5 Tricks And Hacks To View Private Instagram Accounts

Like other social media platforms online, Instagram remains one of the in-demand channels for everyone worldwide. With some innovative features like Instagram Stories and Reels, it has maintained a high level of popularity in terms of sharing images and videos and connecting to people wherever you are. 

However, Instagram has some privacy and security features to protect its users’ confidential information. This means users can set their profiles private to ensure unauthorized persons can’t access their accounts. 

For this reason, viewing a private Instagram account can be difficult if you have no access at all. But it doesn’t have to be challenging if you’re aware of some ways to access private profiles.  

So, whether you want to keep track of a business competitor for your social media marketing campaign or obtain information about someone, below are the five tricks and hacks for viewing private Instagram accounts: 

  • Download Private Instagram Viewing Apps  

One of the best tricks and hacks for viewing private Instagram profiles is to use a private IG viewing app. It’s a software designed to check Instagram accounts without sending an alert to the account holder. This means that using a private Instagram account viewer can be an excellent option if you don’t want the profile owner to know you’re stalking them.  

However, it’s essential to know that not all private Instagram account viewing apps are legitimate and safe. For instance, some options might ask for verification or require you to answer surveys before using their services. 

That said, it’s important to conduct thorough research to find a reliable private Instagram viewer without verification or surveys. You can check some reliable third-party review websites to compare your options and decide which one is safe for you to use.  

  • View A Private Profile Through A Mutual Friend 

Another most straightforward way to gain access to a private Instagram account is through a mutual friend. You might have a mutual friend who’s already a follower of the person you want to view on their private profile.  

So, if you really want to gain access to another individual’s private Instagram account, you can ask that mutual friend to check it out and save their posts for you. With this trick, you can obtain information about the person without notifying them.  

  • Use Other Social Media Platforms  

If someone has set their IG account private but you want to view their profile, then searching other social media platforms can be an excellent idea. Popular channels like Facebook, Snapchat, Pinterest, TikTok, and Twitter can be used to locate another person’s profile and gain access to Instagram posts that aren’t restricted.  

To get started with this trick or hack, copy the person’s username and use it to search for them on other social media platforms. If you don’t know their username, try checking their Instagram bio to see if it’s available. Once the information is ready, you can start searching through other channels to collect photos or videos from the person’s profile.  

  • Ask For Google’s Help  

Apart from other social media channels, you can also call on Google for assistance. Fortunately, a major search engine like Google has a collection of someone’s old Instagram posts before they set their accounts to private mode

Hence, if you can’t view a private Instagram account easily, you can enter the person’s user name in the search bar to get some results. Once the page loads, you can find a library of the person’s public posts and other essential information. This trick can help you view private accounts without getting into any trouble.  

  • Send A Follow Request  

If any of the tricks mentioned above and hacks don’t provide good results, your last resort is to send the private IG account holder a ‘follow’ request. 

Generally, when sending a request to a private profile, you may have to wait for the owner to accept it before their account becomes visible to you. If you’re lucky, you can receive the acceptance you need if the person happens to be online when you send the request.  

But it’s essential to know that the decision to accept your ‘follow’ request depends entirely on the person you’re after. So, if you’re using this trick or hack, it’s best to manage your expectations to avoid problems later on.  

Final Thoughts  

With more people using social media these days, the urge to access locked media and private accounts never stops. However, finding a way to get access to private Instagram profiles can be challenging if you don’t know where and how to begin. 

But by keeping the information mentioned above in mind, you’ll actually have a clear idea of what to do in order to view private IG posts easily and without notifying the owner about it.
