Secure screen setting in Cryptomator for Android



Android provides the possibility, to prevent the system and other apps from doing screen shots, screen recording etc while Cryptomator is active. This feature is very important because it prevents other apps from reading data across the screen.

This feature is enabled for all our views. For some devices e.g. a Chromebook with a second display or to create a screenshot and disable it again, we made this option since the 1.3.9 configurable. The screen is secured by default but under Settings --> Screen security, it is possible to disable or reactivate this feature.
