How to Disable Screenshot Captured Notification and Sound without Root

In this tutorial, we will outline the steps to disable screenshot captured banner notification and sounds on any Android device. The entire steps will be carried out without taking the help of root, i.e. on a non-rooted Android device. Being a tech blogger, I usually end up taking more screenshots than a normal everyday user. Well, I always believe in the idea of the picture speaking up a thousand words.

The explanation that one could carry out via a screengrab is much more than what is possible via the written words. Apart from that, sometimes I also come across a few sarcastic posts or memes which need a permanent abode in my device’s storage. But rather than long-pressing that image and select the Save option, taking a screenshot of the same is a much easier route.

However, there exists a glaring difficulty in all these. Every time I take a screenshot, my Android device ends up notifying me with a banner notification and a pop-up sound. This not only disturbs me but my immediate surrounding as well. Furthermore, it leads to another irritating situation. If you are about to take more than one screengrab, then you will have to wait for the Screenshot captured notification of the earlier image to disappear.

If you don’t, then your next screenshot will have the screenshot taken notification of the former. This few seconds of wait is something that irritates me to the core. Add to it the constant notification sounds, and it equates to an unpleasant experience. If you also echo these feelings of mine, then you have landed at the right place.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to disable the Screenshot captured notification and sound, on a non-rooted Android device. This is because just for the sake of disabling pop-ups, we don’t think that the user should end up rooting their devices. So here is everything you need to be aware of, with regards to disable the screenshot captured sound and banner notification. Follow along.
