Have you ever wanted to view someone’s Instagram story without them knowing? There are a few ways to do this, but the best way is to load their specific stories beforehand. However, if you want to view the story without even loading up anything, there can be a problem. In this article, we will show you how to view someone’s Instagram story without them knowing using airplane mode.
The first thing you should do is at least view the first story or see if they’ve been loaded at all. Then, you want to go ahead and boot into airplane mode on your phone. Make sure everything is turned off, including Wi-Fi. Once you’re on Instagram, hop off and wait a second. Go back into Instagram, and sometimes you may get a little error that says no internet connection or whatever. That’s perfect. That’s exactly what you want to see.
Now, try viewing the person’s story. In some cases, you’re able to see it, and in some cases, you’re not. They are not notified right now that you viewed their story. Before you do anything else, hop out of Instagram completely. There can be some times where when you open up Instagram again, it will go ahead and kind of notify the person that notified but it will show the person that you saw their story.
What you can do, which is an extra step, is delete Instagram entirely while on airplane mode. Completely delete the application while you’re still on airplane mode and then reinstall it. There’s pretty much no way that Instagram can see that you’ve seen the story after you deleted the application as long as you’re still on airplane mode.
In conclusion, if you want to view someone’s Instagram story without them knowing, follow the above steps. It is an extra step to delete the Instagram application, but it’s pretty much the only way to do it. If you have any other questions or anything, let us know in the comment section below.
