    I have something taking screenshots of my phone constantly while i am using it. It has to be an app I use because i just got a new phone and it started after installing apps. Does anyone else have this happening to them? Does anyone else know what apps if any may be doing it? And does anyone know of anyway to block it from happening?

    Most searches on the internet only talk about taking screenshots as I cannot find an answer thst helps.

    Please help.

    Welcome to AF!

    If it is an app, you might be able to find it by putting your device into safe-mode and running your installed apps one at a time to see which one was last started before you see/experience this behavior.

    It would also be interesting to know what apps you've got installed--it's hard for us know speculate without more information.

    Doing a factory reset will certainly remove the offending app--along with all of your other apps and their settings, though--so be aware of that.

    Let us know!
