Having an Instagram account is the best way to freely navigate the social network and have unrestricted access to all its features. But don't worry: you can view an Instagram profile without an account. However, this is only possible if you have the exact username and the profile is set to public.
1) Use the Instagram URL
For example, you can type “www.instagram.com/username” to view the feed of that profile.
2) Enter the Username Directly
You can also simply enter the username of the account or profile you want to view. The account whose feed you are viewing will not be able to tell who has seen its posts uploaded to Instagram, as it can only know who has viewed its Stories.
What Can't You Do Without an Instagram Account?
Apart from the fact that you will only be able to generally view the main feed, there are other things that the platform will not allow you to do unless you register. These things include:
- You won't be able to view and post comments.
- You also won't be able to like photos and posts.
- You can't view Stories or highlighted moments.
- You won't be allowed to follow any accounts.
Therefore, if you try to perform any of these actions, you will see a message asking you to log in to the platform.
