Google prepares the test of the function protection against espionage, which will be incorporated into Chrome as an experimental option (‘flag’), which the user can activate or deactivate as desired from the settings section, as shown in Chromium.
Specifically, it will alert when a person is detected spying on or looking over the user’s shoulder at the computer screen. This alert will be silent, well with the icon of an eye or by screen dimming. You could also turn off notifications for conversations that the user is having privately.
This function would be complemented with a human presence sensor, in which the company has been working for a few months, as indicated in 9to5Google. This sensor would be able to detect if a person has been placed in front of the computer screen, and would have the potential to lock or unlock the equipment through facial recognition.
