When we talk about any social media platform like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, et. there is a fear of losing privacy always behind the case. Sometimes, you may fear losing your privacy.
If you have some sensitive pictures or videos on your Instagram account you may be afraid because someone can take a screenshot or can download these pictures and can use it anywhere.
If this is the case then you’re at the right place. In this article, I’ll explain how you can keep your Instagram pictures and videos safe and also will discuss whether you can know if someone takes a screenshot of your Instagram post.
Make sure to stay with me and read the article in order to get the right knowledge about this.
Here are the steps to protect your content:
We’re sharing our pictures and videos on Instagram and other social media platforms without even thinking about privacy.
We’re sharing sensitive content that shouldn’t be shared on social media because it can leak our private life. We don’t think while sharing such sensitive data on the internet.
Instagram is also the same part. If you want to protect your account from being leaked by anonymous persons then here is the catch. Instagram offers an option by which you can make your account private.
Private means only your followers can view the images and videos you shared on your profile. In order to enable this setting, you need to take care of the below steps as I explained.
1. First, you need to open your Instagram application on your mobile device. Once the application will open, make sure to click on the profile icon at the bottom-right of your profile.
2. When you’ll open your Instagram profile, now, you’ll see three parallel lines at the top-right of your android mobile screen.
3. When you’ll click on that, you’ll find various options, make sure to hit the SETTINGS tab.
4. When you’ll click on the SETTINGS, here, you’ll find the option called PRIVACY. Make sure to click on that and you’ll see the first option called PRIVATE ACCOUNT.
5. Make sure to toggle on this option and your account will now become private. Now whatever you’ll share on your IG profile it’ll view only by your followers.
These are the required steps to make your Instagram account private. In privacy settings, there are other options as well. You can explore these options and can see which one is good or which one is not good for you.
Now, let’s move further and discuss the screenshot. Suppose, you like someone’s Instagram post and you want to save that post in the local memory of your mobile device.
Now, you have two options to do this, either you can take a screenshot or you can use a third-party website for downloading that post.
Now, the question is when you’ll take a screenshot is there any notification that will go to the owner’s profile? Well, the direct answer to this question is a big NO!
Instagram doesn’t offer any such feature. You can take screenshots of any Instagram post and can save them on your mobile device.
If you want to download and want to use any image then appropriate permission is required from the owner’s side before using the image.
