By Pranab Sen

✎ Key Takes:

» You can view the Instagram highlights viewers for up to 48 hours, accessible directly from the story section.
» You can use this feature, as the list becomes unavailable after 48 hours, and information, including view counts, won’t be accessible from the archived story section.

How To See Who Viewed Your Instagram Highlights After 48 Hours:

There are two things, after 48 hours the person could not view your name on the list and if you view the highlights as anonymous the person would not be able to see your original name on the list.

1. Boosting Story Highlight

By boosting the Instagram story highlight, you can see the Analytics of views on that story. It will be there in your story as long as you set it.

Boosting Story Highlight

When you are going to boost up your Instagram highlight, you have to fill up the details of your ad settings, and when it is done you can, they will notify you. 

2. Taking Screenshots (Of Viewers)

If you want to recheck the viewer’s list of your Instagram highlights, then you have to take screenshots of it.

Open your Instagram highlight, and before the end of the 48 hours, take screenshots of the list, and you can see it as many times as you want further.

3. See Counts after 48 hours

The profile will be shown as a viewer in their viewer lists for only up to 48 hours. Earlier this was just like the Instagram stories that allowed you to see the viewers of your story for 24 hours only, but the updated version of Instagram has added a new feature to its highlights. The feature allows you to see who viewed your story highlights.

After 48 hours of the highlights or stories being posted, you can view the highlights section from their profile but you will no longer be shown as a viewer.

4. Use Business Account Insights

If you have a business Instagram account, you can use the Insights feature to see who viewed your story highlight. Go to your profile, click on the three horizontal lines in the upper right-hand corner, and click on Insights. From there, click on Content > Stories, and you can see the viewer count and the users who viewed your story highlights.

5. Check DM Requests

If someone has viewed your story highlights and wants to contact you, they may send you a DM request. Check your DM requests to see if anyone has messaged you after viewing your story highlight.

6. Look at Engagement Metrics

You can check the engagement metrics of your story highlight to see who viewed it. Engagement metrics include likes, comments, and shares. If someone has engaged with your story highlight, they likely viewed it.

7. Use Instagram Live

You can use Instagram Live to see who is currently watching your content. When you go live on Instagram, you can see who is viewing your live video. You can also save the live video as a highlight, and you will be able to see who viewed it.

8. Use Instagram Story Polls

You can use Instagram story polls to engage with your followers and see who viewed your story highlight. When you create a story poll, you can see who voted and who viewed your story.

Why Viewer Lists And View Counts Aren’t Available:

These are the below reasons for this:

1. It has been more than 48 hours

If your Instagram highlight views are not showing, it may have been more than 48 hours. Within 48 hours, you can see your Instagram highlight views, but after that, you will not be able to see them.

2. The person on the List blocked You

If the person you are looking for on the Viewers list has blocked you on Instagram, you can not find him on the list. When the person blocks you on Instagram, you will not be able to see his profile or content, and also, they can not see your Instagram content.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. If I watched the highlight, can they see that I viewed it?

Yes, if you watch the highlight of someone’s Instagram Story, they will be notified about it. But the person who posted the Instagram highlight has to see it within 48 hours, as an Instagram highlight lasts for a maximum of 48 hours; after that, neither you can see their Instagram highlight nor can they see who viewed it. 

2. Why can’t I see who viewed my story on Instagram?

If the Instagram app has any glitches like if the app is under maintenance or if you have network issues, you can’t see who viewed your Instagram story.
