Instagram Enables Screenshot Alert to Align With Snapchat

Instagram Enables Screenshot Alert to Align With Snapchat

For example, there's a chance that some users may end up watching less stories over time if they aren't able to take screenshots without notifying the creator. However, the one who took the screenshot will get a preemptive warning saying, "Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see". This will help identify the one who published a story to correctly identify the person who took a screenshot. Instagram will Now Notify Screenshot Alerts, if someone will take the screenshot of your stories. Instagram will be adding this feature to the "ephermal part" of its platform, Stories. A shutter-shaped icon will be featured next to the user's name who has clicked a screenshot of your story.

Also, we have known that some of the Instagram users have been taking screenshots of the Stories posted by others and publishing or sharing it with other so that they can watch it anytime.

The feature has been rolled out only to limited users.


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

According to the report, Instagram is likely to roll out the feature if there is not a major impact on engagement. We suppose it is fair to let people know when their content has been saved, although we're also sure that there are some who would prefer if their screenshotting habits are about to become a bit more public. The irony here being, Instagram themselves seem to have copied (yet again!) Snapchat's feature that warns user when someone takes screenshot of their photos and videos.
