Instagram is no longer notifying users when you screenshot their story

In January, Instagram started testing an interesting new feature: It would notify users when someone took a screenshot of their stories.

According to BuzzFeed, though, Instagram is no longer testing the feature.

Instagram Stories, just like Snapchat Stories, are designed to be ephemeral — meaning they are only available for a short period of time, and then they’re gone forever. This limitation can obviously be avoided in numerous ways, with taking a screenshot or recording a video being the most obvious. But many users who would think of doing so would likely pause if they thought the person who posted the video would be notified that their story is being screenshotted/recorded.
