Suddenly I can't screenshot images I get off the internet - happy birthday images, for example.  Never had a problem before.  It's telling me "Can't take screenshots due to security policy".   Any idea how to fix this?

Check to make sure camera permissions is enabled: open device settings>type "permissions manager" in the search bar>toggle on camera access. If this is already toggled on try clearing your camera app's cache/data: open device settings>apps>camera> storage>clear cache/data>restart phone.

But it's been working perfectly up until a few days ago.  I get the message from such innocuous pages as plant identification and free recipes.

Only time I see messages like that are when I try to screenshot images in things like banking apps. Perhaps the app you are using has a security policy against screenshots.

It does not matter how YOU classify the content, it matters how the content owner classifies the content within the encoding for the web page or app.

No it's a copyright feature which it's best not to mess with
