Do People Know If You Screenshot Instagram Stories?

Heads Up: Instagram Is Testing a New Feature That Snitches on You When You Screenshot Stories

At this point, it's almost a given that anyone who has an Instagram account also has a camera roll of forgotten screenshots they've forgotten to delete. Since it first launched in 2010, Instagram has become a well of inspiration, and I personally screenshot everything from cool places to visit to outfits I need to try (but never do).

If you're the same, it may be time to curb your screen-shotting ways, because the popular image-sharing app is currently testing a feature that will notify users of which viewers screenshot or screen-record posts shared on their stories. Similar to Snapchat, the notification takes the form of a shutter symbol against a user's name on your viewed list.

Although this is only a test, Instagram previously made something similar a permanent feature when they created a notification that alerts users when someone screenshots a direct message. According to a statement made to TechCrunch, an Instagram spokesperson said, "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."

While we wait to see whether or not this change becomes permanent, this might be a good time to cull and curate exactly what you're snapping up from other people's stories!
