Instagram is not just about sharing your awesome pictures but also stalking people, and none of us are ashamed to admit it. From exes to new acquaintances that’s just how things roll on social media.
And if you could learn how to see a private account, you would, right? Well, join the club, because we did all the legwork for you so you don’t have to. In 2021, you can check everyone’s private account without following them. So, here’s how!
What is a private account
On Instagram, there are three types of accounts – private, public, and business. In private, only the people you allow to follow you can see your pictures.
If you have made your account public, anyone with your username can check your pictures. Creating a business account is to get access to more features like how many people saw the post and how many of those came to the profile, etc.
So normally, if you want to see someone’s post from a private account, you would have to follow them and once they accept your follow request, you can like and comment on them. You can also share those pictures on Instagram with other friends who are also following that same account.
The question is, how can you see someone’s images without sending them a request and we are here with answers.
How to see a private Instagram account in 2021
You probably did not need this tip but let’s start with the obvious trick. Create a fake account and put some scenery in the display picture. You can post some pictures daily of memes or nature or pets to look authentic.
Then do the most obvious part – send a request and cross your fingers and hope it gets accepted.
If that doesn’t work you can use a third-party application like IGLookup and start spying. All you will need for this is the username of the account you want to look at.
A simple way to look into someone’s private account
This solution is for most of the problems you encounter in your daily life – just Google it. Okay, that was an oversimplification.
Find the user ID of that person and copy-paste it into Google. Even if their account is private, Google will still have some pictures of them that you will be able to see.
