Instagram is one of the most popular social network sites in the world, allowing you to publish photos and short videos to share them with the whole word. Some time ago, the Stories section and the creation of albums were introduced into the application. Nowadays it is a leading brand advertising tool for many brands. Initially, it could only be used by users of iOS devices, but later the users of Android and Windows were able to download it too. In 2012 it was purchased by Facebook. Today we will review what are my options if I would like to find out who stalks my Instagram profile in 2018.
We live in the era of internet and social media networks are a big part of it. Everyday more and more people gain access to the internet, mobile internet plans, smartphones are getting cheaper and now even the poorest can afford them. This means that social networks are constantly expanding and gaining new userbase and many of these users flock to Instagram. Many of them aren’t aware of all the features offered by this network, many of them want to know whether it is possible to view private Instagram profiles without following them, and even more ask themselves everyday if it’s possible to get a list of every user who has viewed their Instagram profile. Today, we bring you the answer to the latter and it’s not a simple one. Officially no, you can’t, but unofficialy there are a few risky, and a few safe methods to see who viewed your Instagram videos, photos and even your profile.

So Yes, It Is Possible To See Who Views Your Instagram. But You Should Read Carefully.
We have reviewed various different applications who are always advertised as “the only real solution” that allows users to see who has visited their Instagram profile. But this is not the only thing that they have in common – the common denominator of these apps would be the fact that in most cases they simply don’t work as advertised. You cannot really use them to truly see who has viewed your Instagram profile. Our research suggets that all they do is pull a list of all your followers, select some of them, along with some other random profiles and show that list to you. As you can see it’s all fake. We cannot name these applications for legal reasons, but you probably already know which one’s I’m talking about. And there is hundreds, or thousands of them.
So here’s the real deal. We tested over ONE HUNDRED apps and only FIVE of them worked. Below you can find the best one according to our tests and the one I personally use to check who is stalking my Instagram:
Let me tell you something important. This is not an app for iOs, Android or Windows, but it works on all of these devices anyway. That’s because it is a modern multiplatform web application that is launched from your internet browser. This means that you don’t need to download it. That is a huge advantage and one of the main reasons we chose it as the winner. Thanks to this, we don’t have to risk the safety of our device by downloading some shady software that could contain some virus, or even turn it into a cryptocurrency miner, slowing it down significantly as a result.
It is quite easy to use, although it doesnt have the most userfriendly interface, but you don’t need to spend much time looking on it, maybe it’s not the prettiest website in the world, but it does the job it was designed for very well. All you need to do to check Who Viewed My Instagram Profile is enter your username in the appropriate box on the website and click on the Launch button. It’s quite simple, right?
- Launch the InstaStalkCheck web application
- Insert your username
- Click the Launch button and wait for results
Now relax, listen to some music, watch some youtube videos, make a coffee… Anything.. Just don’t close that website and wait patientely. According to the creators, depending on the current load on Instagram API servers, this proccess can take anywhere from a few seconds to 15 or even 30 minutes in the most extreme cases. It’s not up to them. It’s all up to Instagram and their servers.
The Impact Of Social Media And Stalkers On Our Lives
Social media have led to a revolution in building social bonds and establishing relationships with other people. Over time, it turned out that their use has an impact on our whole life. This is particularly felt today by young people, for whom social media is simply an integral part of their lives.
Psychologists have long been wondering whether (and if so, how) the use of social media affects our mental health. From time to time there are studies that describe, among other things, how the use of new technologies can be associated with mood disorders, whether it has a destructive effect on relationships with peers, or it affects the quality of life and the level of happiness. One of the biggest threats we face on social media platforms are stalkers which are sometimes very hard to identify and most platforms don’t help us with this issue since we cannot check who is viewing our profile, photos or videos. This is why it’s important for people to have access to applications such as the InstaStalkCheck mentioned above in order to identify who stalks their Instagram. This is the subject of the future, and therefore we are also describing further research on this issue.
Social media sometimes appear to be a crucial platform for young people and a basic form of contact with the world. It is not only a space in which one publishes self or comments, but also a form of communication, establishing relations with people whom the young person does not see, but who call friends or acquaintances. The power of social media and the power of their influence are also negative. We must not forget about cyberbullying, stalking and other negative experiences and dark social networking sites that affect people’s sense of security, self-esteem and emotional condition.
How To Keep Your Instagram Account Safe And Private
W have already written a lot about passwords – most important thing to remember is that you have to change them frequently and never reuse them. The fact is that one service can be a door to other social networks or email accounts, and since it is quite common for social networks to use the same usernames, passwords should be strong and unique.
Are you an exhibitionist? Do you like when people watch you all the time? If yes, please skip this paragraph. Surely like most people, you just want to share with those you really know. So if you want to keep your Instagram account secure, choose Private Account in the Options menu. I highly recommend this step to all parents who publish photos of their children to stay in touch with friends and family around the world. Unfortunately this does not protect your account from everyone. There are tools out there that allow stalkers to view your private profile without following it. However, you can use the application we reviewed above in order to see who viewed your Instagram profile and block everyone whose username you don’t recognize.
I’m not your parent, so I won’t tell you what and to whom you can share, but my goal is to tell you that some frightening crazy people can watch photos of your child or yours. They can tell you where you work and when and where you travel, or what extra activities your child is attending or interested in. I do not intend to frighten you, but I want to remind you that there are many bad people in the world. The use of public settings could be recommended to those who really need to be visible and have no way out.
