Does Instagram Notify About Screenshots (2019)?

INSTAGRAM STORIES: As of February 2018, Instagram DOES notify people if you screenshot their Instagram story. Since this update, you can no longer screenshot Instagram stories without anyone knowing about it.

REGULAR INSTAGRAM POSTS: You can screenshot normal Instagram pictures or video posts without anyone knowing.

DIRECT MESSAGES: As has always been the case for disappearing direct messages, if you screenshot a disappearing photo or video sent by direct message, the user who sent it will be notified. It will look like “_username_ took a screenshot of the photo you sent.”

How to Take Screenshots WITHOUT Notifying the Person

To make sure Instagram does not notify about screenshots of stories, you have 2 legit options.

1. Screenshot Instagram stories freely while looking at them in a web browser, rather than the app. Just go to on your phone or computer.

2. Look at Instagram stories, save, and screenshot anonymously using a third-party app like “Story Reposter for Instagram.”
