#1 Updated by Soren Stoutner 9 months ago

  • Subject changed from Setting to disable screenshots to Setting to disable screen capture
  • Description updated (diff)

#3 Updated by Soren Stoutner 9 months ago

Should be specified before `setContentView()` to prevent screenshots in the recent list.

#4 Updated by Soren Stoutner 7 months ago

  • Priority changed from 3.x to Next Release

Bumped up due to user request. Also, it should be easy to implement.

#5 Updated by Soren Stoutner 7 months ago

I have changed my mind about the default. I think screenshots should be disabled by default (the most secure option).

#6 Updated by Soren Stoutner 7 months ago

Completely mitigating this issue would require invasive overwriting of code, and even then would not disable video recording of the keyboard, which is much more sensitive then the spinners and menus.

When the screenshot setting is disabled, screenshots are not allowed if any part of Privacy Browser is showing. Videos also show black except for the options menu, spinners, and the keyboard.

Implemented in commit https://git.stoutner.com/?p=PrivacyBrowser.git;a=commitdiff;h=0a5d2eabceeafb49a957598538aa74d4f11dfce0.
