Instagram tests screenshot notification feature

Instagram now ALERTS people when YOU take a screenshot, just like SnapChat

Snapchat already notifies users when someone screenshots their story, and the only type of user who might find this feature distressing is the user trying to inconspicuously creep.

Users whose stories have been captured will not get a notification but only see the icon in the list of story viewers.

The feature is not now live, but could be soon. Not everyone has reacted to this new test feature just yet; but it looks like it will be business as usual for Instagram.

Instagram now ALERTS people when YOU take a screenshot, just like SnapChat
Instagram notifies you when someone takes screenshot of your Story

Instagram is set to release a new feature that allows users know when a friend or anyone is taking screenshots or screen recording of their InstaStory. You may want to stop doing that soon as the social network is bringing in notifications for when your story has been snapped. Instagram confirmed the feature with TechCrunch, though not everyone is thrilled with it. Recently, Instagram launched a new feature on its platform known as Instagram Stories. It hasn't been rolled out to all users, but people on Twitter have started to be warned that if they screenshot, the original author will be told they've done it. Both of the features are still rolling out and there's a chance that you might not have got them yet. You could, for example, switch to "airplane" mode on your phone when you take the screenshot...

It's not the first time Instagram has notified users when someone screenshots their photo. That being said, we will let you know once the feature is live for everyone and if there's any flawless workaround to prevent the other person from knowing it. Literally, most of the IG users exploited this technique to save the posted stories, and the creator, of course, will be unknown of the fact.
