Instagram Now Alerts People If You Screenshot Their Story


Instagram is testing a new feature that alerts users when someone takes a screenshot of their story post.

So if one of your followers/friend decided to screenshot any of your Story posts, then you will be notified. Users will be able to see who took a screenshot in their list of story viewers.

Below is a preview of the feature. As explained by TechCrunch;

“Users who are participating in the test can see who took a screenshot of their story by going to the list of story viewers and seeing a new camera shutter logo next to anyone who took a screenshot of their photo. To be clear, creators won’t get a specific notification when someone takes a screenshot of their story, it will only show up in their list of story viewers.”

Thankfully, Instagram will give users one free pass – the first time they screenshot a Story they will receive a pop-up that lets them know that next time the user will be notified.
