Uh-oh: It seems Instagram has picked up another Snapchat feature and started alerting users when someone takes a screenshot of their story. The Facebook-owned app now places an eight-pointed flash next to your name on the list of people that have viewed a story if you took a scrrenshot, identifying you as the culprit. However, much like Snapchat’s original feature, there are ways to get around it

Instagram (and Facebook in general) has been on an interesting journey of taking inspiration from Snapchat’s headline offerings. The company first rolled out “Stories” in August 2016, allowing users to share images that last no longer than 24 hours in a personal reel. Instagram then showed off its augmented reality talents by adding in face filters back in May of 2017. Geostickers, live videos and now screenshot alerts all have their origin in an app Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg famously tried to buy in 2014 for $3 billion. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

How to Avoid Getting Caught in a Screenshot

At first glance, the screenshot alert for stories seems like a hindrance for collecting snaps otherwise lost to the digital graveyard. However, Twitter user Daniël Verlaan has discovered a workaround. There’s a few simple ways to get around the feature:

  • Put your phone into flight mode before taking the screenshot. This can be done by swiping in from the bottom on iPhones (top right on the iPhone X) and choosing the plane icon, or swiping down from the top on Android devices. Once you’ve done the deed, you’re safe to switch off airplane mode again.
  • Visit the Instagram website from a desktop computer. For now, the website doesn’t appear to have any sort of trigger for screenshot alerts, leaving you to save away to your heart’s content.
  • StorySaver, as noted by Twitter user Marit Bosman, is another option. The Android app allows users to download stories of their choosing without any messing around with desktops or airplane modes.

It’s as easy as that! It took a few years, but Instagram has finally brought the cat-and-mouse game of screenshotting Snapchat stories over to its own platform.

You probably don’t need us to tell you that the holidays are fast approaching. We know it’s only October, but your local drugstore probably already has an aisle dedicated to holiday wreaths and candy canes. Scary, yeah. But don’t worry, you still have plenty of time to snag gifts for all the people on your list this year. No matter who they are and what your budget is, we’ve got you covered.

What’s a devil-worshipping teenager supposed to do when it gets cold outside? For many of us with creepy proclivities October 1 simply marks the slow, delicious slide toward Halloween.

These are all the newly available horror series and films available on Netflix this October, from reboots of old favorites to dark British gems that haven’t wrapped their creeping tendrils around American throats yet. Prepare to sleep with the lights on all month.

The internet loves certain things without question: dogs, yodeling kids and memes. But perhaps the most cherished internet fodder are unsolved mysteries. Long after police and private investigators shelve cold cases, real-life murder cases live online for decades, meticulously pored over by Redditors and Facebook-moms alike.

They become especially popular if some curious conspiracy theorist is able to upload photo “evidence” or eyewitness accounts. Sometimes evidence that a jury might take as sufficient cause to convict a killer doesn’t quite satisfy online researchers, and conspiracy theorists will hold tight to creepy, unexplained details, falling deeper down a rabbit hole of independent investigation.

Long-held beliefs about dinosaurs are often revised in light of new findings, from just-discovered fossils to the DNA analysis of old ones. But dislodging old ideas isn’t always easy — especially when they’re popular.

There are plenty of myths about modern animals that are amazingly persistent, despite being regularly debunked. Myths like “camels store water in their humps” (the humps are actually packed full of fat, which is handy fuel for long plods through the desert). Or “bats are blind” (in fact, bats use their vision in tandem with echolocation to catch insects in low light).
