Providing privacy from external viewers in a room is usually a desire of many. People employ many ways to ensure that the privacy is maintained.

There are usually two ways in which the privacy window films are made to ensure privacy. First, the glass surface may be made to look frosty. The frosty surface gives a person looking into the room blurred images which do not make much sense. The second way is by placing reflective material on the outer part of the room so that when a person looks into the private room or area, all he or she will see shall be a reflection of them.
