Enable screen blackout in Incognito mode

By default, the Chrome and Firefox web browser apps don't allow the nudity detection feature to monitor the screen when Incognito (or private browsing) mode is opened. The nudity detection feature is designed to block the screen for a short period of time if inappropriate content is deteced in social media apps, although this feature can be used with any app, including browsers. No matter what browser you use, the normal protection experience will still work in Incognito (or private browsing) mode, even if you don't change these settings or use this feature.

Samsung Internet doesn't support our nudity detection feature in Secret mode.

The following steps will show you how to fix this issue:

Change Chrome flag settings

Open the Chrome app, then open chrome://flags in the address bar. Once you've done this, tap the "Search flags" bar.

Search for "Incognito screenshot", then tap its drop-down box.

Tap the Enabled option.

Tap the Relaunch button

The nudity detection feature should now work correctly in Incognito mode. If there are any other web browser apps on this device, you might like to check their corresponding flag settings too.

Change Firefox private browsing settings

Open the Firefox app, then tap the three-dot icon on the right side of the toolbar.

Tap the Settings menu.

Tap the "Private browsing" menu.

Turn on the switch for "Enable screenshots in private browsing".
