Hi. I am a Note 8 user. I have encounter this issue for a while. Probably a year plus.
Every now and then, the phone would screenshot itself. Not sure why but is it related to Samsung software? 
I really hope my Note 8 is not compromised


Thank you

it is same as the notification when we screenshot. it is shows notification on background and automatically saved in gallery folder.

the thing is i do not think it is because accidentally press button cause sometimes the screenshot occured when the phone was charging (not in beg or pocket)

Have you tried to disable smart capture feature ie palm swipe capture? Possibly it helps.

to access smart capture, go to settings > advance features > motion and gestures
