Have you decided to take a break from social media by deleting your account but still want to view the occasional posts? Then you may have noticed a problem. Popular apps like Instagram, Facebook, and Reddit now prevent non-account holders from freely accessing content on their networks. Fortunately, there are some workarounds that can help you bypass the restriction. In this article, we show you how to view posts and more without registering.

View Instagram without logging in

While it used to be possible to view Instagram posts and profiles without an account, now things aren't that simple. You have limited access, even if your experience is quickly tainted by repeated requests to register with your username and password.

When you try to view an Instagram profile on a browser, desktop or mobile device, you will be able to view some posts, but if you scroll too much, you will be limited. This happens if you are using Firefox or Safari. In Chrome, you'll be prompted to sign in from the start without even a preview of the profile you're trying to view.

If you are trying to access a profile set to private, you are out of luck. Sure, there are services that claim they can unblock private profiles, but most of the time they are scams, so we don't encourage you to try.

Dumpor lets you see comments and likes as well. You can also click on the accounts that have commented on a post and see their profiles. Of course, you are not allowed to like or comment. This is a feature reserved for account holders only and you cannot do this anonymously.

How to view Twitter content without logging in

Twitter grants a more generous degree of access to those who don't have an account. On the desktop, you can view individual tweets and even read their comments by clicking on the post or hitting the "Show this thread" button.

On the other hand, if you click on the “Comments” icon, you will be asked to log in. Also, you won't be allowed to view media, likes, or see who liked a particular tweet if you don't log in. To view the comments on mobile, you will need to copy the tweet link and open it in another tab.

Note that to access Twitter content without an account, you will need to use a browser, on your PC or mobile phone. If you have the Twitter app on your phone, tapping a Twitter link will automatically open the app, asking you to sign in.

How to view Facebook posts anonymously without an account

Before proceeding, keep in mind that many Facebook profiles today are restricted and therefore only view limited content. You will not be able to view anything these people choose to share only with their friends on the network.

In the case of public profiles, however, it is possible to view their posts even without an account. Therefore, if a friend sends you a link to your favorite band's new single, which has been published on their official Facebook page, you will be able to access it and see the content they have shared. Plus, you can also browse their page and see what else they've posted.

This also applies to personal profiles. you can get limited access to them, meaning you can see their public posts and associated comments. However, you will not be allowed to view their stories, nor will you be able to like or comment on their posts.

You can view Facebook content without an account on your desktop or mobile device using a browser. On mobile devices, you will receive more intrusive requests to log in with your account that can severely hamper your experience, so we recommend using your computer instead.

How to search for someone on Facebook without an account

Without an account, you won't have access to Facebook Search, which allows you to search for people. The good news is that you can still find who you are looking for, but the results are a bit mixed. Especially if the person you need to find has a fairly common name.

The first method is to use Google and perform a search between these lines “name site:”. Once you hit enter, the search engine will list the profiles of people who have not limited the visibility of their profile. This is something anyone can do, so if you can't find the right person, it might be because they've given up on being visible to the general public.

Social search engines as well are an option, although they tend to produce mixed results. Additionally, most of them require payment to gain full access to the data they can generate.

How to view Reddit discussions and posts without an account

Reddit links are often displayed during searches, so being able to access threads and posts can prove to be very useful. On the desktop or mobile app, you won't even be bothered by annoying pop-ups asking you to log in.

What you can't do is follow threads, access a custom feed, comment or interact with other users. But if your goal is to simply read the content, you should be able to use Reddit on desktop or the Reddit mobile app.

In your mobile browser, the experience is a little annoying. You will be constantly asked if you want to view the content using the Reddit app. The good news is that the Reddit app allows you to view and browse content seamlessly. Get it on your phone.

On the other hand, if, for whatever reason, you don't want to download the app, you can use this trick to make browsing Reddit in your mobile browser bearable.
