Can you see through window film?

While you can usually see through window film, the visibility can rely heavily on the lighting inside and outside. For instance, if a building has a tinted or reflective film installed, someone on the outside would not be able to see inside during the day. On the other hand, if you are an occupant of that building, you will be able to see outside through the window film clearly on a sunny day. 

No matter how reflective or dark your tint is, during nighttime hours, if you have the lights on in your home or office, those outside will be able to see directly in due to the light being greater inside than outside.
