Taking a screenshot of the smartphone screen is not at all difficult. You just need to hold a couple of buttons. But this does not always work. For example, in the Tor browser or the Incognito mode of any other browser, even if you try to record a video, you usually get only a black screen. The same applies to banking applications (if you, for example, need to fix the transaction made). However, this inconvenience can be easily circumvented. And now you will learn how to do it.
Of course, the easiest (but not always affordable) way is to take another smartphone and take a picture of the screen of your device. But this is a very strange approach. So let’s understand how to take a screenshot in applications that prohibit it, having only one smartphone.
Screenshot using Google Assistant
This may be the easiest way to take a screenshot, and most likely it works at the moment in most applications. All you need to do is enable certain items in the settings of Google Assistant.
When you call the assistant, click on the icon with the image of the compass in the lower right corner.
In the opened window you are interested in the icon of your profile, after clicking on which in the drop-down menu you need to select the “Settings” item.
On the settings page, click on Assistant tab. At the bottom of the tab, you’ll see devices connected to Google Assistant. Choose your smartphone from the list.
On this page you need to go to the “General” section. And after that activate the top two options. This will allow Google Voice Assistant to take screenshots thanks to an analysis of what is happening on the screen of your device.
Now go to the application that prohibits taking screenshots, call the Assistant and select the item “What’s on the screen?”. The program will analyze the contents of your page, the field of which will need to click on the “Share” button. Google Assistant will take a screenshot and give you a pop-up window in which you can transfer the screenshot to various applications. You can immediately send it to someone who needs or save it on your gadget.
Screenshot using a third-party application
If for some reason the above method does not suit you (or it does not work on your smartphone), you can always try installing a third-party application. One of these is, for example, AZ Screen Recorder, etc. It allows you to capture what is happening on the screen without additional settings immediately after installation.
