  • Android 15’s latest beta includes a new Developer Options toggle called “disable screen share protections,” which is tied to a new feature internally called “sensitive content protection.”
  • This feature could allow apps to block specific fields from ending up in screen recordings or screen shares.
  • With this feature, apps that display sensitive information only occasionally can selectively block those fields from appearing in screen shares and recordings.

Android 15 is shaping up to be a subtle change on the surface but a substantial upgrade when you peek under the hood. Another change that could come to Android 15 is how apps can selectively hide sensitive content when you are screen sharing.

As Android Police reports, Android 15 Beta 1.1 has a new Developer Options toggle named “disable screen share protections.” This toggle disables the system-applied app and notifications protections during screen sharing. Reportedly, the visibility of this toggle is controlled by flags related to a feature known internally as “sensitive content protection.”
