Want to know if that special someone is watching your Instagram highlights or not? 

Or maybe you accidentally watched someone’s Instagram highlights and don’t really want them to know that you were stalking them?

This brings us to our question:

“Can You See Who Views Your Instagram Highlights?”

Throughout this article, we’ll be covering:

Let’s touch down on each of these sections one at a time.

Can You See Who Views Your Instagram Highlights in 2022?

As we all know, Instagram Stories disappear after 24 hours of uploading them. 

But, with Instagram Highlights, you can permanently add them to your profile in the “Highlights” section. 

While Instagram shows you who viewed your Instagram Stories, the same is not the case with Instagram Highlights.

If you are wondering whether you can see who viewed your Instagram highlights or not, the answer is both yes and no.

Instagram allows you to add your Instagram story as a highlight – as soon as you upload your story. While most people only add their Stories as Instagram Highlights after 24 hours (after their Stories have disappeared), some people don’t mind adding them immediately or before their Stories have disappeared.

So – if you are adding your Story to Instagram Highlights even before it has disappeared, then the viewers of your Story will appear as viewers of your Highlight.

However, once the Story disappears after 24 hours, you won’t be able to see who is separately watching your highlights. 

Let’s say you uploaded an Instagram story a year ago and added it to your highlights today. Now, if one of your new followers hops onto your profile and watches your highlight, then you won’t know whether he or she watched your highlight. 

It’s a matter of user privacy.

Also, it’s important to note that you won’t be able to see who viewed your Instagram Story and the viewer count – even if you add it as a highlight to your profile. 

Highlights are permanent – but their stats are not.

If you add one of your Stories as your highlight, you’ll only be able to see the viewer’s name and count of that story from the highlight section within 48-hours of the story being uploaded. But after 48 hours, you won’t have access to it.

Here’s what you’ll see:

That being said, let’s understand how you can see who viewed your Instagram Highlights.

How to See Who Viewed Your Instagram Highlights in 2022?

As I mentioned before, after the story disappears, you can’t see who viewed it separately from your Highlights section. So – if there’s a user “Dale” who didn’t view your Instagram story and watches your Instagram highlight after the story disappears, you won’t see Dale’s name in the Viewers list. But if Dale watches the Story while it’s still there, then his name will appear in the “Viewers” section.

Also, again – as we mentioned before, your viewer’s name and count will be removed after 48 hours of uploading the story. So, even if you add your story to your highlights section, you will only be able to see the viewer’s name and count within 48 hours of uploading the story.

You’ll have a 48-hours window.

So – if it hasn’t been 48 hours and you want to see who watched your Story while it was still there, here are the steps you should follow:

Step I – From the navigation bar at the bottom, click on your profile picture. And click on the icon of the highlight you want to watch the viewer’s name and count of.

Step II – Pull the highlight up from the bottom (BOTTOM to TOP) or just click on “Seen By.” And there you’ll be able to see the list of people who watched your Instagram story.

Again – this viewer’s names and count refers to the names and count of people who watched your Instagram story while it was there. This doesn’t include the names and count of the people who watched your Instagram story after 24 hours from the Highlights section.

Can You See How Many Times Someone Viewed Your Instagram Highlight in 2022?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. If you want to know whether a certain someone or special someone watched your Instagram story more than once or maybe more than ten or twenty times, you won’t be able to do so. 

Whether you see the Viewers Count directly from your Story feed or Highlights section, here’s what the “Seen By” section will look like:

It’ll only show the names of the people who viewed your Story and not the number of times they did.

I wish there was a way I could help you out with this. But there’s not. 

If I find out one, then I’ll definitely update this blog post.

Conclusion

You can only see who viewed your Story while it was still there via your Highlights section. Unfortunately, you can’t see who hopped onto your profile and separately clicked on your Highlights.

Also, you can only check the Viewer’s names and count of your Instagram story via your highlights section within 48 hours of the story being uploaded.
