Join the discussion: How would you feel about a screenshot alert for text messages (similar to Snapchat)?

One of the reasons Snapchat became so popular was because of the screenshot notification abilities: if someone snapped a screenshot of that raunchy snap you sent, then you'd get an alert letting you know.

With the fast-approaching launch of iOS 11, rumors of similar screenshot features for texts were being tossed around. They're not true, unfortunately, but that got us thinking: is this a function that people actually want?

There were some rumours swirling around that there might be some Snapchat-like screenshot detection features with iOS 11 when it comes to things like text messages... This isn't happening :cant-watch:, but would you like a feature like this? Why or why not?
