What is Tobii Aware?

Tobii Aware is a set of smart features that enable users to increase their privacy, security, productivity, and wellbeing.

Our software is developed to detect real-time user presence and attention to understand human intent and anticipate the user’s needs. It can be integrated into a wide range of personal computing products by making use of the built-in RGB webcam. It is an important part of Tobii’s mission to improve the world with technology that understands human attention and intent.

Your device just got even smarter with Tobii Aware.

Privacy and security features


Privacy screen with Continuous ID

The contents of the screen are blurred when the user looks or steps away, and un-blurred only for the correct user.

Demonstration tip – Look away from the screen while explaining the feature allowing them to see the responsiveness of the user identification. Why not have them try to access the PC?



Enhance privacy and security by automatically locking the screen shortly after the user leaves. 

Demonstration tip – Move away from the screen during the demonstration to show how Aware locks the device.


'Peeker' detection

This feature uses subtle visual clues to let you know when someone behind you is looking at your screen. Aware also offers automatic or reaction-based privacy screen blur to protect the information in situations that require a high level of privacy.

Demonstration tip – Have your customer interact with the computer while you peek over their shoulder.

Productivity and wellbeing features


Stay awake

No need to worry about your device dimming or going to sleep when you aren’t active. Keep your computer awake as long as you are there. 


Dim screen

Improve power efficiency in a natural and unobtrusive way. Your screen brightness will dim and undim when you step away and come back.
Demonstration tip – Move back from the screen during usage to show the power efficiency settings in action.


Windows Snap

Make your life easier by snapping your selected window between screens based on your attention.


Warp mouse pointer

Lower your mouse mileage by having your pointer warp to the screen you’re looking at. This helps you easily find your cursor wherever you left it.
Demonstration tip – Connect a second screen with ‘extended view’ in order to demonstrate this feature.


Digital wellbeing insights

Measure daily usage and track habits such as screen time, user position, distance to screen, and break times to provide insights and healthy reminders.
