How to View a Private Instagram Account 2021


View a private Instagram account through these easy ways and some private Instagram account viewer apps that work.

People let you see what they want you to see. We respect privacy and all that, but sometimes we just have to make sure. An example is when you meet someone. You he’s the one but something doesn’t sit right.

You check his social media accounts, and there’s nothing much you’ve found because his Instagram or Facebook accounts are locked. Or you come across an eye-catching photo on a website. When you click on it, it redirects you to an IG account that is private.

So, here’s what you can do to view a private Instagram account.

1. Ask permission by sending a follow-request.

Following is not an issue if you’re an acquaintance with the user. Freely click that follow request and then wait for a couple of days or weeks to be accepted.

If you’re not friends, your follow request might get denied. However, this is the most decent and hassle-free you can do to view a private IG account. 

2. Create a fake account to view a private Instagram account.

When you follow accounts using your personal IG, you’re also letting strangers view your life. And, you’re not comfortable with that if you’re an equally private person. They can also deny your follow-request using your account just because it’s you.
