Although users can take screenshots of photos and videos sent with that View Once mode and WhatsApp has not introduced the detection feature about it.

Users should use the feature properly
WhatsApp wants users to use this feature properly and not get trapped in any bad situation. According to WABetaInfo, screenshot notifications can be spoofed in Android WhatsApp using different apps or other methods and the sender of the message will not know that his video or photo will be recorded. When a user feels that the screenshot is blocked or notified, he can send something private with the assurance that these media files will not be shared with third parties. But the person receiving it can click the photo from another phone.
WhatsApp will introduce a new way to detect fake apps
WABetaInfo wrote that WhatsApp may find some more ways to block such dangerous apps. But those people who are getting the message need to be alert. Instead of introducing the screenshot detection feature, WhatsApp is asking its users to be more careful.
