Instagram Stories, Reels, IGTVs, and more Insta-stuffs have become an integral part of our lives. It is here that we share small details from our everyday lives daily. Social media platforms nowadays, form an integral part of our lives today. Also, a part of this is the urge to see what others are up to. But what if we want to see that (usually via Stories) without them knowing we have seen it? And the answer is available in the form of simple workarounds you can follow to make that happen. So, read on to find out how to view Instagram stories without them knowing. Let’s get a head start with the topic right away then.
How to view Instagram stories without them knowing
So, as I said there are quite a few workarounds that you can follow to make this work. So, let’s get going with these methods and see them one by one. Get set and go !! 🙂
Use an Anonymous Account
Perhaps the best way to view another person’s Instagram Stories anonymously is to use an Instagram account that no one can easily identify. If you already have another account set up, it’s as simple as adding the account on Instagram and switching between the two whenever you want to view another person’s Instagram Stories without them knowing.
Use Airplane Mode
In this method, you need to put your phone into airplane mode. When your phone is in airplane mode; your device is not connected to the Internet, so Instagram cannot register that you have viewed someone’s Story.
Once your phone is in flight mode, you need to refresh your Instagram feed. After refreshing, tap on the Story and view it. Now you can turn your phone off flight mode and the person can not tell that you have viewed their Story.
This is the easiest hack you can use to view another person’s Instagram Story without them knowing about it. All you need to do is tap on the Story that is in the next line instead of the one you want to see secretly.
Next, tap on the story you are currently in to pause it. Once you do this, you need to swipe left to get to the story you want to see. Remember that you must do this slowly. After that, you will reach the middle of the two Instagram Stories; from here you can take a look at the Story you want to view without your name being there in the list of viewers.
Use browser extensions
You can also view other people’s Instagram Stories anonymously over the Internet. For this, you just need to install the Chrome extension ‘Chrome IG Story’ and you will be able to view the Stories without leaving a view.
Just download the extension, open the web version of Instagram and log in with your credentials. After that, you can view other people’s Instagram Stories without them knowing about it.
Blocking the Person (Don’t worry only 24 hours)
If you have already seen the story but do not want your name to appear on the list, you can block the person. Once the 24 hours are up, you can unblock and add the person as a friend. But this will be inconvenient. Once the person is blocked, your profile will be removed from the list of people who have viewed their posts.
Deactivating your Instagram Account
Another option, without blocking the person and adding them back, is to deactivate your account until the story is deleted. Your name will then be removed from the list of people who viewed the profile, as your profile has been temporarily deleted from Instagram. Once the story is deleted, you can log in to your Instagram account.
Using specialized websites
You can also visit the StorySaver.net website to view other people’s Stories anonymously. Just enter the Instagram address of the person ID you want to keep an eye on, and then tap the search icon. This will bring up the person’s Stories, which you can view and even download.
Using 3rd-party specialized applications
There are certain specific applications, built only for this purpose. Like the Repost Stories app for iOS users and the Blind Story app for Android users. You just need to download and install these apps from the respective App and Play stores. Thereafter, you can log into your account and continue viewing stories on different profiles, as you wish.
