How To Follow Someone On Instagram Without Them Knowing?

Concerned about your privacy?

If you are planning to stalk someone on Instagram, then you should hide your identity.

There are two ways you can do this.

You can either use a dummy account.

Or you can use Instagram++

Method 1 : Dummy Account

This method is easy but not very effective.

A dummy account with a fake name will hide your identity.

If the account is private, approval is still needed.

An obvious dummy account will not be accepted for approval.

When making a dummy account, we recommend making it look real and authentic.

A “real and authentic” looking dummy account will help you get follower approval.

How To Make A Dummy Account?

This method is simple.

  1. You just need to create a new Instagram account.
  2. Log out of your original account and then sign up with your new dummy account.
  3. Find someone on Instagram and follow them.

To remain anonymous, make sure to use a fake name.

If you view their stories or like their posts, they will know.

Do not use your real name on the dummy account.

Make sure that the dummy account is not linked with your original account.

Method 2 : Instagram++

This app will allow you to view someone’s private account.

You can look at posts and stories and they will not know anything.

How To Install Instagram++?

  1. Open your Chrome Browser. (This app is not available on the App store or Play store)
  2. Find Instagram++ on com and download it.
  3. Install the app
