Instagram to stop alerting users of Story screenshots

Be careful if you tend to share annoying moments on Instagram: the social network will not send you any more warnings if your friends take screenshots of your stories.

Before today, you could see who took a screenshot of one of your stories by looking at the list of people who had watched it. A photographic shutter icon appeared under the name of the people who had taken a screenshot.




The Instagram community was quick to find ways to get around this barrier by using third-party applications or by turning on their phone’s airplane mode before taking a screenshot.

This feature had been in testing since last February and had only been offered to certain users.
