    Simply flip the lock switch down. It mutes the phone and silences the shutter sound.

    I read somewhere a couple years back that in Japan they have such an epidemic of upskirt/perv pics being taken that they had to make it to where ALL cameras on phones can't be silenced. Wonder if that's true lol

    Yeah, don't let things like technology prevent you from acting like an idiot, invading others privacy and breaking the law.
