Various apps that inform their users of screenshot notifications may have you rattled and wondering. Apps like Snapchat, BeReal, and Instagram‘s vanish mode, and ‘view-once’ photos inform their users. However, dating apps like Bumble do not normally keep users from taking screenshots.

So we share details about them with our friends and family, discuss and come to conclusions. Now, what we usually forget in this process is the other person’s privacy. Is sharing their private information on other social media apps ethical?

Sharing screenshots of anyone’s profile or photos without their consent violates their privacy and safety.
