On Android phones and tablets, it is possible to take a screenshot of the screen, as well as record everything that happens on the screen. However, this has certain limitations. Some applications that contain sensitive or confidential data will not allow you to take a screenshot and record the screen, and if you try to do that, what you will get is a black screen on which nothing can be seen. This option is there for security reasons.
When you open the Incognito tab in Chrome and Firefox on Android, taking a screenshot and recording a screen will not be possible and if you try to do this, you will get a black screen. However, both applications have an option that allows you to enable taking a screenshot and record a screen in Incognito mode.
