If taking a screenshot of your (future) bae on Insta and flicking it out to the ol’ group chat is your idea of a hobby—listen the hell up.

In terrifying news to Instastalkers everywhere, Instagram is rolling out a screenshot notification function. Set to hit a select group of detectives users, your actions could soon send a cheeky FYI to the person you’re currently stalking the shit out of IRL.

Before you throw your phone out the window, it’s only affecting Instastories. And if you’re one of the lucky few affected, you’ll be shown a notification the next time you go to take a cheeky screenie for laters. And before you freak out even more, future bae won’t be sent an instant notification (yet), rather they’ll see your creepy ways in their view tab with a cute AF camera emoji next to it.

What even is the future of stalking in 2018? Well, this. Apparently.
