Instagram | Can Someone See If You Screenshot Their Profile?

We're all guilty of seeing something we love on social media and wanting to save it for later. But we need to know: On Instagram, can someone see if you screenshot their profile?

We are all too aware of the dangers of screenshotting on Snapchat. Meanwhile, on Facebook, users cannot see if you screenshot their profile picture.

Does Instagram Notify Users When You Screenshot Their Profile?

The answer is no! Instagram does not send notifications if someone screenshots their profile.

However, do be careful if you feel the need to take a screenshot of a disappearing photo that's been sent directly to you. Instagram does notify users if someone screenshots their disappearing direct messages.

Of course, these policies can change, so we recommend checking Instagram's user privacy guidelines when questions do arise. If you have any other questions, you can always go to Instagram's Help Center for more information.
