Hide "Your screen is being observed"

Hi all!

We're trying to hide the "Your screen is being observed" message on the lock screen while using ARD to observe student MacBooks during class.

9722ffe13ff343e1a5c8651a78358f4b

We've tried the command below, but it doesn't affect the lock screen:

/System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -config -clientopts -setmenuextra -menuextra no

Is it possible to hide this?

@SuperDuperRob i dont think you can hide that, apple introduced it as a security feature in big sur. You get the same thing if you use display link drivers to output to a monitor

@SCCM Dang, but understandable. Catalina and below seems to only show binoculars on the lock screen which we would also like to hide, but it looks like that won't be possible either. Appreciate your response! πŸ™‚

@Alert Unfortunately, that doesn't work on our end either. Thanks anyway!
