Facebook-owned Instagram is testing a new feature that will show users when someone else takes a screenshot of their story. The users who are participating in the test are getting a warning that the next time they take a screenshot of someone’s story that person will be able to see that you took a screenshot.
Also, creators won’t get a specific notification when someone takes a screenshot of their story but can see who took a screenshot of their story by going to the list of story viewers and seeing a new camera shutter logo next to anyone who took a screenshot of their photo.
An Instagram spokesperson said that “we are always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you.“
Prior to this test, Instagram used to send screenshot notifications on Instagram were when someone took a screenshot of a private direct message.
