Many Instagram users want to know, "can Instagram see screenshots?" Then it is to notify that Instagram users have been able to freely screenshot or screen grab other users' stories without being notified of it. If you post a picture to your story and someone screenshots, you will never know. Instagram used to send notifications to the stories' owners if someone took a screenshot of their content. It was a big deal previously, and Instagram removed this feature from the platform due to privacy issues in 2018.
