If you've got a public Instagram account, blocking somebody means they can't see your account while logged into the app. And vice versa, if someone blocked you, you can’t see their photos, videos and stories. Theoretically.
We might have ended the article here, but practically, there are ways to see what a user who blocked you or who is blocked by you is posting on Instagram.
These ways are the subject of this article.
Ways to View a Blocked Instagram Account Media
Create Fake Account
If know that the user rejects your follow request for a reason, you can create a fake account and try your luck following them with it.
Upload a profile picture, create a username, and in order not to look like a bot, upload several posts or stories and earn a few followers though this is optional.
Note that you shouldn’t synchronise your account and smartphone contacts and your phone number; otherwise, you’ll reveal yourself, and other users will find out who you are.
Use Other Social Media Accounts of This User
Many users make their Instagram accounts private forgetting about other social media and copy their Insta posts (at least some of them) to Twitter, Facebook, TikTok or any other social pages. If you want to find out what the user posts on Instagram, you might as well want to find their profiles on other social media pages by googling them or searching for the username within the social media sites.
Use Your Mutual Friend’s Account
If you and the user whose account you want to view have mutual friends, ask your friend to send you screenshots of the account.
But this is a bit creepy, so let’s head over to the next, the best way of all.
Install Qoob Stories
