Does WSA block screenshots by default?

    I'm remembering that Prevx SafeOnline would pop-up when a screenshot was attempted and ask the user to confirm. WSA does not give a warning, but it also seems to block screenshots (or I'm having a problem with my screen capture software). Can someone clarify how this works in WSA? TIA

    It's more user friendly now - it will identify the cause/intent of the screencapture. You can get that warning back by unchecking Settings - Identity Shield - Allow trusted screen capture programs (the last item).

    Thanks, I'll give that a try.

    Update: I unchecked the option to allow trusted screen capture programs and it still doesn't alert.
