Stop screenshots on android devices

Have seen a couple of apps (especially banking apps) that block users from taking screenshots. Is there any way to implement it for the whole device?  We have a couple of android devices enrolled in android enterprises. Don’t want our employees to take screenshot of sensitive business data.

    I had a different requirement (didn’t want my users to play with the power button) and I disabled the power button. Guess it will satisfy ur use case too as they cannot use power button to take screenshot.

    Hello Gable,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    You need not restrict the power button if your only requirement is to restrict users from taking screenshots. We have a restriction exclusively for restricting screenshots under Android > Advanced Restrictions. Apply a policy disabling the option Screen Capture and you are good to go.

    Cheers!!
