How to see if someone is logged into your Instagram and reading all your messages
WORRIED someone is snooping on your Instagram? There are ways to find out.
Someone else could be logged into your account, watching your every move.

Maybe you left your account logged in at a pals house – or worse still, a public computer.
Or maybe a hacker has nabbed your password, and is quietly snooping from afar.
Whatever the case, you’ll want to lock down your account immediately.
To find out who’s watching, load up Instagram and go to your Profile.

Then tap then Menu and go into Settings.
From there, you’ll want to tap Security and then Login Activity.
This is your hub for everyone login on your account, and is the best way to spot a snooper.
You can see all the places you’re logged, and when you signed in.
It’ll show the device you’re logged in on, and even a map of the exact location.
Of course, savvy hackers can fake these locations – so a login from China or Russia doesn’t necessarily mean the snooper is actually based there.
In any case, you can use this tool to quickly spot suspicious activity.
And you can tap each individual log-in to shut that person out of your account.
However, if someone has gained access to your account, you’ll need to change your password immediately.
And consider setting up two-factor authentication so your log-ins will be verified through another method – like a code sent over text.
