Can Someone See If You Screen Record A Snapchat Chat On iPhone iOS 11?

Apple finally released iOS 11 yesterday and with the new update came the ability to allow iPhone users to screen record.

Of course with this new update many avid social media users want to know can someone see if you screen record a Snapchat chat on iPhone with the new iOS 11 update?

This is not an outlandish question at all, given that the app already notifies users when someone takes a screenshot of your snaps or chats.

To add to the confusion, many Twitter users have been split on the issue, further confusing, if in fact Snapchat will now notify users of screen recording too.

THE ANSWER:

It depends...

Snapchat confirmed that the app alerts users when the screen recording tool is used to capture snaps or Snapchat chat conversations.

The notifications will also name the Snapchat friend who has screenshotted or recorded the snap.

However, Snapchatters be warned! The Telegraph confirmed, while users of the latest Snapchat version (10.17.5) built on iOS 11, will notify users if screen recording is being used, to be notified or get caught of a screen recording it requires both sender and receiver to be updated to the latest version!

So, while Snapchat confirmed that the lastest version of the app alerts users when the screen recording tool is used to capture snaps or Snapchat chat conversations, the older versions do not. So there is still a way someone could screenshot your snaps or snapchat chats and no notification would be sent!
