Can You Save or Download Someone Else’s Instagram Story?

The answer is yes. You can even do it without the other Instagram users knowing that you downloaded it to your computer. The first thing you need to do is download Google Chrome. Within Chrome, download the IG Story plugin. When watching an Instagram Story from another user you can right click or control click on a MacBook to see the Save Video As option. This will allow you to save an Instagram Story as a zip file.

With over 250 million users now sharing Instagram Stories, many people are looking for a way to download someone else’s story. Whether this is your crush, bf, gf, husband or wife, there are a number of reasons you may want to keep a story for future use.

If you have an iPhone, you can plug it into your MacBook or iMac, open the Instagram app and record the screen using Quicktime. This is another secret way in which you can download or save both Instagram Stories and Snapchat Stories on your computer. You can then send the file to your email that you can open on your iPhone or Android smartphone.

    Thank you so much! I have been trying to figure out a solution for weeks! Every time I went live, I would never have the option to save. I’ve tried so many apps and this plug in is the only thing that worked! Initially the option to “save as” was gray, but finally it was an option! I’m elated!!!!!!
