Did you ever save any Instagram posts i.e. photos or videos? Did you ever think that the person can also be notified or not?
Some Instagram photos worth saving but the thought comes in mind whether the uploader gets notified on this or not. I would like to share a quick story, I found someone’s photo on Instagram & she was known to me and when I just saved the photo from her account I wondered if the person got notified as I did not want myself to represent as a spy of her profile.
I understand that you are also looking for the same answer as Instagram allows users to save a photo from anyone’s profile if that visible to you.
Now, on that feature, yes, through the Instagram business account the user can see how many people actually saved the photo and if you saved any photos you can see it on the ‘Saved’ option folder on your Instagram Account.
If you want to know if a person gets any notification when you save his/her Instagram photo then know it well that Instagram does not allow this feature to find who are these people.
Whether if you just took a screenshot of Instagram will now show it to the user and the analytics also do the same type of work to make people visible in a few cases.
Now, in this article, I am going to share the feature that an Instagram user can control to see who viewed what on Instagram. This guide explains how the settings work and the precautions you have to take to protect your privacy.
Does Instagram show if someone Save Photos?
If you just saved an Instagram photo of someone else and wondering whether the person gets notified by Instagram or not then you have to know some simple features that actually Instagram has on its core.
Definitely, the person will be able to view how many people actually saved his post that is a photo or a video directly on Instagram.
Only in the case, the account is a business profile then the person will be able to view the Analytics where he can see the people who actually viewed his profile or saved the photos.
Now on the personal Instagram profile, the person will not be able to see the name of people who saved is forced from Instagram, only he can see the number of people saved that photo.
How to see who saved your Instagram post?
Instagram gives Alert if someone takes a Screenshot:
At Instagram, people tend to take screenshots of stories, photos, direct messages, or screen record videos, and everything that you post directly from Instagram. Another question may be either Instagram sends any notification to its user when someone screenshots anything on Instagram.
In this article, I am going to discuss with you on what basis Instagram actually gives you the notifications when someone takes a screenshot on Instagram.
⦿ For Stories:
If any person screenshots of your story then Instagram would not send any notification to you. Previously, a few years ago Instagram has that feature which now discontinued on Instagram to send any notification for taking the screenshot of stories. That means you can not get any notification if your friends take a screenshot of your Instagram story.
⦿ For Photos or Posts:
Now people are confused about either Instagram will send a notification if they take a screenshot of someone else’s post.
To make things clear and to provide an absolute answer, I want to inform you that Instagram will not send any notification to that person if you take a screenshot of their posts or images. You can take as many screenshots as you want from Instagram of all users but Instagram would not send any notifications to the person who owns that post.
⦿ Direct Messages:
Recently, Instagram has introduced this feature where you can get notifications when you screenshot a direct message on Instagram. Every time when you send a photo to someone through the direct Instagram message and when the person opens it on his phone and takes a screenshot of it, you will see is circle loading icon on the ‘Seen’ status on your direct message chat.
The same you will also get on the chat-list and whoever takes the screenshot will be popped up on the chatbox. Remember that the circle loading icon is a symbol of taking a screenshot of your direct message that you have sent on Instagram to someone else.
How can I save posts I see on Instagram?
Instagram has introduced the new feature where you can save multiple posts on Instagram account. In a private section where you only be able to view the saved ones anytime, you want just by logging into your Instagram account.
If you want to save the Instagram post, in case only a single photo, tap on the save icon below the photo, or else you can also save it to a collection. Like if you want to save the photo by categorizing it into different folders then you can tap on to that save icon and create a collection and save on to that folder. Let’s follow these steps:
➊ First of all, open that Instagram profile whose photos you want to collect and tap on the photo you want to save.
➋ Now, below the photo, you will see save icon at the bottom right corner. You just have that option to save the Instagram post on your account from where you can browse the same in the future.
➌ If you just tap on the photo, it will be saved on your private section on your Instagram profile. You can also save the photos by categorizing by looks or resolution, just you have to tap & hold and you will see the option with + to add collections to save that photo inside that collection.
Find people Who Saved Your Instagram photos
If you want to see actually who saved your Instagram post or how many times the post has been saved on Instagram then this is definitely possible and Instagram allows you to see the number of times your post gets saved through the analytics, you can easily find out the people who are actually doing this.
You can list out those people who are actually saved your Instagram post by typing on to the same button on your picture and this will pop up the notification of how many people actually saved but the profile visits and other analytics you have to find from the analytics by converting your personal account into a business account.
Note: To turn the Instagram personal account into business just go to settings and from there just choose ‘Business account settings’ and if you have an active Facebook business page you are successful.
Along with these, there is another app that actually can show you, people names and analytics of Instagram account and this app is available for iOS device ‘ Reports for Instagram’ and the at the app, you can easily see all the followers, profile visitors and the people saved your Instagram photos.
To check the number of people who saved your Instagram photo, follow this simple guide:
➊ First of all, open the Instagram post or photo that you want to check the records for people who saved this.
➋ Now below the photo, you will see and saved icon with numbers. Once you tap on that icon, it will open the number of people who saved that Instagram photo.
That’s all you have to do to find out that people who saved your Instagram photo or a video on to their profile. Remember that, once you delete the post from your Instagram the same will be removed from their ‘Saved’ section as well.
Finding the Saved Photos from Instagram:
If you want to find the saved photos from Instagram just go to your profile, from the three-line icon just tap on the ‘Saved’ option to see all saved photos.
The Bottom Lines:
As I have discussed in this article that you can get notified when someone takes a screenshot of your direct message but whenever someone saves your Instagram post, you will only see how many people actually did this but you would not be able to view the names of those people if you don’t use the business account analytics.
