I want to be able to record with my kindle fire hdx camera with the screen on standby or not revealing, so I can secretly record.

Anyone know any possible methods? It seems to turn off recording when I press power button.

If he's that ignorant other people already know. Why record him?

We can all see by that comment that your brother probably has a reason to want to record you without your knowledge, too.

Why not cover the screen with duct tape? That'd work!

As a matter of fact, it is illegal. You may want to reconsider, especially now that you've made it public.

It depends on what state you live in. Arizona it is completely legal as long as one party knows about it.

You know as well as I do the government can pretty much do what they want.

It was a garbage topic to begin with.

You, on the other hand, with a blank profile and no history, .....

Even if you could turn off the screen, you'd have to hold the Fire up in his face to record him. Even he might notice that. If you just want audio of him, there are other devices to use.

Secretly recording people is illegal...especially if the camera also records sound. It is a Federal offense, and not worth the minor thrill you'll get from it.

Creeeeeper.

Show us the statute honey. You always seem to give out wrong information.

Since this topic has already devolved this far.... The laws on recording (both audio and video) do vary from state to state. You can't say one or the other is illegal for everyone. MN for example is a one-party state and as such you can record the audio of a conversation without telling the other person/people as long as you are a party to the conversation. That goes for both in person and on the phone. You can't however record a conversation you are not part of. In some states recording audio gets tricky due to old wire tapping laws. I wish I would have known this in high school. I had a teacher that used to set up a small tape recorder on his desk and then leave the room during class trying to record what students said about him when he left the room.
