Instagram is testing alerts for when someone screenshots your story

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

Now Instagram has actually launched this feature.

It is to be noted that the one who takes a screenshot will be warned through an alert, but the one who is the original publisher will not be shown any alert, and the only way to see who has taken a screenshot is by tapping on the viewers' list and looking for the shutter logo.

Instagram is testing a feature that shows when someone has taken a screenshot of your Story, TechCrunch reported. The Star shaped icon is visible with the name of a person who screenshot your story in handler bar. "Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see", the warning message will read. The new feature appears to be aimed at curbing the spread of cyberstalking, and ensure better privacy for users.

Instagram acknowledged the test and said it is always working on ways to improve the platform.

While this feature seems to be helfpul for the creator to keep track of who snapped their story's screenshot, those who take the screenshots might likely have an escape route.

Prior to this test the only screenshot notifications on Instagram were when someone took a screenshot of a private direct message. Notably, users can rewatch stories as many times as they want within 24 hours, with the creator unable to see exactly how many times one person watched it. Putting the phone in airplane mode before taking the screenshot may not trigger Instagram's new warning. Apart from the normal users, Instagram is popular because of the fact that it has been used by popular celebrities worldwide as well which makes it a go-to platform in order to follow the celebrities and see the photos and videos from their life.
