Instagram is a popular place to upload and share photographs with others in your network. From family pictures to vacation photos, share anything on the social site to update followers with your latest snaps and collect their feedback as you go.
Create beautiful Instagram stories or tag your family members, friends, colleagues, etc to get maximum exposure on them. The image-sharing app lets users showcase their photographic talents and find new opportunities easily. But on the other hand, public or regular Instagram accounts may create headaches for some of the profile owners. Do you know how?
Some people have a tendency to spy on others’ life and activities. That’s why many social media users make their accounts private. Similar to Facebook and Twitter, people can create private accounts on Instagram also. A private Instagram account will hide all its photos and videos from the non-followers.
It will be just like this,
They can view a private account holder’s profile picture and biography. Nothing else. No photos. No videos. What will do if you are curious to view a private Instagram account of anyone?
Today, we’ll share 7 different ways to view Instagram private account photos and videos.
1. Send a follow request
This is the first and legitimate way to spy on an Instagram private account. Send a follow request to the owner. Click the follow button to notify him/her about your interest to build a connection.
Once your request is sent, the Follow button will turn to Requested mode. Wait for the profile owner’s decision. If it is a positive response, you can view their Instagram photos and videos as usual. Otherwise, go to the next step.
2. Create a fake Instagram profile
What will do if the owner is not accepting your follow request that is sent from your original Instagram profile? Probably, he/she is not interested in your mutual connection and share posts with you thereafter. So you can create a fake Instagram profile to disguise as someone else and trick the private Instagram holder.
Make sure that the fake profile is in a female’s name and carries a genuine profile picture (not an actress). Do you know why? About 80% of social media fake accounts have female names as people will respond to such accounts faster than the male accounts and even positively. So there is a high chance of getting approved your follow request on Instagram.
Don’t forget to make your fake account private which will encourage the target profile owner to spy on your posts. Also, upload some photos to create a feeling that it’s a genuine profile. Send a follow request to the Instagram private account and see how he responds.
3. Use Private Instagram Viewer Apps
There are several private Instagram viewer tools available online.
PrivateInsta is a popular app to view private Instagram profiles without signing into your account. It supports Windows, OSX, iOS, and Android operating systems and allows you to browse photos on any private Instagram account anonymously.
Visit PrivateInsta and you will see a text box to enter the username of a private Instagram account. Do that and click on Submit. Wait for a few moments. PrivateInsta will access the target account and download photos automatically. But you need to complete a survey to view them.
InstaSpy is another free private Instagram viewer app. It is simple and easy to use.
Hit ‘See Private Profiles Now’ button and enter an Instagram profile URL in the text box that you want to view secretly. Choose what to view from the drop-down box like everything, photos, likes, and comments. It also allows you to download data in .zip and .giz file formats.
InstaLooker is a widely used spy app for Instagram. Click ‘Spy now’ button and paste an Instagram username to begin.
It will fetch respective feeds and lets you view or even download photos from any private Instagram account in minutes. Unfortunately, it will force you to complete surveys to reach the last stage. Even though, I am not sure how much it is successful to retrieve data from a private Instagram profile.
Unlike the above-mentioned online tools, InstaRipper is an Instagram spy app for desktop and smartphones. Download it to your device and enter the username of a private Instagram account to hack.
Click the Unlock Private Profile button to decrypt data and open Instagram in your default browser.
Instagram Private Profile Viewer is the last in our suggestions. It is free and allows you to hack Instagram private accounts quickly.
Enter an Instagram username on the homepage and choose how many photos you want to view. It will connect to Instagram servers and retrieve photos in less than a minute. But once again, you have to complete surveys to access the downloaded data.
There are several websites that allow you to download the latest movies and songs, premium WordPress themes and plugins, etc for free. Private Instagram Viewer Apps will also work in the same way. They may contain some spyware and affect your online security. So it’s better to stay away from such cracking tools.
If you are really keen to view a private Instagram profile, go with the first two ways mentioned in this post. Try to follow the account and send a private message to inform the owner who you are. If he satisfies with your details, the request will be approved. It means you can view posts made by the user safely.
