Anyways, if you accidently followed someone and quickly unfollowed them a few seconds later, they won't be able to know about it if and only if they're not online i.e. using Instagram at that moment. As it will quickly pop up a follow notification and then can see who followed them.
In respect to this, do you get a notification when someone unfollows you on Instagram?
People won't be notified when you unfollow them. Note: The only way to remove someone from your followers is to block them. When you block someone, the blocked person can't see your photos/videos or search for your Instagram account. The blocked person isn't notified when they're blocked.
How do you know if someone is following you on Instagram?
To find out if someone is following you on Instagram, you must search for yourself in the list of people they follow:
- Go to their profile.
- Tap their “Following” count.
- Type your own username. If you appear, they are following you. If it says “No users found” they are not following you.
Can you look at Instagram without an account?
Yasss, you can. You just have to insert their username where Instagram.com/username. However, if you're trying to see someone's private profile, then I'm afraid that you have to get an account to view their photos. But there is a way to see the profile pictures of any user without having an account.
