Still, people are hopeful over the possibility of screenshot notifications becoming more widespread. There are some positives and some negatives to report from this.

On that positive tip, a simple way of saving Instagram photos without taking a screenshot exists. Nobody will know you are saving their photos- talk about being discreet. However, the downside is that this method involves ‘sneaking and creeping around.’ It is almost stalker mode.
