Option to support screenshots in private browsing

I use private browsing on Android constantly to access various sites. I mostly appreciate having the extra privacy features, but on occasion, I have a reason to take a screenshot of something on screen. However, currently, such attempts only give me “Can’t take screenshot due to security policy.” This is largely fair and desired behavior, but is there any way that Brave could instead be updated to prompt to allow a screenshot instead, perhaps as a setting under my privacy settings? (Note that I’m aware this may not be viable, as I’m not sure how much of this is something Brave can control vs. something that’s a feature of my phone’s OS.)

Thanks for the request. We’ve an issue logged and tracked here https://github.com/brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/592
