ScreenWings is a free anti-screenshot program for the windows operating system that blocks screenshots from being taken properly on devices it is run on.

Malware comes in many different forms: from ransomware that encrypts your files, over trojans that add your devices to a botnet, to outright destructive malware that deletes files without any gain whatsoever.

There is malware that tries to steal information, and in this context specifically information that its operators can turn into money. This includes account data, banking information, credit card data, and any other data that is of value on the darknet.

ScreenWings

ScreenWings is a simple to use portable program for Windows that ships with only two buttons when you launch it. The first, the red x-icon, closes the program. The second, enables its anti-screenshot functionality. The button acts as a toggle for the anti-screenshot functionality that ScreenWings offer.

What this means is that you need to enable it whenever you need it, and may disable it when you don't.

While you can still use the screenshot functionality of Windows or any third-party tool, you will notice that the program blackens the screen entirely once it recognizes a screenshot taking process.

We tried a variety of programs, the snipping tool, print-key, and SnagIt, and the program managed to detect them all properly and protect the screen from being captured. This worked regardless of the selection mode (including fullscreen and auto-saving options).

There is no guarantee obviously that ScreenWings will block any malicious process from capturing the screen but it seems to work well.

The application supports multi-monitor setups which is another bonus.

Closing Words

ScreenWings is a simple program for Windows to block processes from taking screenshots while enabled. Since it is portable, it is probably best used in that context. You may copy it to a USB Flash Drive and run it on Windows PCs that you don't have full control over for that extra bit of security.

It is not really suitable for home use as there are better ways to protect your data from being leaked. This means proper security software for one that blocks malware before it has a chance to run and do harm.

Also, and that is probably the main downside of ScreenWings, it is quite the memory eater. The program used 175 Megabyte while running on a Windows 10 machine.

All in all, this may be an option if you have to work on public PCs or PCs that you don't have full control over.
