You can view Instagram profiles without an account. Here's how, in addition to the limits you will have to face.

If you've never jumped on the Instagram bandwagon but want to view someone's account, you can still check it out without having a profile yourself.

Features are extremely limited without a real account, but you can still view someone's profile and get an overview of the posts if you know the right methods.


Here's how to browse Instagram without having an account.


How to view Instagram without an account

Going to Instagram.com and trying to browse the platform without signing up for an account will get you nowhere. All you will see is a login screen waiting for you to log in or register.

Those who know Instagram and how it works know that a profile is the only way to access all the features of the platform.

Without registering for a profile and providing login information, you cannot use Instagram as a real user. It doesn't matter if you are using a smartphone or Chrome.

But there are ways around this login screen by visiting profiles directly and using third-party Instagram viewers.

How to view an Instagram profile without an account

The good news is that you can still find a specific Instagram profile as long as you have the exact username and the profile is set to public.

All you need to do when looking for an Instagram profile without an account is type the URL of the Instagram website into your browser followed by the username of the account .

For example, you can type “www.instagram.com / [username]” and see the account's photo feed. We tested it with ”www.instagram.com/beyonce“, but it works with any public profile.



The account you are trying to view will not be able to see who has viewed their Instagram posts. They can only see who has viewed their stories.

How to view an Instagram profile without an account using Instagram viewers

You can also view Instagram profiles without an account using Instagram viewing sites. These are third-party tools that allow you to browse Instagram profiles.

There are several types of Instagram viewers that you can choose from. Some popular ones include ImgInn, Inflact, Dumpor, Anon IG Viewer e GreatFon.

ImgInn

For this demonstration we will use ImgInn: it is totally free and allows you to browse Instagram without an account. You can also download photos, videos and stories.

Here's how to view Instagram without an account using ImgInn:

  • Go to on your smartphone or PC.
  • Enter the person's name or @username in the search bar, then click the search icon.
  • Click on the particular profile you want to view.

You can also read post comments with this tool. You don't need to register to use ImgInn to view Instagram without an account.

However, beware of Instagram viewers who ask for your personal information before allowing you to use their services.

What can you do without an Instagram account

Although you can view Instagram without an account, there really isn't much else you can do aside from:

  • View publicly available profiles.
  • By clicking on the bio links.
  • Viewing totals for posts, followers and followers.
  • View and download photos, videos and stories.
  • Viewing comments on posts.
  • View related accounts.

What you can't do without an Instagram account

Instagram doesn't want anyone to use its platform without having a profile, so your features will be extremely limited.



Just because you've been able to see a profile page and post summary without an account doesn't mean you'll be able to do much more.

Without actually registering an account and logging in, viewing a profile and minimized photo feed is really the only thing you can do.

Here are some of the benefits you're missing out on by not creating a profile:

  • Networking with other IG users.
  • Posting of comments.
  • I like photos and videos.
  • Zoom in on the photos.
  • Follow an Instagram account.
  • Camera effects and stickers.
  • Publish your content.

Whenever you try to do any of the above, a message will appear asking you to log in to use the platform.


You have learned to view Instagram without an account. This way you can browse Instagram without logging in or having an account, but you won't be able to interact or view posts like a normal user.
