How to Save Instagram Photos Without Screenshot

Instagram has been copying Snapchat features, and one of the most notable features is Instagram Direct, which lets users send photos and videos that disappear after being viewed. However, Instagram Direct has a clone feature that safeguards against unwanted saving by sending a notification to the sender whenever a screenshot is taken by the recipient. This clone feature makes it difficult for Instagram users to save photos without getting caught.

Have you ever taken a screenshot of a disappearing photo on Instagram Direct and found the sender notified? If so, you know how frustrating it can be. But don’t worry; we have a solution for you.

In this blog post, we will show you how to take a screenshot of disappearing photos on Instagram Direct without getting caught. We will provide solutions for both Android and iPhone users.

Let’s get started.

First, open the Instagram app and go to direct messages. We will show you how the sender receives the notification after the screenshot is taken. We will use two devices and two different Instagram accounts.

Now, let’s send a disappearing photo from one device to the other. On the receiver device, take a screenshot of the photo. As you can see, the sender’s device has been notified.

To avoid getting caught, go to the Instagram direct page containing the messages without selecting the view photo button. From there, enter airplane mode by swiping down from the notification bar and taking a screenshot before it expires. The sender’s device won’t be alerted.

But if you turn data back on, the sender will be notified. To avoid that, head to the phone’s main settings menu and open the apps or apps and notifications. From there, select Instagram from the list, then tap “Force stop” at the top. Confirm your choice on the prompt, and you’ll be free to disable airplane mode and reopen Instagram without alerting the sender.

For iPhone users, once the screenshot is taken, there is no option to force stop. You will have to uninstall the Instagram app right after the screenshot has been taken. After uninstalling Instagram, you can disable airplane mode and reinstall the app. The sender will never come to know that you have taken a screenshot of the photo.

In conclusion, Instagram has made it challenging to save disappearing photos without getting caught. But with this simple trick, you can save photos without alerting the sender. We hope this blog post was helpful to you.
