How To View Private Instagram Profile

Sometimes when you are using Instagram, you reach to some profiles that you eagerly want to see but they are private profiles. And, there is no such way that Instagram allows you to see a profile without sending a friend request to that particular profile that you wanted to see. Are there any other ways to view private Instagram profiles?

If you are a social media user you must be aware of two types of profiles- private profile and public profile. Private profiles are those profiles that are locked until you and the other party become friends on the social media platform just like on Instagram, and public  Profiles are those profiles that can be accessed without being friends or without sending a follow request.

You may have some people in your life with whom you do not want to continue the relationship or friendship so you don’t want them to see your photos and videos on Instagram, or maybe you don’t communicate in that terms which are required to show your photos and videos to someone, so privatizing your account is the best option to hide your pictures and videos from anyone whom you don’t want to see your profile. The people with who you are not very good friends or are complete unknowns can misuse your photos or videos for example they can make a fake account with your name and pictures and could misuse them.

How To View a Private Instagram Profile?

There are several other ways to view a private profile on Instagram. These ways are listed below-

1. You Can Directly Send Follow Request

The most simple and legitimate way to view a private profile on Instagram is to send a follow request to the person of whom you want to see the profile. Send a follow request by clicking the follow button to the account owner. With this, you can inform or notify the owner that you want to build a connection.

When you will click on follow button it will turn into requested which will notify the owner of the account that you want to follow that person, or you can also write the purpose of following that person to get your request approved. When the owner of that account will accept the following request and will follow you back then, you can see the entire profile of that person.

2. You Can Create A Fake Account

However, this will be the first option to view a private account on Instagram, but this method is not the quickest and safest method, but if you have decided to follow this approach, remember that this approach will not work immediately, you will have to invest some time in that fake account in uploading some content or pictures, gaining some followers, then send them a follow request from that fake account, this will help to build the trust of the person whom you want to follow.
