You can share your day-to-day life with the help of images and videos inside the Instagram feed and stories.

You can even talk with other people with messages called Instagram DM’s.

It is also called Direct Messages.

Sending a direct message is pretty simple, all you need to go to your Instagram account in your mobile application.

In the top right corner, you can see the airplane icon that represents the direct messages.

You can send direct messages from this icon.

Just click on the icon and search for the profile you want to send the direct messages to.

Now, I’m gonna share with you some more hacks that will help you to stay interested in the Instagram application.

Suppose, as you see all the time, someone sends you messages on Instagram and suddenly they un-send the messages.

You may also be doing the same trick not to see messages by the people by un-sending the messages.

Now the question arises if I don’t want people to send the message or simply I can say that I want to see all the unsent messages how do I do that?

Now in our further discussion, we will discuss how we can see unsent messages.

There is an application called recent notification.


You need to download the application on your mobile phone.

You can find the application inside the Play Store.

After downloading the application whenever anyone sends you a message or any type of notification from any application, it will be stored inside the application called recent notification.

Now you can read the notification later whenever you want to read it.

If you still can’t get access to your deleted Instagram DMS then you can follow a more simple trick to get back to your DMS.

Simply go to your Instagram DM tab by clicking on the top right airplane icon and search for the user you have deleted the messages then ask him/her to get back to your messages.

You can ask them to resend the previous messages so that you can read them again.

If the user has not deleted the messages from their devices then you can get access to the messages.

If they deleted the messages then that is the only way I have already discussed above.

If the user deleted the messages then now you can see one more trick to get back to your DMS.

It’s optional and for those who have a business account.

If you have an Instagram business account and you connected your business account to your official Facebook page then you can consider going to your Instagram inbox from your Facebook page.
