if something is private then it’s private …if its not private then it’s public
Instagram understood this public and private thing in October 6 2010 …
and still maintained same definition of private public

hope you understand too :slight_smile:

There is a solution. I’m sure it exists. let’s see who can find out earlier. lol

then it would be a bug bounty reward for sure :thinking: :grinning:


Where there is a will , there is a way. :blush:

Solution One:

There are ways to view a private users profile. One of the solutions is obvious. Just follow the private user. When you follow a private user, the user will receive a request. When the request is received, the private user has the option to either deny, approve or ignore the follow request. If they deny the following request you will not be able to follow the user unless you request again and the user approves. If they approve your request you will follow the user and you will be able to view everything on their profile.

Another option to view a private Instagram account does not require you to follow the user. This is the method that few people have actually figured out. If you want to view a private users Instagram account without following the user, you will need to go to the “Activity” tab on the bottom of the screen. This is the button that looks like a speech bubble with a heart in it.

When you tap this button on the bottom of the screen you will be presented with the activity on your posts. This is not where you want to be. At the top of the screen you will see the words “You” and “Following”. You will want to tap “following”.

When you tap “following” you will be presented with the activity of the people you are following. You will see posts they like, posts they comment on and so on. This is where you will be able to view private users accounts. If you tap a users picture that one of your friends liked, you will then be able to get to their full profile; even if it is private. You will be able to see their posts, their followers, who they follow, and any pictures the user is tagged in. All of this will be visible without following the user. You will only be able to do this if one of the users that you already follow likes one of the private users pictures. This is currently the only way to view a private profile without following the user.

How to view Private Instagram

If you would like to see the photos and videos of a private profile, there are two methods that you can use.

Method 1

The first way is to use our Private Instagram Viewer. This tool uses API calls to unlock any private profile on Instagram instantly. It’s a revolutionary new technology, and takes about 10 seconds. Better yet, it’s completely free.

Method 2

In case the above method doesn’t work (it usually does) the only other way you can view a private profile is to get accepted as a follower. As mentioned previously, you will only be able to see the content if the account accepts your follow request.

In order to get accepted, you should make your profile look as impressive as possible. You have to make the recipient think that you are a very important person, perhaps even a celebrity. A good way to do this is to upload impressive content. Perhaps a new profile photo standing next to someone’s ferrari! Anything to make yourself seem affluent and important.


To conclude, there are definitely ways to view an Instagram account that has been set to private, as we outlined above. However, you should be wary that there are many websites and apps claiming they have the answer. You should be carefully about these. Many of them will ask you to pay to view the profile, or give access to your Instagram account which is very risky. Many services will even ask you to complete surveys or other tasks which just take time and get nowhere. The truth is, it requires a lot of technical capabiltiy to view a private profile, which these services just don’t have. So, don’t waste your time on these services that don’t work. Use the methods that we have outlned above, and you should be well on your way to getting access to that amazing profile that you would like to see so much! The methods can also be applied to different social media platforms, which is a bonus.

Can You See a Private Instagram Account?

“ How to view private Instagram accounts ” is one of the most talked-about things lately.

If we’re writing this article and if you’re reading it (we do and you do) then we can say a lot of people are curious about this subject.

Especially after people break up with their lovers, they can be extremely curious about what and how they’re doing. Or instead of sending a follow request to someone we don’t particularly like, we can try to see their content in other ways.

The curiosity to see what is in a private Instagram account is high all over the world. Next part of this article, we will tell you about how to view private Instagram accounts, or if it’s possible at all.

How to Break In: Private Accounts

If Instagram cares this much about its’ privacy, is it possible to see the inside of a private Instagram account ? As we look at it from today’s perspective, the answer is no. I know, it’s sad.

The first time when Instagram was just developing, it had some openings. Using some ways, you could see people’s private accounts. Using a very simple method, you could see the contents of the private Instagram account. The method was:

  1. First, you reach the Instagram account from the desktop.
  2. Then you search the name of the Instagram account you’re curious about.
  3. You enter the private account and click on “show more” segment.
  4. Even though the account is private, all the posts of the account will be shown.

Instagram realized this security flaw and got ahead of it. So there is no way for you to view private Instagram accounts now.

Apps to View Private Instagram Accounts

We’ve read many articles on apps to view private Instagram accounts.

It’s possible to find this kind of application everywhere. But do they really show private accounts? The main place where these apps come from the USA.

When we read the descriptions of these apps, they say it’s possible to view private Instagram accounts .

Then you believe in hopes of being able to view the profile you want to see and start using the application. But most of these are for free, they’re not free! You pay an amount and download the app, and the result is a big nothing. You only end up losing your money and getting nothing in exchange.

What Can I Do to View Private Instagram Accounts?

To view private Instagram profiles , no sketchy app or way is efficient. But there are some basic methods to use at this stage.

At the result of these procedures, the choice to accept it or not is up to the Instagram profile’s owner. Simple ways to view private Instagram accounts :

Starting a Fake Instagram Account

This method is used frequently. When you start a fake Instagram account and send a follow request to the desired profile owner, there’s a chance of them accepting it. Best to try your luck!

When you’re starting a fake account, it’s better to have the gender of the fake account matching whoever you want to follow. Or you can make the fake account seem like it matches the person’s interests.

You should have some followers before sending a follow request to the person. Most people take notice of if the request sender is a fake profile or a real one.

To a survey that’s been done, it shows that women create the fakest accounts to follow and stalk other profiles. But this doesn’t mean men don’t stalk. They also do this.

Sending a Private Message to the Person

If you tried the method above this and it didn’t work out, you can move on to this method. Sincerity is key here. Write a compelling text providing information on why you want to follow this person.

If the person gets affected by it after reading it, they will accept the request. Because when people get a follower request, they get doubtful. If you write a text, at least the reason for you wanting to follow them will be clear.
