If you hit the Google Play Store today, you’ll find a new update is now available for the BlackBerry Privacy Shade app that brings a whole new feature called BlackBerry Redactor. Using the Redactor function of BlackBerry Privacy Shade will allow you to hide private or sensitive information from your screenshots before sharing them.
- Use new Redactor mode to take a screenshot anywhere on your device and block sensitive content
- Redact content with horizontal swipes, rectangles, and circles
- Share your redacted content seamlessly with your social media and email applications
- Switch quickly between Redactor mode and Privacy Shade mode
Previously, I would always just use a sticker or make terrible looking scribbles to hide info or just edit screenshots in a different app altogether but with this function now being built right in the Privacy Shade app itself, it’s one less thing to worry about or app to download. That’s a win.
