Everyone has long been used to social networks and the fact that they collect data about their users. Instagram is no exception in this regard and stores data such as view history, likes, subscriptions, and many other actions, and since Instagram is currently one of the most popular social networks – the user should know how to view the collected data and delete it if necessary.

How to view and clear the Instagram search history?

Instagram, like all social networks, automatically stores all search results. To make sure of this, it is enough to enter the search menu (by pressing the magnifying glass icon) and tap on the text input field. A little below (under the search field) you will see some recent results (those that have been accessed by the search). To see all saved results, click on “See all” in the upper right corner.

To clear your Instagram search result history, click “Clear All” (also in the upper right corner).

How to view and clear the likes history in Instagram (Android)?

In addition to browsing results, Instagram also keeps a history of your favorite photos or videos, which means you can view your favorite content again. To view your favorite posts you should:

Step 1: Go to Instagram settings by following the first step from the previous paragraph of this article.

Step 2: In the app settings, click on “Posts you’ve liked

Posts you've liked in Instagram

You’ll see a list of all your favorite posts in front of you. Unfortunately, the official Instagram app doesn’t support deleting all your favorite posts at once. That’s why you have to delete the favorited posts one by one.

To do this, open the desired post and click on the heart icon (it should turn gray).

After that, it will disappear from the list of your favorites.

How to view and clear the likes history in Instagram (iOS)?

How to see who liked a post on Instagram?

If you were wondering who liked a particular post in Instagram – you can easily do so. Just find the photo or video you’re interested in and click “Likes

Who likes the post in Instagram

You will see a list of all Instagram users who have “liked” this post.

How to know which posts were liked by other person?

Once upon a time, Instagram allowed you to find out what posts the other person liked. All you had to do was touch the heart icon in the mobile app, and the “What’s New?” section would open up, showing you all the content that your friends had liked.

But, unfortunately, Instagram management removed this function, and today you can’t see what your friends liked with the help of regular features.

However, you can use a special service called Snoopreport. To find out what your friends, girlfriend, or child has been liking you should:

Step 1: Go to the service website, and sign up (It won’t take more than two minutes).

Sign up in the Snoopreport

Step 2: You will see your dashboard Here you can manage the accounts you are interested in. To add an new account – click on the plus icon as shown in the screenshot (If you want to add more than one account to track, click the two plus icons.).

Adding account to the Snoopreport

Step 3: In the window that opens, enter the desired login and select the required user from the list.

Important: The service works with public accounts only.

Adding account to the Snoopreport

At this point, you need to buy a time package for monitoring. Do this.

The purchased amount of time is divided between accounts. For example, you can buy four weeks of monitoring and either use them for one account, or divide them into two weeks for two accounts, or one week for four accounts, etc.

The account monitoring will begin immediately after you purchase the time. You can manage your time in the Dasboard.

Statistics of likes will be available in a week.

How to block an Instagram account temporarily?

Instagram users can block an account temporarily (without having to delete it). Usually it is used when it is necessary to temporarily limit access to the account’s materials for a variety of reasons.

It’s worth noting that you can’t temporarily block an Instagram account with the help of the official application. It can only be done from a computer or in the browser of your smartphone.

To block your Instagram account temporarily, you should:

Step 1: Go to instagram.com and log into your account.

Step 2: Click in the upper right corner on the user’s photo, and then click “Settings

Entering the Instagram settings in the browser

Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the settings page and click “Temporarily disable my account

How to recover lost photos?

Quite often users immediately after posting photos to Instagram delete them from their smartphone. And if the user deletes his Instagram account, or for some reason, it is blocked – these photos will be lost. In addition, Instagram severely cuts the quality of the images, so if you need a photo in high resolution – there is no sense to download them from Instagram (besides, Instagram officially does not allow to do it).

In some cases, the data can be recovered. For example, if the photos were stored on a memory card of your smartphone, or on your computer.

To recover lost photos, use RS Partition Recovery, the best solution for recovering lost data.

The program is easy to use and supports ALL modern file systems, including ext3 and ext4, which are most often used in Android smartphones.

But the most important advantage of RS Partition Recovery is its deep scan mode, which allows you to recover photos that was lost even a few months ago.
