What Parents Need to Know About Screengrabs

Published 16th September 2020

A free online safety guide on screengrabs.

Phones, tablets, and computers all have a feature that allows you to instantly capture and save still images of the content that’s currently displayed on your screen. These images are called screengrabs, though you may also know them as ‘screenshots’ or ‘screencaps’. Screengrabs are incredibly useful for countless reasons. They can let you quickly save a copy of information you might easily forget, like instructions or a number, email address or article, capture a funny sill from a video clip, and even get around Twitter’s 280-character limit for tweets.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as privacy breaches, fraud and reputational damage.
