    Is there a way to disable the ability to take a screenshot on the iPhone? I read about the iPhone configuration utility but also read that it is obsolete. So anyone know?

    I know about the restriction section, but screenshots are not listed.

    Anyone heard of phonesheriff? They now have a non-jailbroke monitoring service? Concerned that this may be a scam. Anyone used it?

    Thanks

    The only thing I see there is:
    *** All iPhones MUST be jailbroken prior to installing PhoneSheriff. This must be done by the customer before purchasing and installing the software. Please see the Additional Requirements about jailbreaking. ***

    Look about half way down on the right side. It is a red box for the investigator version for non-JB. I would screen shot it, but do not know how.

    It can't be significantly different than something like PhoneView: http://www.ecamm.com/mac/phoneview/

    A non-jailbroken iOS device simply can't run monitoring software in the background, so a solution like PhoneView or any of the other various apps that do similar things are the only way it would work.

    That appears to be Mac only & require usb. Supposedly phone sheriff works by entering your Apple ID. It appears to link to iCloud backup. I am not fond of giving my ID & password to a 3rd party unless it is legit.

    I wouldn't give my iCloud password to any third party. There's no "legit" reason to do so.

    Yes, agreed. I figured others would have the same concern.
