Instagram is testing a new feature that notifies users that someone has taken a screenshot of their story. Snapchat has had this feature for a long time, and it aims to improve user privacy.
The company also notifies users who take screenshots. At the same time, a message appears: 'the next time you take a screenshot, the user will be notified about it'. Everything is clear and clear.
However, for those who want to continue to take screenshots anonymously, there are several options. Below we will tell you about them.
Use airplane mode
The first way is to download a story, and then quickly turn on airplane mode, take a screenshot and turn off airplane mode.
This worked when such a feature first appeared on Snapchat. So far, the method works with Instagram, but it is possible that this workaround will be limited in the future.
Use the web version
You may not know, but Instagram can also be opened through a browser on your computer or directly at iPhone. In the web version, you can take screenshots of stories, and users will not be notified about it.
Go to instagram.com, log into your account, open the desired story and take a screenshot. Nobody will know about it.
Use a third party app
App Store already has many applications that allow you to bypass sending notifications, as well as view stories anonymously and even save them to your device. One of them is Story Reposter.
Download the application, find the user you are interested in, open the desired story and save it to your own iPhone.
Use a jailbreak tweak
If you have a jailbreak installed, you can use the 'Rocket for Instagram' tweak, which, among other things, allows you to anonymously view and save stories with the click of a button.
There are other similar tweaks, for example Instagram ++. The only caveat is that a jailbreak is required.
