Who stalks my Instagram: How to see who views your Instagram profile

Don’t you wonder to see who views your Instagram profile? Let’s be honest, if you are an active Instagram user, you probably wonder, “Is there a way to see who viewed my Instagram profile?” or “Who stalks my Instagram?”.

Instagram does not provide an in-house tool to see who views your Instagram profile because of privacy issues. Let’s consider that every act of you on Instagram are being reported. Such a service would alienate you from using Instagram.

Anyway, you may ask yourself that is there a way to see who views my Instagram profile? It is a bit complicated, though. While some methods work to an extent, some don’t operate.

Can you really see who viewed your Instagram profile manually?

Unfortunately, it is not possible unless someone is commenting, liking your posts, or sharing them simply.

For sure, Instagram tracks its users’ habits, what content they are interested in. However, Instagram does not have any feature to deliver to you to see who views your Instagram profile unless they contact you directly.

However, if you want to take some analytic data about your followers and the engagement you get, shifting to Instagram Business Account would help to some degree. Even though it does not see who views your Instagram profile, Instagram Business can help you understand how your account is performing on Instagram.

Moreover, you may consider using a third-party tool to see who viewed your Instagram profile.

How to see who views your Instagram with third-party tools

Nevertheless, there are a bunch of third-party apps that come with the claim to see who views your Instagram profile. However, most of those apps don’t work, and they are merely a hoax.

However, there is an app that you may give a try, FollowMeter. It is which is available on iOS and Android devices. Even though it doesn’t provide you with the name of the accounts who view your Instagram profile, it gives some statistics. So, it shows you who unfollowed you or who is not following back.
