Do you want to know who recently viewed your Instagram profile? Do you want to find out about your unknown stalkers who are constantly checking your profile?
Well, it is not as easy as it may look at first, but it is possible to find out.
In this article I will explain whether it is possible to see who viewed your Instagram profile & how to do so, so keep reading further.
Let’s get started!
Can you see who viewed your Instagram profile?
That’s a tricky question! Instagram does not provide statistics who recently viewed your Instagram profile or who viewed it the most. So, you can’t directly know who is stalking on your Instagram profile.
However, there are other ways to find out some information about your Instagram account viewers. And I am not talking about third-party apps as they are no good for checking your recent Instagram profile viewers. I will talk more on third-party apps in another paragraph.
The best option to check your Instagram account viewers is by using Instagram stories feature. You see, Instagram shows the list of your recent Instagram stories viewers, so that’s the best way to find out about your stalkers. As your profile stalkers are usually viewing your uploaded content and stories altogether.
They don’t even need be your followers to be on that list. So, if you haven’t been posting Instagram stories earlier, you need to start uploading them from now on! Keep reading and you will learn how to find the list of users who viewed your Instagram stories.

How to see who viewed your Instagram stories?
If you would like to know the users who viewed your Instagram stories, just follow these simple steps:
- Go to Instagram using your mobile (via App or directly via website) and login to your account;
- Click on any of your stories and swipe up on the screen;
- Now you will be able to see the full list of users who viewed that particular story.
Done! There are some rumours, that by viewing this list you can see who is viewing your Instagram profile and stories the most – meaning that users displayed on top of the list are the most active stalkers. However, this is far from truth. The person displayed first on the list is not necessary your most active stalker.
Actually, users on this list are ranked the other way – users you see on the top of the list are the ones you engage with the most. For example, if you constantly chat with your best friend, then your best friend will probably be displayed on top of the list if he viewed your story.
Although the list doesn’t show your most frequent stalkers, however, you can still see who views your Instagram stories. Upload stories daily and check this list daily, then you will know who is viewing your stories daily, consequently, you will know your most loyal profile visitors and story viewers.
Keep in mind that list of your story viewers is available only for 24 hours. It gets automatically hidden after 24 hours, so hurry up to check that list!

Using third-party apps to see who viewed your Instagram profile
There are tons of third-party apps, both free and paid, which you can find on the iOS or Android app store. They claim that they can tell who viewed your Instagram profile.
However, don’t be fooled by such statements, as none of these apps work! They mainly give you random list of users tricking you into believing that they viewed your profile the most.
These third-party apps don’t get any additional permissions from Instagram’s API to check who viewed your Instagram profile, so this fact alone is enough for you to understand that these apps don’t really work. If that is not enough, check not just star ratings of the app, but commentary reviews too. Unfortunately, there will be mostly negative reviews.
