  • Did Instagram just stop notifying users about screenshots in Stories?

Earlier this week, Instagram revealed to Buzzfeed News that they have officially discarded this feature and now have no plans to bring it back to the platform.

On the other end, the person who posted the Story would see a Sun-like symbol (refer image above) right next to the person's name who took a screenshot of the Story or screen-recorded it.

Back in February, when Instagram began the test, it said that some users will receive a warning when they try to take a screenshot of someone's Story for the first time.

Instagram's screenshot-alert feature was taken from Snapchat.

This screenshot notification is clearly another copy of a Snapchat feature which lets users know if the photos, videos, or chats are captured by a recipient. The image-sharing service now notifies users when a screenshot is taken of images sent in a private Direct Message (DM). Instagram has not supplied a reason for the cancellation at this time.

Non-collegiate players unlikely to be in NBA draft green room this year
Even though he returned for the SEC and NCAA Tournament, concerns remain that the 6-foot-10 forward is not fully recovered. He had postponed a second workout because of a minor hip problem that popped up earlier this week.

If you don't want to go through the hassle of making a new account, there are at least two websites that allow you to view Instagram Stories anonymously.

There are a few changes coming to Instagram in the near future. Because if someone actually screenshots something, there's not much you can actually do about it.

After a trial period of a few months, Instagram has chose to halt the introduction of screenshot notifications.

However, Instagram only ran a test with this feature.
