How to protect my laptop screen from being hacked? [closed]

Solutons:


No, you are most certainly not the victim of Van Eck phreaking.

You know when you feel a bit sick, and you do some googeling and even though you are not a doctor you are suddenly convinced your sympthoms exactly match those of some obscure form of cancer? Then when you tell your doctor he or she sighs and say, no, your not having cancer. Yeah, that is what is going to happen here.

I understand that it might seem like Van Eck prheaking is the only possible explanation. But in fact there are many more far more likely explanations (listed here from more likely to less likely in my opinion):

  • Your neigbhours do not know what’s on your screen. You just misheard them or misunderstood them, making you believe they know.
  • They found out some completely different way. If they know what you wrote in an email, maybe the person you sent it to told them? Maybe you told them about the word document you were writing, but forgot you did. Maybe you told someone else that told them. Maybe they heard you talk about it through the wall.
  • They have peaked through a window or maybe you left the door open one day or maybe you used the file they have information about on a public computer where they found it.
  • Maybe you are the victim of some other kind of hacking attack. They might have been able to infect your computer with spying software. (And no, that you ran some scans does not mean it isn’t there.) They might be snooping on your WiFi.

I’m not saying any of these explanations are correct. I am sure you can come up with convincing arguments that some of them are not correct. What I am trying to say that there are many, many possible explanations, some of whish you might not even think about, that are far more likely then your neighbours Van Eck phreaking you.

So why not Van Eck phreaking?

  • It would be an insanely complicated method to do something quite simple – to figure out what is on your neighbours computer. Why would anyone pick the hardest tool to use when there are easier alternatives?
  • While Van Eck prheaking has been demonstrated to work, it is seldom practical to use in real situations (that is, “in the wild”).
  • When it works (it doesnt always work) it only works on small distances, and even a thin wall might make it impossible.
  • There is no universal Van Eck mashine that works on all devices. They would need to have something custom made for your laptop model and you phone model.
