This is the simplest hack you can use to view someone’s Instagram Story without them knowing. All you have to do is, tap on the Story next-in-line instead of the one you want to watch secretly. Also Read - Instagram allows you to add captions to Stories automatically: Know what it is

Now, tap on the story you are on to pause. Once, this has happened, you have to swipe left to reach the story you wanted to view. This needs to done slowly. Following this, you will reach the middle point of both the Instagram Stories from where you can get a glance at the story you intended to watch without registering your name in the viewers’ list.

Just make sure you don’t swipe hastily for it will tell them that you have viewed their story. Another thing to keep in mind is that this hack only gives you a peek at the story.

Method 2

Another simple method to view people’s Insta Stories without letting them know is by taking the help of the Airplane mode. All you have to do is, open the Instagram app on your Android or iOS phone. Wait a few seconds for the Stories to load.

Once this happens, switch on the Airplane mode. Now, head back to the app and open the Instagram Stories you need to watch. This way, the person, whose story you watched, won’t know that you saw it.

Method 3

You can also anonymously view people’s Instagram Stories via the web. For this, you just need to install the ‘Chrome IG Story‘ Chrome Extension and start viewing the stories without leaving behind a view.

Just download the extension, open Instagram’s web version, and log in with your credentials. Once this is done, you can start viewing people’s Instagram Stories without them knowing.
