    Everything is normal. There aren't actually screenshots in my gallery but the screen does the screenshot flash thing. It's weird.

    I have a Galaxy Note 9, US edition and current Android operating system, having the same behavior where the screen pinches and I get a beep sound just as though a screenshot is being taken, but no screenshot is found in the screenshot folder, this is very concerning since taking a screenshot is a type of monitoring and it raises the concern that my phone has been hacked

    So you see the screen taking a screenshot on its own but doesn't download it?

    I have noticed this ever since my phone updated a couple weeks ago. S8 Plus on new android 9. This is very suspicious behavior and being the IT guy I am I dug through my phone settings. All camera access to apps is set to denied, no motion gestures enabled either. I have this happening almost every time I unlock my device.

    Here is my concern. There are many people experiencing this same problem and it is unlikely a coincidence. It is more likely something Google has added this as a hidden feature in android 9 or a new feature in 9 that is causing a Samsung app to misbehave. This seems very nefarious to me and I think anyone having this problem should be very concerned, these tech companies have a track record of stealing data from people and using it for their own benefit. It is very likely that this was supposed to be a hidden feature and it is not working as they intended, lucky for us or we may have never known this was happening.

    Talk to your friends and tell them to get on here and post if they are having the same problem. Alone we are nothing to these companies, together we are a voice that cannot be ignored.
    It happens to me when I open Verizon messaging app and OfferUp. I first noticed it after downloading OfferUp, but doubted myself after checking and seeing all permissions were still denied. Now it says "could not capture screenshot due to low memory", and I know I was right. The strange part is that I can't find these screenshots anywhere on my phone. It would make sense that the file would be full, as I've had this phone for over two years now. It doesn't make sense that I can't find any evidence of these photos in even the dark corners of my phone.

    Which phone do you have? Have you tried uninstalling Offer Up?

    Do you have swipe palm to take screenshot? Could it be detecting that when you pick it up or put it down?
