The feature, which will notify users whenever someone has screengrabbed their 'Stories', is yet to be enabled by Instagram and is still in development.

'Stories' automatically self-destruct after 24 hours, unless of course, one decides to add them to the 'Story Highlights' section on their profile. But, the screenshot and screen-recording function essentially allow one to make permanent copies of the post if they want to.
