Instagram is one of the most popular social media applications, used by millions of users globally. The photo-sharing app gained wide popularity in India soon after the ban on TikTok, in the year 2022.
The Meta-owned photo-sharing app offers a wide range of features and one of them is the Instagram story. Users can upload photos or videos on their stories and also know who viewed them. Contacts/followers can also react to stories.
The story usually shows the list of people who viewed it. But, if you want to check someone’s Instagram Story without them knowing, there are two ways to do that as well. Let’s take a look at the three ways that will allow you to view someone’s story on Instagram without them knowing that you have done that.
