Instagram will tell on you when you take a Story screenshot
February 13, 2018
If you are someone who screenshots Instagram stories, you might want to watch out. Instagram is currently testing a feature that will show users when someone has taken a screenshot or a screen recording of their story. The ‘screenshotter’ will also receive a notification saying that the user will be informed of their action. Similar to Snapchat, a shutter icon will show up in their list of story viewers. Instagram is testing to see if this has a significant impact on engagement.
Good bye freedom to screenshot IG stories. 💔 Thank you, Instagram for the warning. pic.twitter.com/y0pEaVR0Jq
