How to view Stories on Instagram anonymously?

A few years ago, the stories had a different meaning. In my childhood, the stories always used to relate to the thought of GrandMa stories. I used to love them. Today, the social networking platforms have redefined the word story with their stories feature. Among all of them, the stories on Instagram seems to popular than on other platforms.

But it would be impossible to watch a story without leaving your footprint. It means that the person who had posted the story would know that you had seen their update in the stories section by going to the list of viewers after opening their story. Do you want to view the story without letting the other person know about it? Then you are at the right place right now.

But, this way which we are going to share now will work only on the desktop and only if you have installed Google Chrome browser. Follow the steps mentioned below to view the story without leaving a footprint.

  • Launch the Google Chrome Application. If you don’t have it, download the Chrome browser.
  • After launching the Chrome browser, head to the Chrome Store to download the Chrome IG Story browser extension.

However, share us your views about the availability of anonymous watching feature on Instagram in the comments section below.
