Beware of deceptive applications. Want to know who visited your Instagram account?


Typically, many users look for a specific way to let them know who visited their personal accounts or see the content they post on Instagram, and here we mean watching content only without interacting with it.

They install many apps that claim to have accurate information about who has seen the content you post or visited your account, but the fact that Instagram doesn't have a clear way to do that, why?

The logical answer is to protect your privacy, because making this feature the worst way to violate the privacy of app users.

So, do third-party applications actually meet what they promise?

If you do a quick search in the App Store or Google Play stores, you'll find dozens of third-party apps that promise to know who visited your Instagram account or see your posts without interacting with them, but the fact is that most of these apps are fake and deceptive.

Any app that claims to do so is "deceptive and illegal" instead "probably performs a very simple process by pulling random usernames and creating a different list every time you open the app to see who visited your personal account or read your posts, and in fact the app tracks you and actually collects your data for later sale to data companies to target targeted ads," says Alex Head, chief r&d at SecurityScoreCard.

But that doesn't mean that all apps are deceptive or false, according to Business Insider, one of the users' favorite apps for more information about their followers or non-followers is Followmeter, which is available free of charge in Google Play and App Store.

At the same time, however, the app does not explicitly tell you who visited your account or read your posts, and instead provides additional metrics, such as: who canceled your follow-up, or who follows you, and these are data that you can manually verify, so it's likely to be accurate.

But does Instagram offer another way to find out who visited your account?
One legitimate way to get clear and reliable information about who visited your account or read your posts is to convert your Instagram account to a Business Account, Creator Account, or Creator Account.

You can access clear insights about your account, such as: an overview of how many accounts you've viewed, accounts that interacted with that content, how many people saved your individual posts, but you won't be able to see exactly who visited your account, and at least you can get more information that way.
Instagram Stories

Instagram stories let you see people who've seen your story, where you can click on the icon at the bottom of your story to view a list of people who've seen it.

Although there are rumors that this list is displayed in the order of people who interact with your content the most, as most people who have visited your account will be at the top of the list, Julian Gutman, an Instagram official, denied this, stating that the priority list "is given to the accounts you interact with most, contrary to what was previously rumored."

Finally, there's no way you can see who visited your account or viewed your posts and didn't interact with them in the Instagram app, which is good for keeping users private.
