Is there a way to disable screenshots, and/or is there a specific permission needed to do so? I am developing an Android app involving decryption and I would like to restrict the user from taking screenshots.

getWindow().setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SECURE, WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SECURE);

Open in new window
