✎ Key Takes:

» If you want to know whether Instagram notifies you if someone screenshotted your story then you should know that when someone screen recorded or screenshotted your story you would not get notified on your Instagram.
» However, if you are on your Instagram DM then if someone is screen recording your direct message chat you will show the notification bar on that DM chat section that the person screenshotted your DM.

Does Instagram Notify When You Screen Record:

It was previously informed to users that Instagram would notify users of screen recordings or screenshotting of stories.

But, after the recent update made, now Instagram is no longer notifying its users of such activities.

If you want to have a recording of someone’s story you can do so, and the best part of it is you can openly and freely do it as the opposite person will never know about it. The Instagram app has no such inbuilt system that notifies its users when someone records their posted stories.

Can You See If Someone Screen Records Your Instagram Story?

You may fear that the user will get to know if you screen-record their Instagram posts from the feed. Fortunately, Instagram doesn’t notify the user when you screen-record the images or posts of others from the Instagram feed.

Users often take screenshots or screen recordings of others’ posts and pictures to keep them safely in the gallery so that it doesn’t get lost or to show them to other people.

Even if you take screenshots of others’ pictures, the user will not be able to know anything about it. Therefore, you can use any third-party screen recorder app or the built-in screen recorder to record the Instagram posts of users without worrying about getting caught.

When Does Instagram Notify:

You will notice these things:

1. Screen Record Someone’s Post

Instagram may notify you when your screen records someone’s post, as taking a screenshot is not prohibited by the app; you can take it. Instagram does not have the download post option, meaning you can save a photo on your device from Instagram, so taking a screenshot becomes the best option to get it.

2. Screen Recording Instagram Stories

Along with taking screenshots, you have another option to get an Instagram post is screen recording. Mainly for Instagram videos or reels, the best way to get it is screen recording. In that case, if the user enables the notifications, he may receive them.

3. A Disappearing Photo

Instagram also notifies a user if you are caught taking a screenshot of a disappearing photo. If you want to have the photo after it disappears, you can take a screenshot, but it may notify the users.

4. When you Screen record a DM

You can take screenshots to record a secret DM on Instagram, but it may notify the user when you take screenshots.
