How To Know If Someone Is Spying On Your Instagram:

You can try the following methods below to know if someone is spying on your Instagram account:

1. Checking The DM

If you want to find out whether someone is spying on your Instagram, you need to check the DM section of your Instagram account.

There is a good chance that the spy might send you a DM to contact you to get to talk to you. You also need to check the message request section and see if you have any message requests or not.

Check DM

If you have many pending message requests you need to go through them. After checking the DM request, you’ll be able to find out if the spy has sent any message or not. If you have not got any message, then it might be because he or she wants to keep an eye on you but not contact you directly.

2. Comment & Reactions to Instagram Posts

When someone is spying on your Instagram account, there is a good chance that the user is not only reading the messages or checking the activities but using your account too. Therefore, you’ll be able to notice the changes that the user makes to your account.

Comment & Reactions

You’ll need to check the comments and reaction section of your Instagram posts to see if you can find any changes. You can also check the block list to know whether the spy has blocked anyone behind your back or not.

If you find any comments or blocked users that have not been done by you, it means that your account is not only spied on but the hacker is using it too.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can you tell if someone logs into your Instagram?

Instagram keeps a record of the device which your account is logged into. If you want to know on which your account is logged in, you need to check the login session list to see the names of all the devices on which you’ve logged in to your account.

On the list, if you find any unknown device, it means that your account has been hacked or logged in by someone else.

2. If I log into Instagram on another device will it notify me?

When you log in to Instagram from another device, you get a login notification about it. The name of the device is shown in the Login Activity section of your Instagram account which you can check from the web Instagram.

You can log out of the device if you don’t recognize any device in the Login Activity list. 

3. Why is my Instagram login activity showing different cities?

If your cities are showing different login activities, it might be because you are using a VPN to log into Instagram. Even if you’ve logged in from a different city in which you’re currently, it may show you the name of the city from which you’ve logged in primarily.

It also depends on the IP address. However, if you see a location that’s far beyond your activity it might be because it’s logged in by someone else.
