BeReal is definitely making strides in the social media space, with people wanting to create a profile as soon as possible. But you might also be alert to the fact that people might grab your content, for several reasons. So, how to see who screenshotted your BeReal? Let's take a look.
But is there a way to see if someone has taken a picture of your content? Let's take a look at how to see who screenshotted your BeReal.
How to see who screenshotted your BeReal
We already know that BeReal doesn't notify screenshots - unlike Snapchat. This means there are no push notifications sent when someone takes a screenshot of your BeReal. However, you can see if someone screenshotted your BeReal post.
On Android, to see who screenshotted your BeReal, simply tap the screenshot count icon on the top-right of your BeReal post and the list of screenshotters will be revealed to you.
The process is a bit different on iPhone. On iPhone, to see who screenshotted your BeReal, you need to share your BeReal post with someone else on a different social network such as Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook.
Here is how to see who screenshotted your BeReal on iPhone:
- Tap the screenshot count icon on the top-right of your BeReal post.
- Choose a platform to share your BeReal post on. You can select WhatsApp and send the image to yourself.
- Once that is done, the app will reveal the identity of the person(s) who screenshotted your BeReal.
Naturally, this information is only valid at the moment that you have taken the screenshot. You might want to try it again later, especially if someone else screenshots the post again, you will need to redo all of these steps again to see who else took a screenshot.
Why does BeReal notify this information on screenshots?
While some might think this information is not strictly necessary to a user, this is for reasons of both privacy and safety.
This way, having this information, you always know who is keeping an eye on you and this might also deter other people from screenshotting your posts.
