Instagram Decides Not to Alert Users When Screenshots Are Taken

    Instagram confirmed it has decided against the idea of alerting users when a screenshot is taken of their story.

    The post-Instagram Decides Not to Alert Users When Screenshots appeared first on Techevangelist Seo.

    Adopting this feature would have put Instagram on the same page as Snapchat, which has always let users know when screenshots are taken and by who.

    According to a statement given to Buzzfeed News, Instagram is no longer testing this feature and no one will get notified when screenshots are taken of their stories.

    Instagram did not elaborate on why it decided to scrap this feature. Presumably, it was due to the disappointment that followed when users found out they may no longer be able to take screenshots anonymously.

    Users can now go about their business on Instagram and feel free to take screenshots of stories without anyone knowing about it.
