How to View Private Instagram.



Instagram has quite a story I must say, to begin with, it's a social network centred around sharing photos and videos.

Over the years, it has gone constant updates and changes, and so right now it's probably the most advanced, and socially successful photo-video sharing platform out there on this planet.

Even if this post is centred around helping you to view any private Instagram profile, without using any software or online scams, let's still have a story.

The $1 Billion Story…

Oh hey, what about a little story before we actually dive into what this post is about? Of course, I'm going to show you how you can view private Instagram profile photos online, without spending a penny or buying a tool of course, but still…a story isn't an entirely bad idea for starters right?

So, there is a guy who has a 9-5 job, like a lot many of you ( and he wants to ditch it, like a lot many of you). Isn't really the sharpest nail in the toolbox, but is passionate. Passionate about codes, new ideas and stuff like that.

I'm pretty sure you're familiar. So, what this little guy does is, he starts learning how to code, after his work hours.

Spends a couple of months with the codes, and tries to build a new app, called Bourbon. Well, wasn't a great success. So this guy goes back to the source code, and prototypes a newer version, with more details and better User-interface, centred around “photo-sharing”.

Well, with a bit of marketing and the app's potential, that little guy who learned to code after his work hours get funded for $500000. And from there, the journey wasn't that hard. Probably you already know what this story was about, right?

Well yeah, that's how Instagram was founded, and that little guy is called Kevin Systrom in case you didn't know.

That little photo-sharing app was acquired for $1Billion by Facebook, has around 400 million monthly active users! And around 75 million daily users! Now that, is some success isn't it?

Now, that's a lot of users, and with lot's of users, there comes the problem of “lots of stupidity” to deal with too, right?

So there might be moments when you might want to restrict our profile, make it private so that only a selected view can see your photos and videos! After all, why on earth should the whole world witness your moments and memories, right?

What does Private Instagram Mean?

Well, as I said, Facebook is quite strict when it comes to its user's security. And so, as soon as it acquired Instagram, it integrated the option of making profiles private.

What this basically means is, only those who have been allowed by you, as your followers, can have access to your stuff, including photos, videos or whatever it might be.

That's a reasonably great option when it comes to privacy freaks, at least I am one. It's better to know your stalkers, right?

With the private option, you'd have a clear list of all the members who are in your profile, and thus you'd know that your content is visible only to them and not to some random guy 83243 miles away from you, and that's a great relief.

Well, first let's work around how to make your Instagram private, right?

How to Make Your Instagram Private:

All you need to make your Instagram private is three taps on your device.

The first tap is needed on your device to get to your “profile” section.

Secondly, you need to tap on the “edit your profile” option.

Now just slide the button to “on”.

That's all you had to do. Well, now your profile's private!

That good for those who are concerned about their privacy. But what if “you” are the 83243 miles away random guy, who is just desperate to get into someone's private profile? Or maybe their neighbour having a secret crush?

Whatever your need might be, there must be a solution to help so that you can view private Instagram photos online, right?

How to View Private Instagram Photos :

Let me make something clear before we start this. There just is “no” tool or software out there, which will automatically do it for you. Take it from a guy who has been in the security research field since 13.

Do you think Facebook is running a multi-billion dollar corporation, with such security loopholes that any Tom-Dick or Harry can write a couple of lines of codes and get into Facebook algorithms?

And even if someone did, Facebook would pay him enough money to patch the glitch, that they won't be selling that software for 50-60 or couple 100$'s online anyway.

That being said,  viewing a private Instagram isn't a “Walk to moon” kind of impossible task either. What I'll be sharing here is a simple Social Engineering technique, simple, but effective.

After all, we are all humans, and trust me it's much easier to decode humans, then decoding codes.

So we will be needing a new Instagram account to view the private profiles, it's not something very complicated, just take care of the below precautions and it'll work out.

  • Create a new Instagram account! You already might have one, but create a new one.
  • Avoid linking cell numbers to the profile.
  • Create a “female” profile. No matter your target is a male or female, everyone falls for females.

Now, let's work on making the profile look professional and legit.

  • First, make sure the profile is Public right now.
  • Upload some natural looking, real pictures into the account. Means, you might take a picture of your friend ( with their permission of course), or if you know the target manually, then just use any of your online friends' pictures (again with their permission), as your target might be knowing your real friends.
  • Now, try to get some followers from Fiverr. You can normally buy 30-40,000 followers for as low as $5. Just check out Fiverr.  $5 isn't a great amount of money, that's probably less than what you spend on coffee daily. But if you want it to be a totally “investment-free” procedure, you can also work on getting some real followers, which might take a bit of time.
  • Once you reach a good number of followers, turn the profile to “private”.( You can refer to the above section if you're confused about how to do it. )
  • Now, just head over to your target profile, and follow them.

Once they accept it, which they will, because you have a handsome number of followers, real looking images, and are a female, I don't think I need to tell you that your mission is accomplished, right?

Although, it's not the best practice to do on a social network, it's not a crime either. Unless of course, you're duplicating someone's identity by using their images without their permission. So make sure you don't indulge in such activities, and you're free to experiment the way out.

How to Find Out Who Unfollowed Me on Twitter



A common question striking each of our minds is the paradigm shift of the social media freaks gradually from having accounts on Facebook and doing nothing to creating a Twitter handle and doing almost double the activity on it.

Yes!! The world is now moving towards the better and of course, we will also adjust to the best if there happens to be one in the future. So, why Twitter? And, why not something other than that!

The simple answer to this is you always tend to adopt the platform, which gives you precise information, and also expressing something in 160 words isn’t just an activity, but it’s also a skill one could have.

The craze and need for having a Facebook business page or a brand page, which was extremely high in the early 21st century, is now replaced by having a simple Twitter handle (for example @yourbusiness)

And this is basically why you should be worried about who unfollows you on your Twitter handle.

Many Twitter users have this question in mind – “How to find out who unfollowed me on Twitter?”

Twitter does not give you any direct tool or a function on the platform which helps you check who unfollows you, though it does have a feature in analytics to help you understand the increase in the number of followers, there exist a few tools, which will help you find out who has unfollowed you.

Well! Doesn’t this sound like a good option for data tools? Yes, it does, as it stands critical to know why someone does not want to be with you anymore. In the business sense, it helps you identify the expectations of your target customers and mistakes if you have committed any.

Analyzing your audience and understanding them is definitely the key to success, which everyone wants to master.

In this article, I will broadly discuss the tools available online to perform this activity of finding who followed you and I will also guide you with the basic guidelines of how you can use this tool.

Who Unfollowed Me On Twitter?

“Who unfollowed me” is a website which helps you keep a track of the un-followers. This is one of the best ways if you are wondering how to unfollow everyone on Twitter. It also provides you with a plethora of services apart from the main one being discussed in this article.

Not Following Me Back

Following and following back is a common etiquette on Twitter and users do unfollow if you do not follow them back. This tool allows you to easily look through and keep a track on those people who do not follow you back.

I'm Not Following Back

Following more people on Twitter has always been something that gets more followers for you. This tool also helps you get a list of people who are following you, and you are not. This helps you follow the people back and lessen the chances of losing followers.

We Follow Each Other

Your engagement on Twitter increases as a result of increased visibility when you follow someone and the same when someone follows you back.

This is the best way to increase and strengthen your Twitter presence and visibility. This tool provides you with the list of people you follow, and they also would be following you back.

Who I've Blocked?

Spam can never be controlled and so has it been with Twitter as well. With loads of bots and services online, which claim to get you followers on Twitter for some money or activity, actually, end up spamming your handle.

What do you do then? You tend to start blocking people; in the process, you might end up blocking someone whom you did not want to. This tool gives you the option of looking at all the blocked users.

Who I've Muted?

It really gets tough when you are following someone you like or a public figure or your idol, and the same person continuously keeps tweeting about a subject or an event you are least interested in. So what do you do now? You have the option to mute the person for a while.

But can you really keep a track of the number of people you have muted? Who unfollowed me gives you the option to see the list of the people you have muted. Maybe you would want to unmute them back again.

Pending Follow Requests

Are you conservative? Do you want to be social, but not that social? I am sure you would then have a private Twitter account. At times, it gets tough to have a check on the number of people who have requested to follow you. Unfollowed me and follow sounds opposite right?

Yes! But, this tool also has a feature to track down the list of the number of people who have requested to follow you. Do you know what this leads to? This leads to you being a part of the cool people on Twitter.

Unfollowedme is a web-based Twitter application and is available for free to use with the Twitter login option. Sign up for it with Twitter and you are there.


Crowdfire is an app-based Twitter analytics product, and I was one of the few first users of Crowdfire, but I stopped using it just for a reason that it unknowingly started spamming my followers’ inbox as it is automated to send auto direct messages.

And auto-tweets on the number of new followers and un-followers. The tool, when compared to the above web-based application, is nothing different except for being a better analytics tool. It provides all the features mentioned above and maybe you may like it because it is mobile.

I have listed the top two tools, which will help you find who has unfollowed you, but apart from this, there are plenty of other tools online. Welcome to the tweeting community and happy tweeting!!

Feel free to drop in your comments in case you would need more info, and we will address them.

How to use Snapchat effects?

Snapchat offers many effects which one can use to enhance the snaps. Let’s see how to do Snapchat effects.

In the firsts section, we will see how to get effects on Snapchat?

Section 1:

To apply face effects such as face swapping, animal faces, character transformations Snapchat makes use of lenses. Lenses are nothing but particular virtual effects that are used during the recording of the snap.

It is applied by the means of Face detection in real time that is one can watch his/her actions while the effects are being implemented simultaneously.

You may have to go through your device details as the lenses feature of Snapchat may not be available for old devices. For Android users, you must be equipped with Android 4.3 or higher to avail this feature of Snapchat.

Also, you must ensure that you are having the latest version of Snapchat on your device. Now, we will see how you can use the lenses feature. So, let’s get started:

Step #1: First of all, you will have to open the Snapchat application on your device.

Once you have opened the device, then you now need to navigate to the selfie mode.

Step #2: Now, position your device in such a manner that the whole of your face is visible on the device screen. This is important because Lenses makes use of the Face detection feature.

To choose the lenses, you will have to swipe left and right. Some of the very famous lenses are “Puking Rainbows”, “Zombie” and others. You can choose either one of these. However, you may see different lenses every day. It is because Snapchat jumbles the lenses in a day or so.

Step #4: Now, to apply the selected lens, you may need to follow the onscreen instructions. Like for instance, while using the “Puking Rainbow” effect, you are required to open your mouth wide so that the effect can take place.

Step #5: The moment you are ready then you can now start recording your snap. After recording the snap, you can send it to your recipients.

Section 2:

This section is concerned around “How to use Snapchat filter effects?

At the first step, you need to understand what a Snapchat filter does? Snapchat filters add effects to the snaps once they have been recorded or snapped. On a lighter note, they are very much similar to the garnishing done to the dishes once they are ready for being served.

To enable filters on your Snapchat, kindly follow the following route. Just tap the Ghost icon which is the official mascot of Snapchat. After this, you are required to tap the gear icon which resembles settings.

From the subsequent window, you now need to select “manage” and then toggle the filters switch on.

Now, once you are done with the prerequisites of adding a filter then let’s get started with the process:

Step #1: Simply record a snap or capture a picture.

Step #2: Now, in order to add a filter to your snap, all that you require doing is to swipe left and right for choosing different filters.

Here are some of the different filters which we got by swiping left and right.

Here is one another:

Kindly take note that, you won’t be able to add filters to your snaps if location services are not enabled on your devices.

To enable location services on Android device, you will have to open the Settings application and then navigate to the location and the turn on the location services which is positioned at the top of the window.

For iOS devices, you are required to launch the settings app and then navigate to the “Privacy” option and after that location services. Once you are at the location services menu, then you will have to toggle the location option to on mode.

This way, you can easily enable location services on your device.

Step #3: You can choose from a variety of filters, such as “Geo-Filter”, “Video-Only filter”, “Data Filter”, and “Color filter”. You can add more than one filters on your snaps. To be more exact with the data, you can add up to 3 filters on your pictures while up to 5 filters on videos.

Additionally, if you want to add text-based filters, then you can also do the same by just typing the text which you want to put on the video or picture. For this, you will have to tap on the photo or video. After this, you will have to type in the text which you want to display.

Once you have completed the text then now all that you require doing is to tap on “Done.” This will automatically add the text to the middle of your post.
