Instagram testing screenshot warnings in Stories

Users participated in the testing of this feature are receiving a warning message that "Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see".

Earlier, the alerts for screenshots were provided when someone would take a screenshot of a private direct message.

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. Recently, Instagram launched a new feature on its platform known as Instagram Stories. When somebody takes a screenshot of one of your "Stories", a sun-shaped symbol will appear alongside their name in the Story Views section, according to The Independent. Anyone could take a screenshot of someone's photo or story without notifying the creator.


So, if you are anxious about being caught while taking screenshot, there is also a way to do it without being caught. Now the question is how to do it? You can do it by turning your device on flight mode.
