Instagram will be adding this feature to the "ephermal part" of its platform, Stories. Yup, it seems that Instagram is now alerting users whenever a screenshot of their Story has been taken.

Instagram has pushed-out a number of new feature to make it easier to follow other users' activities on the platform. The selected users are shown an alert that the next time they take a screenshot of a friend's story, he/she will be able to see it.

Of course, Instagram have previously notified users if anyone takes a screenshot of a direct message, so that is highly unlikely to change regardless of the response to this new test. It has been pointed out by users that putting your phone in airplane mode (thus cutting off all connections) will let you take screenshots without the other user knowing, although it can be troublesome and you might forget.

Prior to this test the only screenshot notifications on Instagram were when someone took a screenshot of a private direct message. Notably, users can rewatch stories as many times as they want within 24 hours, with the creator unable to see exactly how many times one person watched it. As seen from the image attached above, the users will get notified by a loading image next to the person who has taken a screenshot.

It is to be noted that the one who takes a screenshot will be warned through an alert, but the one who is the original publisher will not be shown any alert, and the only way to see who has taken a screenshot is by tapping on the viewers' list and looking for the shutter logo. With this feature, users will be able to keep a tab of their stories and save it from being misused.

Alternatively, you can also resort to a dedicated third-party app, like Story Reposter, to pull off the same trick. The irony here being, Instagram themselves seem to have copied (yet again!) Snapchat's feature that warns user when someone takes screenshot of their photos and videos.
