The feature will show creators a notification when a follower takes a screenshot of their story, reports TechCrunch. The new alert takes the form of a shutter icon next to the names of the people who viewed your stories. If you see the icon next to their name it means they snapped a screenshot.

Instagram isn’t doing this totally on the sly, however. The first time a user attempts to take a screenshot of a story they will see a prompt that says the next time they screenshot a story the creator will be able to see. In other words: You’ve been warned.
Good bye freedom to screenshot IG stories. ???? Thank you, Instagram for the warning. pic.twitter.com/y0pEaVR0Jq
