Have you also been in a position where you wanted to view someone’s Instagram story but also did not want them to know? Well, you’re not the only one! In today’s age, with Instagram having become a social hub, each person is trying to catch up with the social buzz around the platform and at times it can get difficult.
For whatever reason, you wish to watch a person’s Instagram story secretly, we’re not gonna judge you. There are so many reasons why you may want to watch someone’s story, but not have your face pop up in their seen list. We’re here to let you know that you can now do exactly that in three simple ways. You may choose whichever method suits you the best from among the three and fulfill your purpose.
So, for the first trick, let’s say that we want to view One Plus’s Instagram story, and NOT be seen.
Step 1 : Press the story previous to the story that you secretly wish to view, and skip to their last story (if there are more than one)
In this case, we’ll click on realmeindia’s story and tap until we reach their last story
Step 2: On reaching the last story, press and hold the story, and then gently tip across so that you can view the next story
You can tilt it almost all the way, but be careful, or you may end up opening that story!
For safety precautions, you may just tilt up to 50 percent of the story you wish to secretly view, or you may somehow end up on their seen list.
Step 3: After you’re done watching the story, gently tip back o the previous story
After coming back to the home page, you’ll still be able to see a ring around the original story, which in our case is One Plus.

Now, let’s say that the story you wish to view has more than a single image, be it a series of images or a series of videos, then you can use this trick.
Through this trick, you’ll be able to view their story fully without them knowing, but you need to be quick.
Let’s again assume that we wish to view One Plus’s story secretly.
Step 1: Go into the story that you wish to view and quickly view them all.
Step 2: Close the story and go into the profile whose story you viewed.
Step 3: Block the profile for 24 hours.
Hence, after you block them, they won’t be able to see your profile in their seen list, as your account won’t exist for them. You can unblock them after their story has disappeared.
This is the most extreme measure and kind of a weird tip but if you need to take this step then go right ahead!
Now, the third tip that we’re going to show you involves the use of a third-party website. So, take this step only if you trust them. Also, this trick only works for a public account.
Step 1: Go to https://www.storysaver.net/
Step 2: Enter the username of the account whose story you wish to view secretly
Step 3: Press the Download button
Now you’ll see all the stories the account has posted
Step 4: Click on the story that you wish to view
You can also Download the story by clicking on ‘Save As Photo’
This works for videos as well!
