Instagram is a great platform to share photos and videos and show-off your photography skills. And, when people post something on Instagram, they expect a lot of Likes on their posts, as it’s a matter of “pride” for them. Well, it’s a natural human tendency after all. However, people often also boast about the number of followers they have on Instagram, because many think the higher the number of followers a certain account has, the better it is.
Well, everyone likes to have more number of followers. While Instagram does notify users when someone follows them, it doesn’t do the same when someone unfollows. The reason for this is only best known to Instagram. Of course, it’s not impossible to check who unfollowed you on Instagram. You can always cross-verify your ‘Followers’ and ‘Following’ list to do so, but, it can be cumbersome, time consuming and turn out to be a highly inefficient method if you have hundreds or thousands (or even more) of followers.
That said, even if it there’s no easy way to check who unfollowed you on Instagram from within the official app, there are, luckily, some third-party apps available in the market that let you check who unfollowed you on Instagram. If you are a social media manager or an influencer on this Facebook-owned photo/video sharing app, finding out unfollowers can turn out to be useful for myriad reasons. So, do you want to know how to check who unfollowed you on Instagram? Yes? Well then, read on.
How to check who unfollowed you on Instagram
Step 1: Download the ‘Unfollowers for Instagram‘ app from Play Store.
Step 2: Now login to this ‘Unfollowers for Instagram’ app with your Instagram account whose unfollowers you want to find out.
Step 3: As soon as you login with your Instagram account in this app, you will be presented with a list of people/brands that don’t follow you back. Well, to check who unfollowed you on Instagram, just swipe left on the screen and you will be shown a list of people who recently unfollowed you on Instagram.
Besides, on the main screen of the app, you can tap on the ‘rewind button‘ located at the bottom-right corner to see your unfollower history.
That said, do note that this app only lets you check who unfollowed you on Instagram only from the time you installed it on your smartphone. It won’t show you your unfollowers from the time before you installed the app. Moreover, as this isn’t a paid app, it will keep showing you advertisements at the top, which can turn out to be annoying.
However, we have been using this app since more than a month now and don’t really have much complaints about it. Also, apart from letting you check who unfollowed you on Instagram, this app also shows you your mutual followers and your “fans”.
We don’t know if and when Instagram will let users check their unfollowers from within the official app, hence, until then, you will have to rely on third-party apps like ‘Unfollowers for Instagram’ to check who unfollowed you on Instagram.
