Researchers at Google are working on an AI-based feature, called Electronic Screen Protector, which tells sneaky strangers peeking at your phone screen over your shoulder to mind their own business.

The software combines artificial intelligence and facial recognition to spot nosey strangers when they are stealing glances on your messages and alerts you by switching the screen to front camera pointing to the intruder’s face, writes CNET.

The reaction time for the feature is just two milliseconds, which leaves virtually no chance for the trespasser to go unnoticed or rather unanswered, notes The Tech News
