How to spy on Instagram
Instagram is the most used social network at the moment, a consequence of the fact that it provides the user with numerous functions . In fact, through the well-known social network you can post and view photos and videos , upload stories during the day and also exchange messages with friends and family. The stories and messages on Instagram could attract the attention of many people, especially the “ curious ” who intend to spy on an Instagram account . There are several tactics to consider to do this, some basic (within everyone’s reach) others that require more attention and practicality . The aim of this guide is absolutely not to encourage spying actions (which I remember are absolutely illegal), but to inform the user and hope that everyone can protect themselves in effective way from the bad guys.
How to spy on Instagram
When we talk about spying on Instagram we can refer to a multitude of operations. As previously mentioned, you can try to spy on both messages , both posts of a private profile, and stories (anonymously) . To find out how you can do all this, all you have to do is continue reading and learn the main strategies (so you can defend yourself from the bad guys).
How to spy on other Instagram profiles
The intention of most people who intend to spy on Instagram profiles is precisely to view their photos. In fact, Instagram is the social media dedicated to photos and videos par excellence, so it is obvious that they attract the attention of most users. However, as you well know, there are two types of profiles on Instagram: the public profile and the private profile .
In the case of a public profile, the procedure to follow to see the contents of a particular profile is very simple , as it is accessible to everyone, even those who do not follow it.
Type the name of the person you are interested in (sometimes it is necessary to know the username precisely to get the desired results)
It is good to know that, the interested user will not be able to know if you have viewed his pro or not wire. However, the same is not the case with Stories , as Instagram records your view.
Spying on a private profile
If, on the other hand, the profile of your interest is private , then I warn you that the matter is more complicated. In fact, this type of profile, if not followed on request, does not allow the display of its posts and stories. If you intend, therefore, to rely on one of the many services that guarantees you a solution to this problem, I tell you right away that you are wasting time : these services, in most cases, do not work or they are paid . However, there are some little tricks that, even with a little luck, will allow you to find and spy on the profile of your interest:
- Check the hashtag : often users, when publishing a post, make use of hashtags (keywords that allow you to better target, in the case of Instagram, a post in a certain category). By searching for a specific hashtag (within the Tag section), you can locate the post relating to the person of your interest. I warn you that it is an operation that hardly guarantees good results, but it is still worth trying
- Check the geolocation : similarly to the use of hashtags, also that of geolocation might come in handy. Also in this case, it will be enough to carry out a brief search of the place you intend to examine (via the Places section) and, if you are lucky, you will find at least one post of the account of your interest
- Check others social : nowadays the use is more and more connected and it is possible to go back to an Instagram account also through other alternatives such as, for example, Facebook. For this reason it is useful to check if, on other social networks, the person in question may have shared an Instagram post
