Instagram tests notification for story screenshot

Instagram tests notification for story screenshot”

But unlike Snapchat, which notifies people when followers take screenshots, Instagram has allowed you to freely screenshot stories without any notifications.

Understandably, this feature is introduced for privacy reasons as there were cases where the screenshots from Instagram Stories were misused by people. Instagram is likely testing how people respond to the new notices and may decide to never rollout the feature to all users, or perhaps change its behavior. Those who post story will not get alert, but it will appear in the list of viewers whether anyone tried to take screengrab.

Whenever users take a screenshot while watching a Story, Instagram will snitch on you by placing a shutter-shaped icon next to your handle. Snapchat has been warning users when others take a screengrab of photos or videos since it launched in 2011.

Just think about the amount of times you have been sent or have taken a screenshot of someone's Instagram story. If you thought this was the end of it then you're wrong.

Instagram confirmed a feature that informs creators when someone screen grabs their Stories.

Both Mac and Windows computers have screenshot functions. One of the biggest things the social site will take into account is how this feature will affect user habits.

The new screenshot tool is also the latest example of Instagram taking a page from Snapchat.

Instagram is slowly rolling-out the new functionality to users worldwide.

Notably, Instagram introduced a similar screenshot feature back in 2016 that provided notification when someone took a screenshot of a private direct message. With the ability to see if somebody screenshotted a public story, well, in the words of one Twitter user: "Creep wisely."
