In Windows Phone 8.1 anyone can take a screenshot by pressing the power button and the volume-up key at the same time. A customer was concerned about privacy in their enterprise app and asked me if they could disable this functionality for Windows Phone 8.1 (both WinRT and Silverlight apps). I researched this and found that this could be accomplished with the following code listed below:

For Windows Phone 8.1 Silverlight Apps

public MainPage()
    if (this.CanSetScreenCaptureEnabled())

For Windows Phone 8.1 Runtime Apps
