6300 4G: phone keeps taking screenshots in my pocket

Whenever I bend over or squat down to reach something, my 6300 4G takes screenshots in my pocket. This is due to the undocumented function of taking screenshots when pressing the [*] and [#] keys at the same time.

  1. Nokia, please document this feature, properly, in the manual.
  2. Is there a way to turn this off?

I've been putting up with it for a while but frankly having to delete dozens of pocket screenshots every time this happens (which is often) is getting to be quite a nuisance

    I also have this issue. I was not aware that you had to press * and #. This also happens when the phone is locked, not a good design.

    Just updated to 20.00.17.01 (KaiOS 2.5.4). Has this been addressed in this update?

    I agree. Screenshot should be disabled while in lock mode. Camera also takes photo when in my pocket. That might be a separate topic. Please disable or allow users to disable screenshot while in lock mode. Thank you,
