CALIFORNIA – Facebook owned photo sharing application Instagram will notify their users when someone will take a screenshot or screen-record their stories.

According to media reports, the security feature will essentially put a star-shaped icon next to the handle of the person who has taken a screenshot or screen recording of stories. The icon will appear in the Story Views section.

In fact, Instagram will warn you the first time you take a screenshot of someone else’s story.

“Next time you take a screenshot or screen recording, the person who posted the story will be able to see it.”

The security feature cannot be worked around when a screenshot will be taken in flight mode.
