    expo-screen-capture allows you to protect screens in your app from being captured or recorded, as well as be notified if a screenshot is taken while your app is foregrounded. The two most common reasons you may want to prevent screen capture are:

    • If a screen is displaying sensitive information (password, credit card data, etc.)
    • You are displaying paid content that you don't want recorded and shared

    This is especially important on Android, since the android.media.projection API allows third-party apps to perform screen capture or screen sharing (even if the app is backgrounded).

    Currently, taking screenshots on iOS cannot be prevented. This is due to underlying OS limitations.
