Can You See Who Views Your Highlights on Instagram

Instagram Highlights (Instagram Stories Highlights) is a part of your profile where you can display stories permanently. They won’t disappear after 24 hours and are still visible even after the original story has disappeared.

Accounts that you’re allowed to see your story can also view your highlights on Instagram. You can check who viewed your Instagram Stories and see the view counts.

Here comes the question. Can you see who views your Instagram highlights?

The answer is positive. You can check who viewed your Instagram highlights within the first 24 hours of posting and only for the Stories you set as highlights within that period because Instagram doesn’t log the views after 24 hours. You can check the view counters and viewer lists within 48 hours.

However, you can’t see how many times someone has seen your Instagram Highlights.
