    A popular Android app that records mobile screen data could be either extremely valuable, or extremely dangerous.

    Sometimes the Snapchats that friends and family members share are worth saving, but one of Snapchat’s most valued features is its single-view limit on shared pictures and videos.

    The AZ Screen Recorder – No Root for Android, however, is a mobile screen recorder that does not have a time limit or a watermark. It is ad-free and extremely easy to use. All you have to do is press the stop or play button and you’re ready to go.

    It is the only screencast app in the Android market that can be paused and resumed while recording. The app also allows audio recording from the phone’s mic that automatically transfuses the audio with the video being recorded.

    While the app is meant for creative purposes such as recording promotional videos, gameplay demonstrations and creating tutorials, the app also lets users record video chats, which could be dangerous for some Snapchat users.

    Many Snapchat users take advantage of the fact that Snapchat only allows videos or pictures to be shared for a single view, but this app allows all Android users to record Snapchats without the other party’s knowledge.

    For years, Apple has banned recording apps such as the AZ Screen Recorder. So if most of your friends have an iPhone, you don’t have to be as cautious, but for those who have Android phones, beware what you Snapchat because your videos may not be as private as you think.
