Curtain Mode is a Remote Management feature on macOS that blocks or conceals the display on the computer Screens is connected to. It's useful if you don't want the remote user to see what you're doing (e.g. entering a password or editing a sensitive system file).
Things to consider:
- In order to use Curtain Mode, you need to enable Remote Management on the Mac you'll be connecting to instead of Screen Sharing. You will find instructions here.
- Curtain Mode is a feature only available on Macs and is not available on PCs.
This is what people in front of the remote Mac will see (the text is user-customizable).
In Screens, you will see the remote desktop.
You may enable Curtain Mode and customize the displayed text in your saved screen settings, under More Settings.

Note: This feature depends on macOS' native Remote Management service, and so is available only when connecting to a Mac.
Note that Curtain Mode may cancel any On-Disconnect Actions sent to the remote Mac.
