Under the story, users can see a small flash icon to show who has taken a screenshot.

Since the feature is now on testing phase, only users that are part of the test are able to have a sneak peek of it.

Now, Instagram will notify the person who has posted the Story on its Instagram profile whenever any user takes a screenshot or video of his/her story which will let the user know about who the person taking the screenshot is. And the warning goes as shown below. To be exactly clear, the owners of the original posts would not be getting some specific alert when someone takes a screenshot of their story, however, it would only show up in their list of story viewers.

And users who are participating in the test can see who took a screenshot of their story by going to the list of story viewers and seeing a new camera shutter logo next to anyone who took a screenshot of their photo. To be precise, 24Hrs of existence and it gets automatically disappeared. Instagram is testing the Screenshot Alert for stories.

Rajapaksa's party expected to win Sri Lanka local government polls
Rajapaksa, a legislator in the opposition benches, commands the backing of 54 legislators who have defected from Sirisena's party. However, the government has yet to deliver on these reforms or on promised anti-corruption measures.

Good bye freedom to screenshot IG stories. While Snapchat is more suited towards the younger crowd, Instagram has usually held a reputation for being the more level-headed of the two, treating its users like normal people and not giving them ridiculous restrictions. Anyone could take a screenshot of someone's photo or story without notifying the creator.

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.

Instagram has pushed-out a number of new feature to make it easier to follow other users' activities on the platform.
