But after taking the screenshot, a question always comes up: Does Instagram notify when you screenshot a story? In today's article, I will give the answer of this question.
Does Instagram send a notification to the Account Holder when you Screenshot a story?
In short, the answer is No. Up to this date, Instagram does not notify the account holder of whose story you took a screenshot. This means you can take as many screenshots as you want, but you should follow the Community guidelines. It is possible that in the future Instagram can launch this feature when the account holders will be notified when someone took a screenshot of their story. But till now there is no such feature. But as the privacy laws’ scope is increasing day by day. So, for a better environment, Instagram can launch such a feature.

Well, it is only in the case of disappearing DMS. If you screenshot the picture that is sent for viewing once, and you took a screenshot of that picture, then Instagram will notify that person that you took a screenshot.
Can I screenshot without any Notification?
Yes, it is possible. For that, turn on the flight mode of your device and then screenshot that picture which is sent only for viewing once. As, there is no Internet signal, so no notification will be sent to the sender.

Whether you're taking a screenshot of a Story or reposting someone's photo, always make sure you have the permissions and give credit to the concerned person.
