Instagram Feature: How To See What You Viewed On Instagram

Instagram allows us to share our pictures with our friends and if we compare it with other social apps, we might find it difficult in terms of sharing any kind of link through Instagram. When we use Instagram, a lot of posts appear on our Instagram feed and most of them have links. This app also provides us with the feature of links in-app which means you will be able to open the link you just clicked without leaving the app, and there is no need to open it using any other browser.

Instagram also keeps a track of each visited link. While checking out the stories of your friends, at times you will see an ad in the middle. Though after some time you might not remember the name of the brand or the product itself. But you can get the information via Instagram. It keeps a record of your history and what kind of ads you have gone through in your feed or the middle of the stories. You have an option to check out the recently seen ads on Instagram directly on your mobile.

Though there might be some differences in the steps if the choice of platform differs (android or iPhone). We will be explaining both platforms.
