    Hi All,

    Are there any methods to block the camera? I will like to write an application to block the camera when the phone enters a premise. Example when the user enters a room whereby he/she cannot take any pictures of the exhibit.

    Any advice is welcome!

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Short answer, no. At least, you couldn't do it without the phone-owner's consent, and they would have to download an app and install it on their phone. It's not possible to do it remotely

    Thanks. My scenario consists of the user installing the apps. What are the methods to control the camera?
