How To Watch Instagram Stories Anonymously

Instagram stories are an excellent way to keep tabs on what your friends, family, and favorite celebrities are up to. But, sometimes, you may want to view these stories without leaving a trace. In this post, we will guide you through the steps on how to watch Instagram stories anonymously.

What Does Watching Instagram Stories Anonymously Mean?

When you’re browsing through Instagram and watching stories, the person who posted the story can see who viewed it. Watching a story anonymously means you can watch the story without the owner knowing you’ve seen it. But how can you do this?

Method 1: Using Instagram Story Viewer Tools

There are several online tools that allow you to view Instagram stories anonymously. One such tool is InstaStories. It allows you to watch stories of any public Instagram account anonymously. Keep in mind, this does not work for private profiles.

Here is how to use it:

  1. Go to the InstaStories website.
  2. Type the Instagram username of the account whose story you want to view in the search box.
  3. Click on the account from the dropdown menu to view their stories.

Method 2: Manual Method

For those who are cautious about using third-party tools, there is a manual method for watching Instagram stories anonymously. However, this method only works on the Instagram web platform and not on the app.

Follow these steps:

  1. Open Instagram on your web browser and log in to your account.
  2. Find the account whose story you want to view and go to their profile.
  3. Without clicking the profile picture (which would normally play the story), right-click on the profile picture and click ‘Inspect’ or ‘Inspect Element’.
  4. A panel will open containing the website’s HTML code. Look for a link that ends with ‘.jpg’ or ‘.png’.
  5. Open this link in a new tab. The image you see is their current Instagram story. As you’re viewing it in a separate tab and not through the Instagram interface, the user won’t be able to see that you’ve viewed their story.

Please remember, these techniques should be used responsibly. It’s always good to respect each other’s privacy and use these methods for ethical purposes only.

Now that you know how to watch Instagram stories anonymously, you can go ahead and catch up on all the stories you’ve missed without worrying about anybody knowing!
