Instagram Users will be alerted when someone takes a Screenshot of your Story

Instagram is testing a new notification feature, alerting users when someone screenshots one of their Insta-stories.

A message warning has already been spotted by some users who posted a story reading, “next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see”.

It’s important to note that Instagram creators won’t get a specific pop up notification; instead, it will show up in their list of story viewers.

As this is currently only in the testing stages, it doesn’t apply to all users yet and we are yet to hear a date for the update release.
