The common question almost every Instagrammer has is “Who stalks my profile?”.
Well, it is obvious for people to wonder who visits and checks their Instagram profiles. So, is there a way to see who viewed your profile?
Let’s find it out!
Can You See Who Viewed Your Profile On Instagram?
Unfortunately, Instagram does not offer you a direct option to find out precisely who viewed your profile.
However, you can use the Instagram insights feature to see information about the number of people who visited your profile or saw your posts on their feed. The feature also lets you see detailed information about the performance of your specific posts, stories, videos, and reels on Instagram.
But, do you know that TikTok has recently introduced a feature that allows you to see your profile viewers. Here’s how to turn on profile views on TikTok.
How to Turn On Profile Views On Instagram
This doesn’t show you who viewed your profile but gives information about the followers and performance of your Instagram account.
It is important to note that you can only use the Instagram insights on the Instagram mobile app at the present moment. You also need to have a business or creator account to use the insights feature.
If you don’t have a business account, you can turn your account into one.
Switch to a Business Account
Step 1: Launch Instagram and head into your profile section by tapping your profile picture.
Step 2: Tap the Hamburger menu in the top-right of the screen.

Step 4: Tap Account, then select Switch to Professional Account at the bottom.
Step 5: Tap Continue, then choose a category for your business and tap Done.
Step 6: Tap Business, then tap Next.
Step 7: Enter your contact details and tap Next. You can also tap Don’t use my contact info to skip this step if you do not want to enter your contact details.
Step 8: Tap the cross mark in the top-right of the interface to go back to your profile.
You have successfully turned your Instagram account into a business account. You can now use the Insights feature to view your account analytics.
