Instagram’s stories have just gotten more tricky. We are all aware that they only last 24 hours and after that, they’re gone permanently. But now, the photo-sharing platform is also starting to implement notifications every time someone screenshots a story, making it harder than ever to stalk your friends, your crush or your boyfriend/girlfriend.
But what if I told you there’s a way to save Instagram stories without notifying anyone? In fact, they don’t even have to know you saw it. Noticeably, the social media platform doesn’t have its own function for this and an external program is necessary.
The app is called StorySaver and we will teach you how to use it below.
How to save Instagram stories without getting caught.
1. Download and install StorySaver
You will find the program on Android as StorySaver and on iOS as Stories Repost.
2. Enter with your account
3. Look for the person’s story…
The main menu of StorySaver will show you all of your friends’ stories in order of publication of their last story. You can select any of them or, if what you’re looking for is the story of someone you’re not following, type in their user in the magnifying glass in the upper right corner.
Keep in mind that you must know the exact username of a person to find him/her.
4. Select the story and save it
In the next screen you will see all the stories of the selected person. Click on one of them and three options will appear:
- Repost: Allows you to repost the story on your Instagram account.
- Save: Allows you to save the story in your phone.
- Share: Also saves the story in your phone, but with the aim of sharing it through Whatsapp, e-mail, etc..
5. Enjoy the stories without being caught!
With this process you will have all the Instagram stories you want without notifying the user that you saved it, and they won’t even know you saw it!
Another possible way to do this is to take the screenshot with your WiFi and data turned off, but this still hasn’t been confirmed.
