    “We know that sharing a message, a photo to a friend, can sometimes be tempting on a dating app, but this new screenshot blocking feature aims to encourage honesty and safety. exchanges between users”, specifies Stéphanie Gabriel, director of Badoo Spain.


    Concretely, Android smartphone users will no longer be able to take screenshots of their conversations, while an awareness message will be displayed on smartphones. Badoo specifies that the total blocking was not possible on iOS and that it is not the fact of Badoo, but of Apple.


    The awareness message is also displayed when the user tries to take a video screenshot.
