When You Search For Someone on Instagram, Will They Know?

Have you ever started searching for a user on Instagram and suddenly been struck with an underlying fear that they will be notified of your search?

If so, you’re not alone. Social anxiety means that many of us are plagued with worry that users can see exactly what we’re doing on social media – and it’s certainly not helped by the ads which follow us around the internet and appear to be listening to our devices at all times…

Nonetheless, in this article we’ve got good news – because the short and simple answer to this question is NO. Instagram users will not be informed or notified if you search for their profile.

Of course, that also means that you can’t tell who is searching for your profile in return, but maybe that’s a good thing! In a world of social media where so much of what we do is splashed online, it’s quite reassuring to know that not every search is made public!

(Just be sure to clear your Instagram search history before anyone else browses your phone, or any searches you’ve made on Instagram will be noted).
