The Big Picture

Improving the Childcare Experience with the Power of Streaming Video

Screenshot Prevention and Detection

We've launched a feature that detects and protects against screenshots on the WatchMeGrow app.

The privacy of children in your care is so important. That’s why we have terms of service that prohibit users from taking screenshots of video streaming from your school. By adding a feature that detects and protects against screenshots, we’re doing even more to protect privacy.

Due to the differing capabilities of iOS and Android, the feature works differently between the two mobile platforms. Specifically:

For iOS Users: The new feature detects when a screenshot is taken within the app, and immediately displays a message indicating that screenshots are a violation of our terms of service. Users must click "OK" to resume use of the app.

For Android Users: The new feature prevents screenshots of video from being taken within the app.


About Screenshot Prevention & Detection

Is the feature in place for all users?

Yes, the feature is live for all users. There is no action required to turn it on.

Are users notified with a message that they cannot take a screenshot?

  • Android users are blocked from taking a screenshot.
  • iOS users are presented with a message when they take a screenshot.

Does this work differently for Admin users of the app?

The feature works exactly the same for administrators and parent users.
