The developers of the Confide messaging client have created a development kit that can become a whisperer’s worst nightmare. Named Screenshield , this SDK allows iOS programmers to prevent users from taking screenshots of an application .

The consequence you are probably thinking about is precisely what will happen: if at any point you want to share the screenshot of a conversation with someone, you will see a blank screen instead of that conversation . And yes, it is also the same if you try to record a video from that interface with the new iOS 11 tool.

In fact, the SDK even covers the possibility of trying to record video from the iOS interface using a Mac with QuickTime. The conversation won’t come up in that case either. iOS has a way to block user screenshots, but it can only be used in applications that display streaming video such as Netflix and the like.

Therefore, and if adopted by the messaging applications, Screenshield could be the end of the screenshots of the conversations. At least in a direct way, because we will always have the “botched” way of taking a picture of the iPhone while it shows that conversation using another camera.
