Instagram notifies you when someone takes screenshot of your Story

Application developers are not misleading the purpose of creating this function

The days of quietly lurking on someone's Instagram may be numbered, as the app begins testing a feature that would let you know if somebody has screenshotted your story.

Instagram is testing a feature that shows you which people take screenshots of your Stories.

Some Instagram users took to Twitter to report that they are now able to see who has been snapping screenshots of their stories. Further, users who are participating in the test are said to be able see who took a screenshot of their story. You will not get an alert with each screenshot when you're the creator, but you will see that people took screenshots when looking at your viewer list.

The feature is not now live, but could be soon. Recently, Instagram launched a new feature on its platform known as Instagram Stories. There were no notifications upon taking screenshot of photo or story.

Instagram confirmed last month that it was testing the tool. The message is clear: users want to Insta-stalk their friends, family, and followers in peace.

Iran denies Israeli 'lies', says Syria acting in 'self- defence'
An Israeli Apache helicopter was able to, after detecting it "early on" and placing it under surveillance, said the IDF. As a result, I can say that the Israeli aircraft was attacked by direct fire from the southern Syrian area.

It's hard to tell how much effect this feature will have on the behaviour of Instagram users.

This is still in a limited release right now, and is in addition to Instagram's screenshot notifications for private direct messages.

Just think about the amount of times you have been sent or have taken a screenshot of someone's Instagram story.

Instagram is slowly rolling-out the new functionality to users worldwide. If all else fails, there's always a last resort: use an app called Story Reposter to get a hold of Instagram Stories and even share them to other social networks. Kind of like taking your Snappy Snaps prints to a shredder when you tire of them.
