Although the invention of social media is seen as a boon to mankind, there are related factors that users fear.
Stalking other members on platforms is one such issue that has caused debates since the inception of social networking apps.
To counteract this problem, TikTok recently introduced the Profile Views feature, which allows users to see who has visited their accounts.
Instagram doesn’t have this feature yet and users of the photo-sharing platform have now claimed that they don’t want it.
Instagram has not rolled out the feature
Ever since TikTok introduced the Profile Views option, social media users have been curious if there is a way to find out who viewed your account on Instagram.
However, the photo-sharing app has not indicated that it will bring this feature to its platform.
At the time of writing, Instagram only allows users to see who’s viewed their Highlights and Stories.
How to disable profile views on TikTok
The feature was recently made available on TikTok and some users are unsure how it works.
Although the thought of someone following you is scary, the feature only works if both users have it enabled to be seen.
If you want to turn it off, do the following:
- Open your TikTok profile
- Select the three dashes in the top right corner and choose the eye icon
- You’ll see the Disable Profile View History option if you’ve already enabled it.
- Select “Turn Off” to disable the feature.
If the Profile Views option is disabled on your profile, other TikTokers will not know when you view their account, even if they have it enabled.
Instagram users are against it
Several panicked Instagram users have urged the platform not to roll out the feature after TikTok rolled it out.
“If they ever rolled out profile views on Instagram, I’m screwed.” wrote a.
Add another tweet to the above divided: “Hopefully Instagram and Twitter don’t add the profile view option.”
Another user tweeted: “Instagram, please don’t add the profile view feature, thanks.”
