I don't use instagram but I can only assume that this feature was considered because some instagram user was afraid of what they post on social media may be taken screenshot of? wtf? lol
Bullshit. PCs don't have such dumb restrictions, as screenshot blocking / restricting, different OS installation blockage, etc. If they do (like right-click blocking in certain websites) then it's easy to override. This is why I'd never prefer a smartphone over PC - smartphones are too weak (calculation power wise) and too restricted.
LOL, easy cheating on this! i even dont use this crappy app, but, if you have notice that take a screenshot of the someone history you just need other phone and take a picture with the normal camera of that desired post of instagram.
so, i think instagram team just think this and know is just st*pd as f*ck to make that warning if someone take a screenshot because someone can trick the system anyway.
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2018Screenshots should be entirely blocked on apps like these. And then you take a photo with a seperate device...
Really it is silly to try to control for this kind of thing. The whole snapchat thing is silly, you are not fooling anyone by uploading "non permanently". *Everything* on the net is permanent. You thought wrong if you thought it was not. If you do not want people to know/keep it, do not upload. Simple enough rule...
SohailSays, 15 Jun 2018Snapchat and iPhone X should die for some horrible trends.Yeah, bezels are so much better....
Apple finally did one thing right (killed the bezels as far as current tech allows) and people still bash her.
I say keep what is good, throw away what is not, don't matter which company does it.
A notch is a million times better than having a bezel up there. Only fashion f**s think it does not belong . F fashion, I want function.
Apple started an excellent trend, Without her we would still be calling "bezeless" samsung like monstrosities...
Teikoku, 16 Jun 2018What about messages?As far as I know, if someone sends you a private story and you take screenshot of it, the other user will still be notify. This was just for general stories i think.
LG Superfan, 15 Jun 2018Or you can just ask about that coffee shopThat's what I do with friends but I don't feel comfortable talking to people I don't know on Instagram. Also tons of others things like clothing, places, food, etc. I like to save them in a sort of "cool thing to try out" gallery for later on.
Anyway, thing is, I'm happy we get to keep this kind of privacy at least. Good to know they still hear users sometimes.
Good news! Sometimes people make stories of a nice coffee shop and I take screenshot to search it later, I dont want them to know I took screenshot of their coffee lol, so yeah, wise move Instagram.
