How do I see photos in a locked Instagram account?

Every time I answer a question like this about private Instagram accounts and how to view their content, I am amazed by these questions.

How could a company with a multi-million dollar budget fall into loopholes like this?


To be honest with you, sometimes some glitches do occur, but they are addressed in a short period.

Now let’s talk frankly…

Can I see photos on a locked Instagram account?

There is no way to see photos in a locked Instagram account except by following the account. Any article or method that talks about the possibility of this is just a way to deceive and exploit you, and you should stay away from it.

Some articles talk about the possibility of seeing the profile picture of a locked Instagram account easily by:

  • Copy the account link.
  • Search for it in Google search engine.
  • Click on the account picture and then upload it in a new window.
  • Thus, you will be able to see a picture of the closed private account.


Since Instagram has already introduced such a feature, you can now see the account photo from within the Instagram application itself.

All you have to do is click on the account picture and you will be able to see the account picture.

Now let’s talk about some important ways…

How do I see photos in a locked Instagram account?

As I told you above, the only way that can answer the question about “How do I see photos in a locked Instagram account” is to follow the account.

But many times you don’t want the person to know that you are following them, or just to maintain your privacy or be shy you don’t want to follow the account yourself.


All you have to do is rely on one of the following methods: 

  • Create a fake Instagram account (preferably a girl and follow the closed account).
  • You can ask a friend of yours to take a screenshot of the account photos and send them to you (if you already have a friend with this person).
  • You can ask your friend to send a request to follow the person from his account.
  • Finally, you can create an account for a business or hobby and follow the person.

Thus, you have maintained your privacy and been able to view photos from a locked Instagram account.

Now to put an end to doubt…

Is there a program or website that enables me to see photos of a locked Instagram account?

Many articles and videos talk about the existence of many programs such as Instagram++ or sites such as Instagram Profile Viewer through which you can see private account photos.

But is this true?


There is no website or program through which you can view photos in a locked private account.

The ultimate goal of such programs is to exploit you and scam you, in many cases.

As for using programs specifically that ask you to link your account, this may often cause your account to be blocked by the Instagram platform.


Brotherly advice at the end of this article: Do not fall for this false information and experiment because in the end you may lose a lot.

All you have to do is follow logic, be a little bold, follow the person, and start getting to know him.

And do not forget that there is no way for you to see the posts of a private Instagram account

You certainly cannot skip the huge security measures that cost a company like Instagram millions and watch a private Insta account.
