screen recording

I'm running CovenantEyes on my Samsung Galaxy s10e with ScreenAccountability enabled, and I'm finding that I cannot create video recordings on my screen. In particular, I occasionally like to record my gameplay, and I'm finding that when I playback my recording, it's stuck on the dialog box asking permission to record my screen (initiated by CovenantEyes). Is there a way around this?

Hi Cy Shimizu,
     Thanks for posting in this forum! The Covenant Eyes Screen Accountability Android app utilizes the device's "Screen Casting" feature to capture screenshots of your device. Since Covenant Eyes is dedicated to monitoring your device at all times, our app always utilizes the Screen Casting feature. However, Android only allows one application to use the Screen Casting feature at a time. This is why you're experiencing a constant pop-up from Covenant Eyes asking to record your screen when you're attempting to use screen recording for another purpose. 

Best,

Syd
