Introducing ScreenShield – iOS Screenshot-Prevention for Confide, and Beyond (getconfide.com)

On another note, I think I should also mention that using Confide instead of say Snapchat implies you have a weaker trust in whoever you are sharing your secrets with. If you cannot even tell your recipient not to take a screenshot and expect them to keep the promise, how can you trust them not to leak whatever you are telling them through old-fashioned memorization-and-paraphrase?

Here’s an explanation from Daring Fireball about how this is done: apparently through the DRM that’s built into the system! https://daringfireball.net/2018/01/screenshield

I wouldn’t usually trust DF for technical content so I’d love it if we can have a technical writeup.
