How can I know if there is a way to be notified if someone screenshots an Instagram user's Posts/messages etc?

I believe currently Instagram advises users if someone screenshot the images and videos that are sent to them directly only


actually you can't detect it. instagram runs on browser. Print screen is PC local event. As far as I know you can't detect events that are fired outside browser. If it was possible then it would be very big security hole, because you could detect clients e-mails, password typing and etc.

  • by the way. If you're using phone app. Then there is a possibility to make such thing. In this case you're using app not browser. So app may detect some events. – Vytautas Leliūnas Jan 22 '20 at 6:41
