How to See Hidden Photos on Instagram:

You can try the following methods below:

1. Following the Person’s Account

There are a few ways you can see the hidden photos of another Instagram user. If the user has a private account it means that his photos are only allowed to be viewed by his followers. Thus you need to first become his follower by following his account to see the hidden photos.

Once he approves your follow request you’ll be able to see all his posts and stories and they will no longer be hidden from you.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Open the Instagram application.

Step 2: Log in to your Instagram account.

Step 3: Then you’ll need to search for the user whose hidden photos you want to see.

2. From Mutual Friend’s Instagram Account

You can also check the hidden photos of a user from the profile of a mutual friend. If you don’t want to follow the private profile, then you’ll need to first go to the user’s profile and see if you’ve any mutual followers with the user or not. Most of the time, you will find a few or some mutual followers who follow the user on Instagram.

Mutual Friend's Instagram

As these mutual followers will be able to see the user’s posts, you can request one of the mutual followers to send you screenshots of the hidden photos from the user’s profile so that you can see them. You can also check them from the mutual follower’s Instagram account itself by taking over his device physically.

3. Find the Person’s Other Social Media

Another way to check the hidden photos of an Instagram user is by finding his other social media profiles and then stalking those profiles. Most users share the same kind of stuff on all of their social media profiles. Therefore, search for his profile on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, and then if you find his profiles, you’ll need to go through those profiles to check the posts that he has uploaded on those accounts.

Person's Other Social Media

There you’ll be able to see the hidden pictures too. However, if you find his other social media profiles are private too then you’ll need to use the method that’s mentioned below to see the hidden photos. 

4. Make a Fake Account & Follow Him

You can also create a fake Instagram account to see the hidden photos of an Instagram user. On your fake account, you need to use a fake username and a fake profile photo so that the user doesn’t know your real identity. Then use your fake account to first follow the private account of the user whose hidden photos you want to see.

Make a Fake Account

Wait for the user to accept your follow request. Once the user approves your follow request you’ll be able to become a follower of the user after which you’ll be able to see his hidden pictures from his Instagram account. This method will help you to check the hidden photos at the same time the user won’t be able to find out that you’ve checked it too since you’re using a fake account to follow him.
