Does the person know that I tried to screenshot his profile picture on FB? Answer is Not at all. Its only the facebook app that preventing us to capture screenshot from profile picture which privacy is set to private.
This is not a fix, this is a workaround, it shouldnt be necessary to fill my phone with even more apps to solve previous apps’ uselessness
It now captures a jack screen on the Samsung note 4 🙁
Doesn’t work. I downloaded this app to get around a security issue blocking screenshots from either my note 5 Penn capturing a screenshot or using the home and power button message comes up on screen and says can not capture screen due to security policy this app just shows me a black screenshot with my taskbar icons and time

If a new phone gives the problem unable to take screenshot. Prevented by security policy then the manufacturer has to be preventing this… However if updates causes the problem then it is similar to the new phone… However I had this problem and the effect is caused by the change in resolution/DPI… Installing resolution changers caused that issue on my J7… When I revert to stock resolution, screenshot capture works fine… So if new phones are manufactured with new resolution or policy that changed the resolution then for now reverting to a lower resolution might work till they decide to balance the firmwares of new phones and if not then too bad for us for its limitation or confinement and you pay for it…
Application with prevent does not capture. It just comes as black screen rest all capture. Which phone anyways did.
Use older version of screen touch application. then it will work.
