How often is a screenshot taken? Is it triggered by a sexual image? Or just taken randomly?

Good morning, Katie. That's a good question. Screenshots are taken 'randomly' approximately once per minute, but that interval is somewhat randomized to prevent it from being predictable. Each screenshot is analyzed by the software on the device for explicit/sexual imagery. Then, to ensure privacy protection it's blurred (random white noise added, random pixelation added, and then blurr added) while still on the device so that no unblurred images ever leave your device. 

Does that answer your question?
