Some people who screenshot Instagram Stories are getting flagged

Instagram now notifies users if someone takes a screenshot of their Stories

Further, users who are participating in the test are said to be able see who took a screenshot of their story.

Instagram appears to be testing a new feature that lets users know when someone takes a screenshot of their Story. Like there is a chance that people might stop watching stories in greater number as they would not be able to take screenshots anonymously. The feature if rolled out, it would intrinsically align Instagram with Snapchat in order to see how the platform tackles with screenshots. With this new feature, a circle shutter icon will display next to the name of the account that has screen grabbed your content. Story owners otherwise won't be alerted when someone takes a screenshot - they can only tell after manually checking the "seen by" list.

The users who are included in the testing phase are getting a warning alert that if next time they take a screenshot or screen recording of their friend's story that friend would be notified.

According to the report, Instagram is likely to roll out the feature if there is not a major impact on engagement.

It has only deepened over the years as the North closes in on the ability to field an arsenal of nukes that can hit US cities. Her arrival on Kim's private jet with a coterie of 22 officials was broadcast live on South Korean television.

Surprisingly, user who have put the original post won't be shown any alert when somebody takes a screenshot. However, with the upcoming feature, it will be easier for you to keep a tab on who is secretly saving a screenshot of your the vanishing stories.

Earlier to this, the only screenshot notification on Instagram was when someone used to take a screenshot of the private direct message. 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.

Alternatively, you can also resort to a dedicated third-party app, like Story Reposter, to pull off the same trick.
