Instagram will not roll out screenshot notification feature

It is seem to be one of the things that allowed people to prefer Instagram story mode over the stories of Snapchat as the latter has always had inbuilt screenshot warning into it. It looks like Instagram has decided to hear its users about this feature. Therefore, according to the recent buzz, the Instragram’s screenshot notification feature is pulled back & it won’t be rolling out anyone from now onwards.

Users can go back to taking screenshots of the complete Instagram story posts as much as they really want. That’s why taking screenshots of privately sent posts will still inform to the sender. Only Instagram would hear its users regarding the chronological timeline. The previous implementation also warned & pointed out about the screenshotters which the poster of the story that will be indicated of their actions. The company told that the Instagram has stopped sending notification of screenshot to story poster.

It’s necessary to keep a note that when the feature of screenshot notification was still in force, there were various ways through which one can capture stories without getting detected. With this change, Instagram is making it easier & simpler to do so without any extra steps. But it did not describe on its rationale behind the change, however it likely had to do with user support.
