Why can’t I turn off the camera shutter sound?

We need to make sure we always comply with local laws and regulations. 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.
