Instagram to notify people when someone takes screenshots of their story

NEW YORK Feb 13: Instagram has reportedly rolling out a new feature that alerts people when someone takes screenshots or screen recordings of their story posts.
 
The security feature will essentially put a star shaped icon next to the person's handle who has taken a screen shot or screen recording of your stories.
 
But Instagram will warn you the first time you take a screen shot 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,” reads the warning titled ‘Screen shots in stories’.
 
However, the security feature can work while taking a screen shot in flight mode.
