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.
