Sharing My Screen in Zoom Meetings from my Android phone

For my work and other situations, I need to share my phone's screen in Zoom meetings from time to time. When I hit the screen sharing button, I get the "Exposing sensitive info during casting/recording" popup. I hit "Start Now" to start the screen share. After doing that, the popup reappears, shared with everyone in the Zoom meeting. That's problem enough, but there's more. When I hit "Start Now" again, the share freezes on that popup and the host has to  stop my screen share.

This is embarrassing, and restricts me from doing my job. This isn't the purpose of Covenant Eyes software, so I'm assuming it's not intentional.

Is there something in my settings I can do? Or is there a fix for this?

Hi Andrew,

I posted a similar question a couple of weeks ago, regarding the ability to record my screen. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to share your screen because Covenant Eyes needs to be able to record the screen as part of ScreenAccountability. I don't think this is so much a Covenant Eyes problem as it is a limitation of Android. 

Anyways, sorry for the bad news.
