A new feature is now out, with an alert while someone takes a screenshot or screen recording of your stories. The Facebook-owned Instagram will notify their users when someone will screenshot or screen-record their temporary stories. While some TNW staffers were able to see who screenshot their Stories, others couldn't yet use the feature.
A post once shared to your story can be customised so it appears like a regular post would in your feed or as a clean stripped down design with just the image and the original user's handle.
With over 300 million active users on the platform, it remains to be seen how Instagram's new feature will be received. The Star shaped icon is visible with the name of a person who screenshot your story in handler bar.
Rumors earlier this year started surfacing that Instagram will be launching its secured stories from screenshot feature but now it's happening and some people might not be pleased with this idea.
The new feature brings Instagram Stories even more in line with Snapchat, the app it was heavily inspired by.
