Well, if you are a social media freak and have a public profile on Instagram, most of the time, we have a keen desire to know who viewed our profile bio. Today when many users are still following the ‘Like & Follow’ method, it is not necessary for all to do the same. There is a majority of users who like to check out your profile without following the account.

How To Know Who Views My Instagram Page or Profile?
Well, if you are looking forward to finding out away, you must be curious enough. So, before we move on, you must know that Instagram doesn’t provide an in-app functionality to track down your profile visitors.
If you are using a business account, you will be allowed to see the number of people who checked your profile in the last 7 days. But again, Instagram won’t reveal their names, not even to you. Therefore, let’s check out some of the alternate apps to do so.
Since Instagram doesn’t provide the in-app functionality, let us search for some third-party applications built for the same purpose. During our search, we found tons of similar applications that claim to have this functionality. These apps are available both for Android and iOS.
Now the important question is, do these apps really work? Well, the answer is again a big NO.
Most of these apps are fake. They randomly pick up some Instagram names and show them to fool you. Also, some of the apps ask for small payments to show your profile visitors. Moreover, new ads will pop-up every other minute, which is a good way to earn revenue. The reason why these apps don’t work properly is that Instagram API doesn’t share any such information with the third-party applications. So in case you have installed one such application, you should delete them as they are FAKE!
