If the profile is private, you may be wondering whether you’ll be able to achieve the results by replicating the same exact steps. Let’s learn whether we can do it or not.

NOTE – For educational purposes, we set our technometer.co Instagram account to Private and uploaded this video post.

And since we need the link, we’ll be copying it directly from our technometer.co account.

Head over to the video or reel published by someone whose Instagram profile is set to “Private.” If you don’t follow that person, then you need to ask someone who follows them to share the link with you.
