You can either have a private Instagram or a public profile, Instagram provides its users private type account in case you want to lock up all posts from unknown folks.
If you are on Instagram and trying to completely lock your profile so that others cannot see your unloaded stuff then making the account private helps a lot. In that case, only your followers will be able able to see. Not only that but also the new followers will be on hold until you approve them.
That means if you have a private Instagram account people would not be able to see your stuff even they trick by tapping onto the ‘Follow’ button.
Another interesting fact I would like to enlist there is, even if you follow the person and your profile is private, people in your ‘Following‘ list would not be able to see your posts unless they are on your ‘Followers‘ list.
To see someone’s Instagram profile, just get the link of the profile and then you can open it directly without logging in. If the account is private you have to log in and follow the person or in case the profile is public you can look at all the stuff even without an account.
But, what would you do if the person does not allow you in his followers-list? Well, in some instances, you can also view those private profile stuff even if you don’t have an Instagram account. In this article, I will be sharing the guide by which you will be able to see the Instagram posts including photos or videos of a private profile without having an account.
Stalking Instagram without an Account
If you want to view Instagram photos or videos of someone else who made his profile either public or private you can see the stuff through some methods. These are the feature that Instagram & its parent company Facebook has and still working.
On Instagram, you can find any profile & their stuff if you’re in his ‘Followers’ list. Now, in case you don’t have an account on Instagram still, you will be able to see all details of that profile like followers and following count, posts count, intro, etc.
The best part is you can see these things even the profile is private. But, only the count you will see, viewing the photos or videos if the profile is private is far away to go.
Yes, if the profile is public, Instagram will let you see all the stuff uploaded on that profile. However, if you are a follower of that person then just by signing in onto Instagram you can view the private photos as well.

Now, in case, the profile is private then to view the photos you can’t unless you are a follower of that person and to become a follower of the person just by pressing the follow button will not enable you to see all the stuff until the person approves you on his list.
So, in this critical situation, you can take the help of Facebook or Twitter account of the person and if the person shared his stuff like photos and other posts on Twitter or Facebook then you can easily view the photos by clicking on the links.

➋ Look at the post the person shared on Twitter or Facebook and find out those Instagram posts from there.
➌ Now once you click on the link you will be directed to Instagram to view the photos of the person who has a private Instagram profile.
Finding their Twitter or Facebook (Quick Guide)
I am adding an additional guide to this on how you can find the Twitter or Facebook account of the person more easily.
