    This is not a bug...

    The legislation in some countries requires the camera sound not to be turned off. This is to prevent any privacy violations (such as pictures being taken of people without their consent).If your software is up to date and you still can't turn off the camera sound, this is likely due to the privacy regulations in your country.

    For screenshot sounds do this
    Go to
    Scroll to the bottom and
    Disable the option of screenshot sound.

    And for the camera shutter sound read the above comment.

    Try this: Pull your SIM card, restart your phone, and then see if you can take pictures with no shutter sound.

    If that works, it means that silencing the shutter is not allowed in the region/country defined by your SIM. Some places have laws forbidding a silent camera in order to protect people from being photographed without their knowledge.

    After Android Pie 9.0 update Camera shutter sound doesn't turn off even. Tried to turn off by settings in Camera by selecting Shutter sound option - off it's not working.
    Even tried Vibration mode/Silent mode but not turned off camera shutter sound.
