The Big Picture

Improving the Childcare Experience with the Power of Streaming Video

Screenshot and Video Recording Prevention and Detection

We've launched a feature that detects and protects against screenshots and video recording 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 or recordings of video streaming from your school. By adding a feature that detects and protects against screenshots and video recording, 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 prevents recording video. It also 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 recording video, and prevents screenshots of video from being taken within the app.


About Screenshot Prevention & Detection

Is the feature in place for all users?

The feature is live for all users of our latest iOS and Android apps. There is no action required to turn it on.

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

  • iOS and Android users are blocked from recording video.
  • 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 is active for parent users only. Admin users are able to take screenshots.
