This Knowledge Base article describes the Prevent App Screen Sharing functionality and explains how to add it to a mobile app with a few button clicks.
We hope you find it useful and enjoy using Appdome!
About Prevent App Screen Sharing on Appdome
Appdome is a no-code mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS), supporting a wide variety of implementations for Android and iOS apps.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. The Appdome technology adds Prevent App Screen Sharing and relevant standards, frameworks and more to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.
When Prevent App Screen Sharing is enabled, the fused app behaves in the following manner. In iOS, as there is no active screen sharing preventive mechanism, Appdome will detect that a screenshot was taken or that screen recording or mirroring was started and place a black layer over the app so that it’s content won’t appear, the user will have to kill and restart the app to use it again. In Android the app will continue to function while screenshots will appear with a black overlay and screen recording and mirroring are also blocked by a black overlay, except on secure displays (i.e. Google Chromecast connected via HDMI).
