When somebody blocks you on Instagram, it means they restrict access to their content. Well, in theory, it works like this. But in practice, there are several ways to steal a peek at what users who have blocked you post on Instagram.
These are three ways to do exactly that.
3 Ways to View Content of Blocked Instagram Account
Create a Fake Account
This is one of the most obvious ways to take a look at the content that’s hidden. If an Instagram user doesn’t accept your follow request for some reason, you can create a fake account and try your luck following them with this new page.
Make the account look legit: upload a profile picture, come up with a username, upload several posts or stories, and attract a few followers.
Note that you shouldn’t synchronise your account with your smartphone contacts and phone number; otherwise, you’ll reveal your true identity.
But this is a bit creepy, so let’s head over to the next one, the best way of all.
Install 4K Stogram
4K Stogram is exactly the tool that can help you with the task. Follow the simple steps below to download your friends’ private Instagram posts.
Download and launch 4K Stogram. It’s compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux computers.
Log in in-app to another Instagram account, not the one blocked by the user whose content you want to see.
Enter the username of an account that blocked you or whom you blocked.
All the results will be displayed on the dashboard of 4K Stogram: feed photos, stories, highlights, Reels (posted on the feed), profile pictures, and tagged posts. Thus, you’ll be able to see the content that is hidden from you on Instagram.
What's more, unlike the native Instagram functionality, 4K Stogram allows you to automatically save content of this account on your PC each time you log in. It means that you don't have to follow this user on Instagram, using your fake account or search for them on Insta anytime you want to check what they've posted — their content will be on 4K Stogram automatically without them knowing. This function can be turned off, though.
To view where the content is stored on your PC or Mac, hover the mouse over any photo or video and press the three dots at the upper right, then choose the Show in Finder option.
Find Other Social Media Accounts of This User
Many users make their Instagram accounts private forgetting about other channels and copy their Insta posts (at least some of them) to Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, etc. If you want to find out what the user posts on Instagram, you might as well find their profiles on other social media pages by googling them or searching for the username on the platforms.
