Here is the simple and brief guide on How to turn off camera shutter sound on Android device.

Mostly, the device sound profile will override camera shutter sound options by default. Therefore, silent profile activated devices won’t make any noise during shutter. But if your device doesn’t do the same, you can always use a third-party app called No Sound Camera. It’s a free app and can be downloaded via the Google Play Store.
Whereas, the Stock Android devices don’t have a camera shutter sound option. You can simply turn on/off the camera shutter sound via volume buttons with general or silent mode. The do not disturb or vibration mode will also come in handy.
The Samsung Galaxy devices such as Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, or Galaxy S10 models offers you to change the profile volume settings and the camera shutter sound will turn off when the phone is in silent/vibrate mode.

Just open the stock camera app and go to the camera settings then you will find shutter sound on/off the option to turn it on/off easily.
