Creeping On Instagram May Get A Lot Harder

Instagram is all set to bring one of its much-awaited feature on Instagram stories, this feature will let you know once someone has taken a screenshot of your Instagram story.

At present, it appears that users see a "warning" when the feature is activated, saying that the next time they screenshot a story, it will be visible.

Some Instagram users took to Twitter to report that they are now able to see who has been snapping screenshots of their stories.

The feature was clearly inspired by Snapchat: when a user takes a screenshot of something you posted, you will be notified.

The feature is not now live, but could be soon.

Instagram will now alert you when somebody has snapped a screenshot of a post in your Story.

Now, there is a loophole for particularly dedicated social sleuths: putting your phone in Airplane Mode allows you to sneak a screenshot to your heart's content without triggering the notification. So it comes as no surprise that Instagram is once again borrowing another one of Snapchat's features. What, by grassing us up if we want to take a screenshot?

Instagram is slowly rolling-out the new functionality to users worldwide. The feature doesn't even prohibit users from screenshotting, it just equips users with the knowledge of who might be trying to creep. That being said, we will let you know once the feature is live for everyone and if there's any flawless workaround to prevent the other person from knowing it.
