Don't you just hate it when someone is looking/peeking/staring at your monitor?

Privacy! - Stop looking at my monitor.

Hi there! Yes, I don’t like if someone is peeking on activities that I have been doing in the computer. I just find it not right since I am not the person who likes to peek as well. I don’t want anyone checking me out when doing something in the computers whether it is for work or personal use. Good luck! And Thanks for the discussion! Happy Mylotting and Happy Holidays! Cheers!

Yeah, i really don't know why some people are oblivious to what they are doing. It's really annoying.

hate is such a strong word...in my case i do not like to do mylot when my husband is around because i really get annoyed because he tries to read everything that i type..for me mylot is my personal space and my private thing so i do not do mylot when he is around to avoid fights.

me too i hate somebody looking at my monitor.... specially when im in public i dont like spying on me its just that they like to get the fresh sites that they want to know.... sometimes its hard to know if your computer that you used are 100% spy free when your renting a computer... thats why i apply for connection at home...

Yeah, I just hate that especially when I'm chatting or reading emails. Those messages are for my eyes only, not for others. I would really appreciate privacy.

"ma'am you have to leave because we're closing" lol! Yeah, that's the usual scenario in internet cafes. People just try to take a peek hoping they could take a glimpse of usernames then add them up in their instant messengers. I know because my friend did that to me.

Arrggghh. Yeah that's my ultimate pet peeve! That's the very reason why I don't like using public PCs esp. in Net Cafes. There's always someone next to you, looking over your shoulders and checking out what your doing too.

As much as possible never use public computers because these computers are the culprits for identity theft. They install keyloggers and when it's time for you leave the computer you just used, all the thing you typed in including your username and passwords will most probably be stolen.

Yes i also don't like when somebody is trying to look at my monitor especially when i am working on the internet Like checking my E-mails etc.

Yeah because like emails, they should be private so i guess people around us must have the courtesy to stay away when we're doing things using our computer. There are things not meant for them to read.

Yes that really would annoy me. I didnt have much choice about it though because when my ex and I were living together this room was my computer room/his game room. We had to share the room so it was obvious we would see what was on each others screens. I didnt really worry about it. I would hate going to a public library and having to use the computers where everyone can see what I am viewing.

It's not so much that I hate anyone looking at my monitor but I hate having anyone look over my shoulder. If they are close enough to look at my monitor they are standing in my personal space and that makes me uncomfortable.
