How to View Someone’s Private Instagram Photos & Messages?

Instagram is the next big thing in the social networking realm, after Facebook. It is a hugely popular networking site that enables its users to instantly share their photos and videos to its followers that include friends, family, and others.


There are two options for creating an Instagram account. One is a private account and the other is public. Anyone can view the contents of a public account. But if you toggle your Instagram profile setting to private, then all your images and video contents will be made private.

This means, only your friends on your Instagram list can view your images and videos and the other contents too.
