Secure Messaging App Confide Unveils Feature to Prevent Screenshots

January 10, 2018

Secure messaging app Confide is gaining an important new feature that stops users from taking any type of screenshot or covertly recording the screen using other known options.

In a blog post, Confide explains more about ScreenShield:

ScreenShield is a patent-pending technology that allows you to view an app’s content on your screen but prevents you from taking a screenshot of it. If you try to take a screenshot on Confide, you will now simply capture a blank screen¹. ScreenShield also protects against other forms of screen capture, including iOS 11 screen recording, AirPlay screen mirroring, QuickTime screen recording as well as taking screenshots from the app switcher or by using Xcode.

Along with adding the technology to its app, Confide is offering the feature to other app developers to use. More information about ScreenShieldKit is available on its official site.

Confide is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
