Can someone find out if you've been viewing their videos on Instagram?

Instagram has always been pretty private when it comes to its notifications — the social media platform doesn’t notify other users when you look at their profile or screenshot their posts. But when Instagram Stories came out, IG revealed that you could see a list of anyone who has viewed your Instagram Story.

Does this mean that Instagram’s notifications have changed recently? You might be asking yourself: Can someone see if I watch their Instagram video and how many times I watch it?

It’s always good to know how an app or social media platform’s notifications work before you start creeping on all your ex’s video posts left and right.

But lucky for you, someone can not see if you watch their Instagram video or how many times you watch it. Another person can only see how many times their video post has been viewed total. They cannot see which individuals have watched the video or how many times each

They will, however, be able to see if you like their video post, just be careful not to double-tap if you don’t want them knowing you saw it.

The only way someone can see if you’ve watched their video on Instagram is if you watch their Instagram story.
