This $10 App Can Save You From Screen Sharing Embarrassment

Having to share your computer screen during a video meeting or presentation can be nerve-racking. And it usually isn’t concern over the information you’re sharing that leads to all that anxiety. It’s actually the fear of the stuff you really don’t want to share that spikes your worry.

What if an inadvertent text message from your husband or wife pops up? What if your funny notification sound or your goofy desktop image flashes across the screen for your audience to see? Or what if there are browser items or programs running on your computer that you’d really rather your boss, co-workers, and other business associates never know anything about?

You could go through your computer step by step, disabling or changing any potentially embarrassing distraction one by one. Or if you’re a Mac user, you can just let PliimPRO ($9.99, 37 percent off) handle the whole thing.

PliimPRO was designed with just one basic task in mind — to make your entire system presentation-ready and available for use with a single button press.

When all eyes are on you and you’re ready to go into Presentation Mode, turning on PliimPRO effectively sanitizes the view anyone sees of your computer.

With a touch, all your desktop icons disappear. Notifications get temporarily turned off. Your taskbar no longer displays any running programs and no unexpected screens will pop up when you least expect them. PliimPRO will also mute your speakers to avoid any noises you don’t want others to hear and will even put up a completely neutral desktop image. And you won’t have to fear about what meeting participants will see except the contents of your presentation.

During any video meeting, PliimPRO also gives you the ability to mute your mic, either through a dedicated icon on your touch bar or through another customized shortcut. That keeps you from having to hunt down the particular meeting tab and mute the mic that way rather than this simplified method.

Because PliimPRO runs at the operating system level, it’s completely compatible with all the biggest video conferencing software, including everything from Zoom and Skype to Microsoft Teams and Cisco Webex and beyond. PliimPRO has also been tested within an inch of its life and came through with flying colors, running up to 300 times faster than other versions built with web-based tech.

Regularly $16, you can get PliimPRO protection for almost 40 percent off at only $9.99.
