• Hey Lisa,

    Your post about how to follow private Instagram accounts was really insightful and helpful. I’m not very active on Instagram lately, but when I do follow someone, I definitely want to know more about them before hitting the “follow” button. Privacy is important, but transparency is equally important for building trust and a genuine connection.

    Your tips and tricks for bypassing the privacy barriers of private accounts were really clever and I’m definitely going to keep them in mind next time I come across a private account I want to follow. I appreciate the time and effort you put into researching and sharing these solutions with us.

    Overall, great work and keep the helpful content coming!

      Hi Matthew, thank you and welcome to Inspire To Thrive. I hope these tips help you to realize what others can see on your profile if you ever decide you need a private one too. It works both ways 🙂 I recently learned the (new 5) bio links now on Instagram show to all users whether private or not. Have a great day!

  • Good to know Lisa. I’ve been inactive on Instagram for a bit but if I follow anyone I need to know more about them. Privates never got a follow because I need transparency. You listed a few clever ways to get around this problem. Excellent post guys.

      Thanks, Ryan, I rarely follow private accounts myself. It seems a little ironic to me to be on social media and want to be private at the same time. Thanks for coming by on this one Ryan – have a great rest of your weekend!

  • Hi Lisa,
    Great tips for someone who want to “spy” on private IG accounts 🙂 I am not much of a stalker, so I think I will stay away.

    @Lisa – Loving the new look of your website!!

      Thank you, Praveen for the comment on the website redesign. I’m excited about it, my techie Mayura did a fabulous job with it. It took some time but the traffic has started coming right back up. I always forget what a big project a redesign can be. Have a great day!

    Hi Lisa,

    Your guide is valuable and timely for users who may want to follow someone but hit a dead end. For instance, before I follow other Instagram users, I visit their profiles to ensure what they’re doing is relevant. But sometimes, I get a “this profile is private” notification and quickly hit the back button without considering how to view those profiles. So, your tutorial is a helpful resource since it makes it easier to view private accounts on the site.
    Thanks for sharing!😊

      Thank you Moss, I’m glad you found it valuable. That notification can stop you for a while. But now you know how you can still move along to find them. Thanks for coming by and have a great day.
