How to see someone’s story anonymously?

How to view Instagram stories anonymously

  • First, you want to make sure the username is as disconnected from you or your main account’s username as possible.
  • Do not use a photo of yourself as a profile pic. Perhaps it is best to add a realistic name and bio as well.
  • Make the account private.
  • Most importantly, because you want this account to be unknown, do not add your phone number; that way, your contacts will not be able to find you. Do not use the same email address as your main account. Use a fake email instead.
  • Lastly, make sure none of your accounts on other social platforms like Twitter or Facebook are linked to your Finsta.
