PSA: Instagram Now Tells You When Someone Screenshots Your Disappearing Photos

Be careful out there.

Posted on November 25, 2016, at 7:56 a.m. ET

So Instagram rolled out an update this week that introduced live video, as well as a feature that allows you to send disappearing photos and videos privately.

Instagram

To send a disappearing photo or video, swipe right from the main feed to open the Stories camera, capture your photo or video, then tap the arrow on the bottom right to send it privately to users or groups.

And now people have discovered that Instagram sends a NOTIFICATION when someone takes a screenshot of your private disappearing photo.

Needless to say, people are freaking out.

Instagram's now saying when we screenshot pictures, LOL please

instagram now notifies people when u screen shot their pictures. me:

However, screenshot notifications are actually limited to disappearing photos and videos only.

This refers to temporary photos and videos that are sent directly to you and are displayed in the row of Stories-style bubbles along the top of your inbox.

Instagram

Instagram does not send a notification when someone takes a screenshot anywhere else in the app.

This means you can still screenshot a user's feed, their public Instagram Story, and a nondisappearing direct message without them knowing.

FYI, the notification will appear in your phone’s notification center and within the Instagram app. It will also show on the bubbles at the top of the inbox.
