Does Instagram Notify When You Screenshot a Story

‘Does Instagram notify when you screenshot a story,’ this question is as old as the Instagram stories themselves.

Everybody, while screenshotting other’s stories or uploading their own, has this in mind.

Let’s find out whether this is true or just a myth.

Does Instagram Notify When You Screenshot a Story

The short answer: No, Instagram doesn’t notify when you screenshot a story or when someone screenshots your story. This was a real feature introduced in early 2018. And after a few months, it was rolled back in June 2018 due to privacy-related concern.

If it was 2018, you could easily see who took the screenshot of your story and confront them if you want. This short-lived featured allows users to see who viewed their stories and who screenshotted them.

You just had to click the viewers’ list and look for the swirling star-like symbol. These are the people who not only viewed your story but also screenshotted it.
