As all, we know Instagram is a visual content-sharing and engaging platform.

5. Can’t even text but you can share many more things privately.

6. There is one more option, if you have a business or creator’s account, it can help you out. It’s called a quick reply.

You can set the predefined templates. The templates can contain plain text and emojis.

When someone sends you a query about your products or services or someone sends you a usual message like thanks, appreciate, I need help, etc.

You can set a predefined text for these messages.

You can send a quick reply with just a single tap.


So these are the features of Instagram DM’s.

I hope you learned a lot more things.

Now move forward to the main context, How do you know if someone has seen your text or not?

There can be two case studies, the first one is if the guy you sent a message to is your follower and the second case would be, that he/she may not be your follower.

Let’s figure out both of these cases:

1. If the guy you’re sending a message to your follower:

If this is the case when you send someone a direct message on Instagram, if that guy will see your message then you’ll see a “seen” text at the bottom of the text.

That seen text means the guy has already seen your message.

The message can be anything, you’ll definitely see a seen text whether you’ll send the text, images, or videos you’ll see the seen text.

If you interact with an Instagram direct message group.

Yes, you can even create an Instagram message group where you can add up to 15 people inside the group.

When you’ll send a message inside the group the message will only be seen by those people who are inside the group.

If you’re sending a direct message inside the group then you’ll see an eye icon when someone will see your message.

When you click on that eye it’ll load (like Instagram stories) all people who see your message.

2. If the guy, is not your follower:

This is pretty interesting and a lot of people are stuck here on this part.

Maybe you’re stalking someone on Instagram and you’re continuously sending direct messages, that person may be your crush, friend, neighbor, etc.

You want interaction with the person on Instagram DM’s and for that, you’re continuously sending the DM’s but you don’t have any idea whether the guy receiving and seeing your messages or not.

Here is the solution guide for you.

When you send a direct message to unknown people then the person to whom you’re sending the message will receive a message request.


It’s up to that guy if he/she has seen your message or not. If seen that doesn’t mean you’ll get the read receipt until he/she clicks on the accept tab at the bottom of the text.


There are basically two tabs the first one is the accept and the second one is the ignore. It’s up to that guy whether he/she accepts it or ignores it.

If after seeing the message the person to whom you send the message clicks on the accept tab you’ll quickly get the read receipt.

If the person ignores it you won’t get anything and you can’t judge whether the message is seen or not.

These are the best ways to know if someone read your message or not.

Whether they may have your followers or not.

Now I’m gonna share with you one more trick that will help you out to be more private.

Suppose you want to see someone’s direct message without knowing how you will do that.

Now in my further discussions, I’m gonna share with you this amazing hack.
