Can You View Private Instagram Profiles Without An Account?

On Instagram, there’s a security hole that can be used to view the private publications on this social networking platform. All you need to do this is to know or at least have basic HTML programming language knowledge, that’s all. At first, go to a browser to collect the direct address of the image, photo, or video of the story or feed. To get the direct address of the photo or video, inspect the element by right-clicking on the mouse and then select Inspect or type CTRL+Shift+I on your keyboard. 


Previously, when the update was not in action yet, one could search for a profile in Google and enter into the account. Also, after entering that way, one could see at least a few posts, photos of the profile. And all of that without even seeing a notification or pop-up that forces you to log in with an account. From now on, with the update, to enjoy Instagram in full size and all of the content, the Instagrams algorithm will require log-in details from everyone that visits the site. Even if you try it with a strong VPN, Instagram will ask for the credentials to let you in. Because this update is now rolling worldwide. Trying from another country’s IP won’t help you bypass it. 

However, if you look around, you will understand it’s now normal as most of the other popular social media now use this way. Facebook does it for quite a long time. Actually, it is essential to increase the number of users in any social media or platform that has the user or account feature. Along with a strong profile and a big amount of users, it can bring a pretty big wave in the revenue section. As we know, the more users the more click on the ads.
