Camera Guard Android blocks my camera app to take photos. How can I solve this problem?

Please close your camera app first, and add the camera app to the whitelist.

The whitelist feature in Camera Guard Android makes sure that a whitelisted app can bypass the camera protection. So, for example, if you set your camera app on the whitelist, you can take photos.

Otherwise, Camera Guard would block the use of your camera.

Even if an app is on the whitelist, the integrated Deep Detective protection module permanently controls which process or app currently attempts to access the camera. Additionally, it reports known – and thanks to modern heuristic methods – also unknown attack attempts.
