Who stalks my Instagram: Is it possible to see who views your Instagram profile

. 4 min read

Don’t you wonder to see who views your Instagram profile? Let’s be honest, if you are an active Instagram user, you probably wonder, “Is there a way to see who viewed my Instagram profile?” or "Who stalks my Instagram?".  

Because of privacy issues, Instagram does not provide an in-house tool to see who views your Instagram profile. Let’s consider that every act of yours on Instagram is being reported. Such a service would alienate you from using Instagram.

Anyway, you may ask yourself whether there is a way to see who views my Instagram profile. It is a bit complicated, though. While some methods work to an extent, some don’t operate.

Can you really see who viewed your Instagram profile manually?

Unfortunately, it is impossible unless someone is commenting, liking your posts, or simply sharing them.

For sure, Instagram tracks its users’ habits and what content they are interested in. However, Instagram does not have any feature to deliver to you to see who views your Instagram profile unless they contact you directly.

However, if you want to take some analytic data about your followers and the engagement you get, shifting to Instagram Business Account would help to some degree. Even though it does not see who views your Instagram profile, Instagram Business can help you understand how your account performs on Instagram.

Moreover, you may consider using a third-party tool to see who viewed your Instagram profile.

3 ways to stalk on Instagram or view Instagram anonymously
While you can open anyone’s Instagram profile and check out their posts without letting them know, you cannot do the same with Instagram stories and private accounts. In such situations, the only option is to view Instagram anonymously.

Step #1: To navigate your story, open the Instagram app and tap the story icon in the upper left corner.

Also, you can access your story directly from the profile page.

Step #2: On the left bottom corner, you will see the “Seen by” icon, which indicates the number of people who viewed your Instagram story.

Once you tap there, the number of people will appear. To see the list, just scroll down.
