Instagram records the viewing of Stories so that its users have control over their audience on the platform. Present in the app for iPhone (iOS) and smartphones with Android, the indication can be a problem for people who want to see posts from friends without them knowing it. With that in mind, we have prepared two solutions for viewing public profile stories without registering the visualization.
