AnsweredDoes BeReal Notify If I Take A Screenshot?

I want to screen record and take screenshots of someone's post on Bereal sometimes, but I am afraid that it will notify the owner. That would be so embarrassing. Can any one tell me whether Bereal will notify others when I screen record or take a screenshot? I really need help!

The answer is YES. BeReal will notify screenshots or screen recordings! 

Like many other social apps, such as Snapchat, BeReal will track people who screen record or take screenshots of your photo and then notify you. However, differing from other apps that send you a full banner notification, BeReal (iPhone) shows a small number with a box that appears next to the details of your photo that was taken a screenshot of. The numbers show how many people have taken screenshots of this post.

If you use BeReal on an Android device, a yellow shutter icon will be next to your photo. This feature is available to all users by default and cannot be switched on or off within any settings.

If you want to screen record or take screenshots on BeReal without any notification, you need to avoid the built-in screen capture tools. And you can choose third-party tools to complete the task, as BeReal cannot detect third-party screen recorders or screenshot programs. For desktop users, EaseUS RecExperts is worth trying.

This software is compatible with both Windows and macOS devices, and performs perfectly in screen recording and snapshots. Using this tool, you can take screenshots on BeReal easily and quickly without any notification. Besides, it is also suitable for other social apps. 

To conclude, BeReal will notify screenshots. If you want to avoid that, you can use a third-party tool to take screenshots.
