Ways to Disable Screen Recording on iPhone and iPad
To disable screen recording on your iPhone and iPad, two solutions are available. In order to prevent unauthorized recording, you can block screen recording from the Control Center or disable recording in apps.
Block Screen Recording from Control Center
To avoid unauthorized screen recording on your iPhone and iPad, you can limit access to the control center. Here are the steps to follow:
- Go to “Settings”.
- Scroll down and click on “Control Center”.
- Press “Customize Controls.”
- Select the red minus symbol beside “Screen Recording” to remove it from the control center.
- If you want to add restrictions to screen recording, go back to “Control Center” in settings, select “Access within Apps,” and switch off access to “”Screen Recording.”
Additionally, you can prevent all apps from using your device’s camera or microphone by navigating “Privacy” under settings.
If you’re still facing issues with unauthorized screen recording or have experienced privacy breaches due to this vulnerability, reach out for legal assistance without delay.

Disable Screen Recording in Apps
One way to prevent screen recording in apps on iPhones and iPads is to turn off the Screen Recording feature. To achieve this, follow these steps:
- Go to “Settings” on your device.
- Select “Control Centre”.
- Tap on “Customise Controls”.
- Locate “Screen Recording” and tap the (-) icon.
- The Screen Recording option will now be removed from Control Centre, effectively disabling the feature in apps.
It’s essential to note that this method only works for devices running iOS 12 or later. If you’re using an earlier version, it may not work.
While disabling screen recording in apps can help protect sensitive information from being recorded, it’s not foolproof. Users can still take screenshots of your content with ease. Therefore, being cautious about sharing sensitive data remains essential.
To further protect your privacy from prying eyes, use strong passwords, install antivirus software, avoid public Wi-Fi hotspots when transmitting sensitive data like banking credentials or other private information.
