How Do You Know When Someone Takes A Screenshot Of Your Photo On Instagram?

We're all guilty of seeing something we love on social media and wanting to save it for later, but with the new Instagram screenshot update this 2018 many Instagram users want to know: How Do You Know When Someone Takes A Screenshot Of Your Photo On Instagram?.

While we are all aware of the dangers of screenshotting on Snapchat now the glory days of anonymous Instagram screenshots are over!

The Answer:

Instagram confirmed this week that they are indeed testing a new feature that will allow users to see when someone takes a screenshot of their story. Prior to this users only knew when someone took a screenshot of a direct message.

If this new feature is rolled out to the general pubic, users can see who took a screenshot of their story by going to the list of story viewers and seeing a new camera shutter logo next to anyone who took a screenshot of their photo.

This new feature will NOT however let users know via notification when someone takes a screenshot of their story, it will only show up in their list of story viewers.

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.
