This might not be a "bad security practice" but rather a fear of mine. I'm always wondering how people can work at coffee shops or other public places. I couldn't possibly be productive in an environment where random people hang out behind my back. At least I would have to attach a laptop screen guard, put on noise-canceling headphones and back off into a corner back to wall to be comfortable.
