Instagram has recently released an update that scared many users, revolutionizing its privacy policy and introducing notification in the event of screenshot Instagram Stories.

  • once done, without closing the application, activate the smartphone's aerial mode and with the phone completely offline reopen the history previously displayed;
  • Now, take the screenshot quietly. Once the image is saved, then close the story and the app. After that, you can disable the airplane mode.
