There are many reasons why you would want to take a screenshot and it is a useful feature without any doubts. But there is a problem that often occurs when users try to take a screenshot. Whenever they try to take a picture, a warning message saying “Unable To Capture Screen, DRM Protected Image”.

No matter what you do, the error will still show up. This occurs because of a security feature that applications have in order to prevent unauthorized users from stealing important information.

This is used by bank apps and users have reported that this happens even when watching YouTube videos.
