Social media power has grown so far that now everyone uses many different profiles on different social media websites/apps. A big part of the draw of social media platforms, especially visually-centered ones like Instagram, is being able to see others’ lives in pictures. Instagram where it has been popular for photos, but many people have grieve about not being able to view some of the profiles as they are not public and are only restricted to be viewed only by the followers.
Although this is a good move that Instagram has taken because it will prevent the images of the people be leaked who need privacy, but many profiles have taken this in a wrong way and used the private feature to get more followers when the followers share their must sharable posts to the friends. Today we are going to give you some of the ways in which you can view the profiles of Instagram which are private, but do note that these methods are not legal, although we will include some legal ways also, hence you must try these at your own risk.
What is Instagram Private Account?
Instagram allows users to make their profile hidden from the public. Only the requested people like friends can view their profile. Many people make their profile private for various personal reasons. Some people don’t like to show their personals to public visibility. This is the main reason behind making their profiles private.
1. Ask the person directly
The best way to do any such thing is by simply asking the person in charge to accept your request so that you can view the Instagram profile. We have included this because this is the best way in a legal sense if you want to have a look at the pictures of a private account. There are a couple of steps for the same in order to reach the person which are as follows:
- Search for the profile of the person whose Instagram ID is private, and then send them a follow request. If you will send the request, he/she will get a notification that you are looking to message them or view their pictures. This is the best way and the most humble way to proceed.
- If the owner of the account ignores your request or by chance was not able to remember you, then you can use the private message to contact him/her this way the person will read and recall you, or can even think about accepting your request again.
- If you are having an account which is also private, and your name is something like “Angel Julie” then the person will think twice about accepting your account request, or might even not accept it.
2. Create a Fake ID
If you are looking to get into some fishy stuff, and want to spy around your enemy then a fake account is the best alternative. I know this is not the right way to get into someone’s privacy and stalk them but is the only way where you can legally get into privacy. These are the steps with which you can create a fake ID or fake account and get into someone’s privacy and see their profile in depth.
- Create a female Instagram profile, as most female profiles are hidden in a private fashion hence the other person can accept your request. Mostly if you are going with a fake male account then do note that you must use a name which is familiar to the person so that there are chances of him/her accepting your follow request.
- The fake ID must not look fake at all, i.e. it must have a couple of photos of the girl you have made the account of, as if the profile is not having any followers or any posts then there is a huge amount of chances that the profile in question is fake, and you will lose your chance of getting the following request accepted.
- Also, you can make the account private as the person will be curious to know about the profile from which he/she got the following request.
- Do note that before sending the following request to the main person, make sure that you have around 40–50 followers so that your account does look genuine
- Also do note here also you can try the above steps in step 1, like sending the request, then sending a message so that your request can be accepted at a faster pace.
3. Try Instagram Profile Viewer Tools
These tools are the last option if you fail in the above methods, these tools are least reliable and you will have to struggle a lot in making these work. Most of the tools are fake and you will surely be struggling when you are looking to view a private account. If you are using any site they will keep a track of your IP address and even fetch cookies so they can get all your personal details. So do not use these tools to do something illegal. Here are the steps to use Instagram Profile Viewer tool:
- Use any of the bellow given Instagram profile viewer apps:
- Once you open these you will have to insert your Instagram profile, do note that you can even use a fake account for this which is the most preferable one.
- As you are done with all the basic steps you can view and download the images of a private account.
- These are just a couple of websites there are even more websites and some apps with which you can view all the private profiles of a website.
These are some of the ways in which you can easily view the Profiles which are hidden, but none of the ways can be promising you 100% guarantee. Do note that you must not be using any of the above ways for any illegal use. Viewing anyone’s privacy is not a good thing and hence you must be humble enough to ask for the permission to view the images.
