When does Instagram notify you that your content has been copied with a screenshot?

Having become the most popular function of the photo social network, Instagram Stories allows the user to enter what they want with the peace of mind that after a maximum of 24 hours it will be deleted. And from mid-January 2018, if someone were to enter your profile, see your Stories and take a screenshot of it, Instagram itself would notify you thanks to a sort of really useful ‘spy’ function.

But is this function still active?

It no longer warns you if someone catches your stories

THEimplemented as a test function which was successful, the platform itself confirmed to the BuzzFeed News site 3 years ago that this tool was only in testing, and the feature was subsequently disabled. In this way, if someone enters your Stories and takes a screenshot, you will never find out who they were, as before. And whoever took the screenshot will keep that material you uploaded because you knew it would disappear just like Snapchat snaps.

But the social network warns of something similar: when a ‘screenshot’ is taken in a direct message.

When does Instagram notify you that your content has been acquired?

MDs or direct messages are the ‘WhatsApp’ of Instagram, the feature that allows you to chat with a contact privately , without the rest of your followers seeing it. And in Snapchat style, if you send a photo, image or video via direct messages, it will disappear sooner or later – you can choose to make it disappear after being seen once.

If you send a photo or video to a contact via MD on Instagram, and he sees it and takes a screenshot, Instagram will warn you with a symbol : a circular icon right next to the “Photo” icon and above the word “viewed”. This circle is a “spy” who will warn you of this.
