So if you're one who's inclined to take screenshots of Instagramstories, better get that all out of your system now in case the notifications roll out to a wider set of users.
Users are not happy, with some tweeting that people now have to "creep wisely".
After you screenshot someone's story, a tiny camera shutter icon will show up next to your username in the list of people who have viewed it. That being said, Instagram hasn't officially announced the feature and may end up scrapping it rather than making it available to all users.
Instagram users who screencap, beware: on Monday, the social media platform confirmed that it has started notifying select users when their public Instagram Stories posts are screencapped or recorded, and which follower did it.
The feature that shows when you screenshot Instagram stories only shows who has watched the story when you tap the "seen by" area at the bottom left corner. People screenshotted at will because it wasn't traceable. The irony here being, Instagram themselves seem to have copied (yet again!) Snapchat's feature that warns user when someone takes screenshot of their photos and videos.
But suppose you have no ability to feel shame and continue to take screenshots anyway.

As well, taking a screen grab of a story from Instagram on a web browser on desktop will also avoid will also prevent any notifications from being sent.
Instagram is slowly rolling-out the new functionality to users worldwide. Any screenshot of a direct message triggers a notification to the sender, but a screenshot of a story will just result in a notation being placed next to the offender's name in the viewer analytics tab.
