Social Media is a very interesting place. You can see what people are doing anywhere in the world and communicate with them. That is unless they have a private account. We have all been in a situation where we are on the outside looking in at a private Instagram profile. This is an extremely frustrating place to be especially when you do not want to follow the profile but are desperate to see the posts that are sealed within. Below I will share the most effective ways for you to see the posts on a private Instagram profile without following the account.
How to See a Private Instagram Account Without Following 2018
In the past we have seen some very interesting ways for Instagram users to “hack” a private Instagram or use a third party software to gain access to a private Instagram account. These methods are way outdated and could use a refresher. I mean, its 2018, time to stop acting like cavemen.
If you want to see a private Instagram account without following it you are going to need to think a little outside the box. One of the previous methods that could be used to see a private Instagram profile has been spoiled by recent Instagram updates. Now we are down to really only three methods that will help you see a private Instagram account this year. Here are my top three ways to see a private Instagram in 2018.
Method 1 – Use A Fake Account to See a Private Instagram Profile
The first method I am going to share with you to see a private Instagram profile is to create a fake Instagram profile, or Finsta, to gain access to the private account. People create fake Instagram accounts for a variety of different reasons. Some do it for a private place to share certain content while others may use it in a sort of sneaky way; like using it to follow private accounts that they don’t want to follow with their primary account.
When you make a fake Instagram account the goal is to make it as basic and vague as possible so that the account can be used to follow a wide variety of private accounts. If you specifically make the account to follow one person, then when you try to use the account to follow others the follow request could be denied, slashing your chances of seeing the posts in the private Instagram account. You must also be sure to make your Finsta believable. If your account is obviously fake it is very unlikely that the private profiles you want to see will not accept the follow request. In summary, make sure your account appeals to a wide variety of people, and be sure that the account is believable.
On to method numero 2…
Method 2- Third Party Websites, Software, or Applications
If you need to get into a private Instagram account but do not want to risk blowing your cover by using a Finsta, another option you have is third party software. This software can be in the form of an application for your mobile device or a website. Although, some of these services can be a bit sketchy and actually result in your Instagram account being hacked, other services are actually well put together and will show you the posts in a private Instagram account. Even though there are a number of great services that allow you to hack someone’s Instagram account, I would only use one as a last resort. It is hard to tell which sites are legitimate and which sites will use the information that you provide for malicious purposes.
Method 3- Take a Deep Breath and Follow Request to Follow The Private Instagram
I know this is sort of a dumb answer to the question of “how can I see a private Instagram account?” however, it is important that you think about why you do not want to just follow the private account. Is it because you are nervous and do not want the person to know that you want to follow them? Or is it because you simply do not want the person to know that you want to know what they are up to. Either way it is probably a good idea to just follow them. Unless it is going to cause drama equivalent to the end of the world, it is best to just follow the person. In many cases they will happily accept and maybe even follow you back. But if it is going to cause drama, but you just want to do a little snooping. Trying to see their account without following them is probably your best bet.
Whenever you try to get into a private Instagram account without following it is important that you make sure you are doing it for the right reasons and that it won’t make you angry or upset. But then again, it is your life and you make your own decisions so have at it.
