Instagram is currently testing a feature that identifies users who take screenshots of public Instagram Stories. Instagram already identifies users that take a screenshot of a photo or video that’s sent as a direct message. This new feature — the latest to be lifted from Snapchat — hasn’t been turned on for all users in order for Instagram to first gauge response.
In a statement to TechCrunch, Instagram acknowledged it was testing the feature, which we’ve been able to confirm on at least one Verge staff account. Some users guilty of screenshotting stories have already received pop-up warnings from the app that states rather ominously, “Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see it.”
The Stories feature tells you who has watched your story when you tap on the “seen by” area in the bottom left corner.
