How to view Instagram stories anonymously

Are you intrigued by the idea of being able to creep on someone’s Instagram story without them knowing? It’s actually easier to view Instagram stories anonymously than you might think! There are a few different ways you can go about it and we’ll break them down for you here. 

Instagram has become one of the most popular social media platforms of this generation since it’s an easy way for people to stay connected with their friends, family, and favorite celebrities. Being able to view Instagram stories anonymously should be an option we automatically have when we create accounts on the platform but instead, there are other avenues to try, such as viewprivy for example.

How to view Instagram stories anonymously

One of the best ways you can easily watch someone’s Instagram story is by Google searching the term “Instagram story viewers” on any browser whether it’s Safari, Google Chrome, or something different. Several different websites will pop up including Instadp & Instastories. 

Utilizing sites like this will make it super easy for you to view Instagram stories anonymously without anyone knowing it’s you. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to view Instagram stories posted from private Instagram accounts. After a story has expired, it will no longer be available using this method either. If someone posts something to the story using the “close friends” option, you won’t be able to see those either.

Create a Finsta account 

Most people who are savvy with social media lingo know exactly what a Finsta is, but for those who don’t, it’s simply the words fake & Insta combined. If you have one of these accounts, it means you have a secret second account that isn’t attached to you in any way. Basic Finsta accounts usually don’t include your real name, your real pictures, or any of your real friends attached. 

The reason people create fake Instagram accounts is so they can look at people they’re curious about without anyone knowing. This is one of the most common ways people creep on Instagram stories without outing themselves. 

There’s a way that you can be caught when it comes to creating a fake Instagram account though so you have to be extra careful! If you sign up using your actual phone number, other people will notice your Finsta account popping up through their phonebook syncing with the app.

Utilize airplane mode

According to Instagram users on Reddit, another way you can anonymously view Instagram stories is by waiting for stories to load up and then turning off your Wi-Fi, cellular network, or utilizing airplane mode. When you open the story you want to see, it’ll play but your name won’t show up on them for the other person to see. This method can be pretty tricky and isn’t one that always perfectly works, unfortunately.

Wait until stories are added to highlight reels

If the person you’re curious about always posts their stories to their highlight reels, one of the smartest things you can do is wait until they add their stories to the highlight reel to watch after they’ve expired. Instagram users are no longer able to see names of who’s watching their stories on their highlight reels. Ever since Instagram implemented this change, users can’t even see how many people have watched their stories!

If you know your crush loves to post their gym workouts on their “Fitness” highlight reel every day, just wait until their daily stories expire and take a peek at them the next day in the highlight reel section of their profile. They’ll never be able to know you watched — unless they download a third-party app that can possibly expose all the names to them down the line.
