To view Instagram Stories anonymously, there are some apps that allow you not to be discovered. These apps work with posts from open (public) profiles and also with closed accounts followed by the user.
Haanga has gathered the best programs for Android and iPhone to spy on posts while remaining anonymous. We also took the opportunity to list Chrome extensions and sites that offer the same service, but without having to download anything. Check out!
Apps to view Instagram Stories anonymously
1. story saver
Story Saver allows you to anonymously view Stories from open and closed profiles, as long as you follow it. In addition to zooming in on images and videos, the user can also download, share and repost content.
The application has other features, such as the possibility to see the profile picture in full screen and check the statistics of all users. Among the data is the average number of likes and comments per feed post.
There’s also the updated list of the 200 biggest profiles on the net for inspiration, caption and hashtag tips, sources to copy and paste and much more. Ideal not only for looking through stories without being discovered but also for standing out on Instagram.

One of the most popular apps for viewing stories without being discovered, NoSeen lets you view posts in full screen, share with a tap or download to your phone. Just log into your Instagram account to see what profiles you follow have posted in the last 24 hours.
The visualization dynamics is quite similar to that offered by the social network. By tapping on the right or left side of the image, you can go to the next or previous story. In addition to the profiles you follow, you can also search to see the posts made by other users with public accounts.

With BlindStory, the user can view stories anonymously by tapping on a profile or following all the posts in sequence, as they do on Instagram. You can also search for people you don’t follow, but have a public account on the social network.
When you access someone’s page, you can bookmark them and check out their featured stories. The app also offers the option to manually download publications or automatically download all posts made.
The only problem is that in the free version there is a limit of views per day. To have unlimited access, you must subscribe to a paid plan.

Although the main function of Story Saver is to save Stories published by others on your mobile phone, it also allows you to view these posts without being discovered. When opening the app, users who posted stories in the last 24 hours are listed. When you tap on one of them, you will see, in thumbnail, the photos and videos that are live.
To avoid being seen by those who posted, just tap on one of these thumbnails and hold for a few seconds. The post will be selected and will display a blue check icon. So go to the button downloadin the lower right corner of the screen.
The image or video will be available in the Gallery, in a folder within the application itself.
