Just when you thought it was safe to slide into his/her DMs, Instagram changed the game. Snooping and stalking just got harder. App updates always bring some new level and the Instagram DM situation just got played. People depend on those DMs to talk to people and get in contact with people that are hard to reach. Having it “Go Down In The DM” just got tricky. The conversations used to private but now you can see who’s sharing your info. The latest app update allows notifications to be sent if someone screenshots your DM.
That’s right folks. Those intimate pics and messages that get sent via DM, sometimes get shared. Now, Instagram is going to send notification whenever such items get screenshotted. Similar to the Snapchat situation, there will be a list of people who screenshot, along with a seen indicator. This won’t include basic timeline and Instagram Story pics. Only the text and images in the DM. Before you press send on that risqué pic, be sure you trust who you’re sending it to.
