However, our smartphone cameras are programmed by default to make a shutter sound whenever we take pictures. You might want to turn this off on your smartphone. On some phones, it is as simple as dialing down your notification volume, or putting your phone on silent mode. However, it might not be so simple in some other phones. Here’s how to turn off shutter sound on various smartphones. Note that this is illegal in some countries, so be mindful of that.
