Rumors earlier this year started surfacing that Instagram will be launching its secured stories from screenshot feature but now it's happening and some people might not be pleased with this idea. The move, which serves as a good news to privacy-conscious users, brings Instagram Stories even more in line with Snapchat. If one posts a picture and their account are private then the public account will not be able to share the post directly in their story.

"Instagram purposefully lacks a "Regram" button to promote original sharing, but it's easing up on that philosophy when it comes to Stories", TechCrunch writes. This is one of the latest updates Instagram is working on it's story feature. This new regram feature, however, is but of a compromise. It looks like the feature is now available to a small number of users with a wider rollout expected soon.
