Ways to Tell if Someone Follows You On Instagram

As we mentioned, Instagram won’t send any notification if someone ever unfollows you. So, if you want to know whether someone follows you or not, you will have to search for it manually.

  • The easiest way to find someone who follows you on Instagram is to search for the profile. Make sure that you are not following them. Once you’re on their profile page, you have to look for the Follow Back option. The option is only visible if someone follows you and you aren’t.

  • If that’s the case, then you can do the other thing. Tap on the Following Count option next to the Followers. It will show you the complete list of profiles that the users follow.
