ScreenWings
Stop software capturing your screen

ScreenWings is a tiny portable tool which attempts to stop malicious software (or anything else, really) from capturing your screen.

The program is a single executable, under 1MB in size. There's no installation, no drivers or services involved, just run it and you're ready to go.

The interface is equally basic: a small grey dialog with a single icon of a screen (if you have more monitors, you'll get an icon for each one).

To disable screen capture, click the Windows logo so that the screen goes black.

Click the arrow icon in the title bar to minimise the window to the system tray.

Double-click the ScreenWings system tray icon to restore the program.

Click the black screen to enable screen capture again.

In our first tests, ScreenWings worked well. Whatever screen capture route we tried just delivered the same all-black image. Unfortunately this also applied to regular PrtSc and Alt+PrtSc actions, so if you do that a lot you'll have to turn ScreenWings off first, and back on afterwards-- potentially a real hassle.

Changelog

Verdict:

Preventing malicious software capturing your screen sounds good to us. Blocking PrtSc and Alt+PrtSc as well? Not so much.

Despite that, there could still be a case for using ScreenWings when you're working on someone else's system. It's portable, super-easy to use, and seems to work as advertised. Add a copy to your security toolkit.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
