Screenshot An Instagram Story And The User Will Be Notified About It

Love screenshotting your friends’ Instagram Stories? Well, they will be notified about it from now onwards as Facebook-owned Instagram has decided to alter the app a little.

A star-shaped icon will display next to the handle of the user and this is ultimately how it will appear:

Instagram also alerts the screen grabbers with the following message when they take a screenshot:

Interestingly, the aforementioned message will appear only once and Instagram won’t remind about it over and again. If a user miss it for some reason, he won’t be knowing that the other user is being reminded about the screengrabs.

It is worth mentioning that a user could still take screenshots without getting noticed. There are 3 ways:

1- Download Stories directly from Instagram website

2- Head over to Story Reposter without getting detected

3- While taking a screenshot, make sure your phone is set on a flight mode

Instagram is gradually rolling out this very feature and it would be available for everyone quite soon.
