  • Why do You see So Many Fake Private Instagram Profile Viewer Software & Tool? 

private instagram viewerThe answer is quite straightforward, they getting money when you download their software or install it.

As I searched for the tool or software which would help in viewing Instagram Private Profile, I found quite a few sites.

These sites which are easy to use become more complicated as and when you get eager to know about a private user. I will guide you through the steps I had to follow when I had to view a private profile picture.

  • First, I had to Google and only to see that there are such tools available to view private profile possible or not? Guess what! Some sites offered me to view the private profiles.
  • I entered the website and was quite impressed with the way the site was built. I entered the username/URL of the person who has a private profile.
  • Next step is they ask me to verify whether I am a human or not.
  • Some sites ask to complete survey whereas some ask you to download apps to view a private profile.

So did it help me? NO.

They did not. But these sites seemed to be exciting and at the same time encourage visitors to join in their websites and download some useless and paid apps.

As and when you enter the username of a private profile, it asks you to complete the survey for some advertisements listed on their website which will help you in viewing the private profile.

Clicking on an advertisement would help the site generate revenue, this is how they earn and make money by fooling people and grab attention with their headline.

Some sites ask you to provide your username and password to generate their Instagram Private Profile. This will somehow lead to hacking as the details you provide are stored in their database, and this will be used to increase their own or someone else’s followers.

As you complete it, they get money from you because you just completed advertisement surveys for them.

Do not get sad as there are other ways to view a private profile ( No Hacking, No Tool) You can get so many snapchat tricks which are pretty true and genuine.

Here is a small trick that might come in handy to you.

Create a Fake ID 

Well, this is against the ethics and manners with regards to the use of a social account. But if you are that desperate into knowing someone’s personal life then here you go, take care in creating the fake ID.

  • The first step is to create a fake profile with the help of fake username probably try using a girl’s username( Chances are not only you can view your crush’s profile but also gain a high number of followers)
  • If you want the fake account to be of a Boy, then the chances are that you might not be accepted.
  • Keep it real, try not uploading an image which is straight downloaded from the internet and make the bio look real by not over exaggerating with the girl’s interests.  
  • As you are creating a fake ID with a girl’s username, try to keep the privacy ON as it might make the other person curious.
  • After creating the profile, now is the time you send a request to the person for who you have created the fake account.
  • But before sending a request to try to make some mutual connections like a friend of her, this will help her in accepting your request.

This trick is just for the desperate people out there but honestly; I would not recommend you to take this way.

Directly ask the Person

The easiest of ways and hassle free ways to get to view a private profile is to ask the person directly. Here are a few steps that you need to follow:

  • If you have the desire to view a private profile, the easiest way is to send them a follow request. If the person you just send a request has a private account, he/she might get notified about the follower who wants to send a message or wants to talk.
  • In few cases, personal interactions might as well work in your favor. Be as real as possible for the person to feel right about you. The chances of that person accepting your request will increase and you might get to view their pictures.

Keep it simple and wait for the reply of the messages you sent. Try and express your desire by contacting them directly. This is the simple and most accessible of methods to get things done.

  • Is Instagram secure?

Come on! Although it is 2018, still there isn’t any tool that can work to get an Instagram Private Profile Viewer, no tool, no software and no hack( unless and until they are close to you and agree to share their passwords.)

Instagram is although owned by Facebook who itself is witnessing a case of data theft probe.

But we are speaking about Instagram, if there is someone who is good at the process of getting into some user’s account then might be the person is already hired by Instagram and is all set for a massive deal with Instagram.

Instagram is a billion dollar company, and a security breach means a lot to them, so they have already hired someone who gets the work done with a hefty million dollar deal between them.

After Facebook and Twitter, Instagram is the most used social application all around the world. It does take the database seriously and would not want to see the company falling in numbers both regarding users and shares.

Although we might agree that hacking takes place but the hackers aim for the bank details where they can destroy economy but not everyone is Elliot Alderson( A programmer in the show called Mr.Robot) who steals the details and disrupts the financial condition of people in business in The United States.

But what would one get in stealing the passwords of your Instagram Account? Nothing but post some random stuff. But the first thing is hacking will not take place at all.

If there is any software to view private profiles of Instagrammers then why a company like Instagram is not taking action to get rid of this? Have you ever thought about this?

There are no shortcuts to anything be it in case of earning money or viewing a private profile. You have to take specific measures to keep it legal.

The page that says that offer you in viewing the private pictures read terribly, and the grammar used in those pages are way worse … So how could one fall for this? How do you expect someone to crack the code of a private profile and make it visible for viewing? Of course – we know that not all hackers are foreigners, but as you visit their “contact us” page, you will notice that their given address is USA.

So here we have someone promising you an effectively illegal product, potentially lying about where they are from and who doesn’t have a firm grasp of the language.

By now it is clearly understood that no such software or tool can help you view a profile picture. Hence I recommend you to approach them in person and ask for them to follow. Also if you find any such tool in future or have questions with regards to this article, mention them in the comments section below.
