About this project
The iPhone fundamentally changed humanity. We used to have to go long distances to get our hands on what we needed, but now everything we need is right in the palm of our hands. We can text relatives around the world, collaborate on office documents, and pay our banking bills anytime, anywhere. Our phones hold great power, along with very important, sensitive and meaningful information.
With everything accessible with the click of a button, it's not hard for others to peek into our lives. This is why we've designed the Peek Screen; a highly transparent tempered glass protective cover that brings strength, durability, and privacy to your mobile device. You won't notice it, but others sure will.
When we looked up from our phones during the busy subway commute to work, we noticed that at least three-quarters of the people crowded around us were looking down at their phones. We could see everything they were doing from messaging friends to swiping on dating apps to reading financial briefs for the morning's meetings.
We opened our eyes and realized that people everywhere are looking and reading over others' shoulders. How could we stop people from peeking into our lives?
We researched and found a quick and seemingly perfect solution: the privacy screen. We bought one, then another, and another. Unfortunately, what was out there was not good.
Everyone advertised the same thing, but the actual screens were hard to see through from all angles, thick and chunky when glass, and flimsy and ugly when plastic; essentially, the privacy screen interrupted our iPhone's intended functionality and beautiful design.
There was room for huge improvement, and so we innovated.
We created the Peek Screen because we're avid iOS users, and couldn't find a high-quality protector that did it all – privacy, strength, and elegant design – for the right price.
We love our iPhones not just for the important and meaningful information they hold, but also for their beautifully simple design – so it's important to protect our iPhones, and the information they hold, with something elegant, sleek and strong.
The Peek Screen's polarized film layer keeps your private texts, web browsing, and work emails safe from others' eyes. Keep it vertical for privacy, and turn it sideways to share with friends.
When we looked at other screens, they typically fell around 75% clarity, which means it's sometimes dark and difficult to see your phone even when it's only you and you're looking at it straight on. Our engineering team took a giant step forward to 87% clarity, the best in the market, and such high quality that it only interferes with other people looking at your iPhone.
The Peek Screen is made with eco-friendly 9H Hard tempered glass, which prevents scratches, doesn't crack under pressure, and is ultra responsive to your touch.
We dip our glass into potassium nitrate (KNO3) solution that is heated to 430 degrees Celsius, or almost 810 degrees Fahrenheit, tempering it to ensure that the Peek Screen keeps your iPhone the way it's supposed to be: powerful and beautiful. Plastic protectors do not feel, function, or look the same – the Peek Screen adds a slim 0.3mm of real tempered glass to your iPhone, fully protecting its functionality, without hurting its natural elegant design. The Peek Screen also gets along with phone cases, unlike other tempered glass screens. Put it on for extra protection and style!
Think of the Peek Screen as insurance on your mobile device. Rather than paying $100 or more for getting your actual mobile screen replaced and functional again, the Peek Screen comes away with the damages, leaving your actual phone screen safe and sound, and your wallet happy.
In only 0.3mm, the Peek Screen packs a hell of a punch. Its oleophobic top layer stops oily finger/water smudges and scratches, keeping your iPhone clean and smooth.
The Peek Screen goes easily onto your iPhone and stays there. When we tried out other privacy screens, they were hard to put on our iPhone, left lots of air bubbles, and eventually peeled off.
The Peek Screen uses advanced Nippa OCA, which stands for Optically Clear Adhesive. This high-quality Japanese-made adhesive uses gravity to set in place, which means no air bubbles, and an ultraclear screen that stays on your iPhone for as long as you want it there.
Just because it's well made doesn't mean it has to be expensive. We've left that motto in the dirt, and brought you an affordable well-made product.

Risks and challenges
We’re extremely passionate about the Peek Screen and we’re committed to doing everything in our power to solve any challenges that may arise along the way – that’s a promise!
We have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet our promised deadlines. We have our manufacturing and operations all ready to go, and we've made sure to leave enough time so that all of your Peek Screens will arrive as planned. We are confident that our calculated plan will work effectively once we're funded, and that we'll be putting the Peek Screen in your hands -- and on your phones -- no later than January!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
