacy filter is installed you can enjoy a whole new level of privacy.
