View a private Instagram account using a mobile monitoring tool
If you want to take care of your family member (your kid, wife or husband) and get aware of what he/she posts on their private account without following, you can install a mobile monitoring tool on their smartphone, which runs in the background and allows you to know all kinds of activities on the Instagram. The tool I recommended is PanSpy, which is professional tool that designed for mobile monitoring and parental control. Let's see how it works below:
Step 1: Create a PanSpy account.
First of all, to start with the service, you need to create an account. Go to PanSpy official website and click SIGN UP on the upper right corner to create your account. You need to use a valid Email address and will receive the confirmation email, you may need to check junk or spam folder to find it. Simply click on the link to activate your account. And then you can sign in the account to continue.
Step 2: Install PanSpy on your kid's smartphone.
Once you successfully sign in your account on the console, you will see the setup wizard to walk you through.
Select Android and set a name&age on the page, and then it will ask you to download PanSpy app on your kid's device. So enter panspy.me on the browser address bar, download and install PanSpy app. Open it and sign in your PanSpy account, then you need to authorize the app. All Important permissions need to be authorized, and the Optional permissions are according to your own needs.
Step 3: View all Instagram activities on the console.
After you finish all the steps above, you can now sign in your PanSpy account on the Control Panel to view all Instagram activities on your kid's account even if it's a private account. It takes screenshot to allow you view all the photos and videos shared, and the conversations made on it.
