Instagram is the most widely used social networking sites and also the fastest growing in the world. It is attracting more and more users and hence the numbers of the user are increasing day by day. When we are surrounded by so many users around there’s a chance that we would also face certain problems. The one who has a public profile will always be concerned about the people visiting their profile. Hence we should always be aware of who is keeping an eye on us so that we can be aware of any mishappening that could take place. Who can be your potential viewer? Your stalker, a normal so-called friend who is jealous of you or a fan who wants to secretly follow you and your lifestyle.
Who so ever the stalker is, one must always be aware of who is spying you so that you do the needful step required like blocking the person if you find him dangerous or harmful in any way.
It’s annoying to have such stalkers who don’t care to follow but at the same time want to go through your feeds.
To our disappointment, Instagram doesn’t allow us to know who has visited your profile. It doesn’t have in-app functionality to track your profile visitors, yet.
But we can still find that out using the third app alternatives as they commit it.
Google search provides plenty of such online tools or third party app to do so both for Android and IOS. But none of them work well. They display fake names so yes always be aware of such apps. So it’s not advisable to use such apps to get the required information.
Giving them your information is of no use as it will get access to your profile and can even be dangerous. Instagram API does not share any such information with such third party apps which no doubt will be more dangerous than the stalkers.
So would advise you not to log in or give your information to such apps and if you have done so in the future don’t fail to invalidate such access immediately.
Don’t be disappointed as this is something for your safety but at the same, we can suggest you one way through which you can get catch hold of such Instagram users.
This feature allows you to view the users who have viewed your story and it is pretty obvious that your stalker will always view your story to know what’s happening in your life (Exception: If they have read this article)
We will navigate you to the way it’s done. All you have to do is-
- Open your story
- Press the eyeball icon.
- The list of Instagram users who have visited your profile will neatly display.
- Including the one who is not your followers.
- You can then tap on the little cross icon that will block them from view your future stories.
One can also switch to a private account if you feel there’s a need to do so.
So with this, we have come to the end of this article. We will again warn you to be aware of such fraudulent apps and yes, don’t only be a user, Be a Wise User.
