How to download Instagram stories and photos
Tech2 min read
  • Instagram does not alert the user when you download stories or photos.
  • You can use third-party websites to download Instagram stories or photos.
  • This can only be used for public profiles.
Instagram is one of the most popular photo sharing apps and has over a billion monthly active users. Instagram allows users to share photos, videos and stories. Unlike Snapchat, you can save these posts and photos without the other person knowing.

While the easiest and quickest way to save a photo or video posted by someone is to either take a screenshot or use the phone’s inbuilt screen recorder, it does not save the file in the same resolution.

If you are looking to save someone’s Instagram photo or stories, you can use third-party websites that allow you to easily save the files in original resolution.
