Two Google engineers have found a way to catch people peeping at your phone with a new program

Ever get that creeping sensation that someone’s looking over your shoulder? Google engineers Hee Jung Ryu and Florian Schroff have devised a way to let you know who’s sneaking a peek at your screen. Their AI software monitors the room constantly through the front facing camera, and whenever it detects someone behind you, it stops whatever program is currently running to show you the guilty party.

While this is interesting use of a phone’s front-facing camera, it could get annoying for commuters in tight spaces to have their games or messaging programs stop every time a person happens to glance in your general direction. The software will be presented at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference in Long Beach, California.

Watch the demo for this software below:
