Does anybody know of an app that will allow our rooted Pixels and Pixel XLs to capture any screen - including ones like bank app screens, pharmacy app screens, etc.? I think I had this on my HTC 10, but maybe it was accomplished via XPosed. Thanks!

Yep. One of my recent phones had development for an app that would capture anything. Pharmacies, credit cards, banks, etc. won't work with the normal process.

I would never take this risk.. if you allow and app to take screenshots of sensitive apps the can virtually steal all your information as your giving it overlay permissions. There is a reason why is not allowed. And I wouldn't recommend you use a third party app and give them the power to look over all your sensitive information..

I understand the risk. I'm not talking about doing this on a daily basis. It's just handy NOT to have the limitation. It has been done, and I think I used it on my HTC 10. Maybe it was via Xposed like I said earlier. What's the likelihood we can do Xposed on the Pixels soon?

Well if you can't remember what it was I'd research it first.
It will be awhile for Xposed to be updated for this device so don't count on it.
