3. By the user’s profile
If you want to know if a specific profile follows you, access the account and then tap on the number of «following». Then enter your own username in the search. If your account is displayed, then the person follows you. However, it is worth remembering that private accounts do not allow non-followers to access the list of friends.

There are many third-party apps that are intended to manage Instagram followers, such as Followers Assistant, available only for Android phones. When using the app for the first time, scroll to the end, agree to the agreement and grant the necessary permissions. Touch «Continue» and log in to your account. Now, just go to «Follow back» and tap on update. The app will inform your followers in a list, and allows you to use different filters, such as «follow back» etc., to view the data differently.
