    Sample for Screen Capture Allow List


    • The name has to be mandatorily filled. At the same time, the publisher and signature aren’t mandatory. However, It’s recommended to add the relevantpublisher and signature to ensure that only the allow listed app can take the screenshots.
    • Without publisher and signature values, a malicious application with the same name can capture screenshots.
    • Also, you can add multiple apps to the Screen Capture Allow-list by adding multiple entries in this block.
