You will need a filter or use dark black sunglasses & put them over your lens.

@cawbugs As the others have said, to prevent damage to your phone's camera you will definitely need a solar filter to place over your phone's camera. 

I bought one of these. It allows you to protect your phone's camera and your eyes at the same time.  Screenshot 2024-04-08 at 11.18.11.png

I just tried taking a picture of the sun with a pair of eclipse glasses over the camera lenses, and it wouldn't take pics. I could video, though. I have an S22. I'm in the full totality path. . It starts at 12:45 and totality starts at 2:01 p.m. We get 4 minutes and 3 seconds of full totality.

What am I doing wrong to not capture a picture?
