Preliminary information

Before going into the heart of the article and explaining yourself how to see who silenced you on instagram, it seems to me only right to provide you with some preliminary information regarding the procedure in question.

First of all, I want to explain to you exactly what the function that allows you to silence other Instagram accounts consists. As its name suggests, the function in question allows you to silence everything concerning the posts and / or stories of the users followed, without having to resort to unfollow and without having to block them. If you remember correctly, I have described the function that allows you to silence other Instagram accounts in this other guide.



Since Instagram does not send any notification to the user who is silenced, in fact it is not possible to know if you have been silenced, let alone by which people. What is possible to do is "investigate" in various ways and thus groped to find out who has stopped following their posts and their stories but, as just said, it is not possible to carry out checks that give absolute certainty of the thing.

If everything is clear to you so far and you really want to proceed, all you have to do is continue reading and applying the suggestions I am about to give you. With a bit of luck and an investigative spirit, you might at least be able to figure out who might have silenced your Instagram account.

How to find out who silenced you on Instagram

Let's see, therefore, how to find out who silenced you on instagram analyzing the likes, comments and even the views of the stories. In this way, you will be able to collect useful information on who may have decided to silence your account on the photo social network.


Analyze the "likes" you receive on posts

The first thing I recommend you do to try to identify who has silenced your Instagram account is analyze the "likes" received on posts. If a user used to like your posts and has not done so for some time now, it may be that they do not see the new content you post, perhaps because they have blocked their view.


How can you manage to analyze the likes you receive? To proceed from mobile devices, access Instagram from its app for Android or iOS, tap the icon of thelittle man located in the lower right corner (or on the thumbnail of the your profile photo, in case you have added multiple accounts in the Instagram app) and presses onpreview of one of the latest posts you published in your feed.

Next, tap on the item [Username] and other people like it and, in the text field Search placed at the top (immediately below the number of likes received), type the user's name that you think has decided to silence your posts. If he did not like the post under consideration, you will see the writing appear No users found.

If you want to act from PC, access Instagram from its web version or its application for Windows 10, click on the your username (top right), scroll the page displayed and analyze the latest posts you have published.

Then click onpreview of one of them and click on the item [Username] and other people like it and then scroll through the list of users who have liked, going to the search for the user who you think has decided to silence your account (on the desktop version of Instagram it is not possible to use the search function).


Whether you are working from mobile or PC, repeat the operation just described for other posts (perhaps those you have published in the last 3-4 weeks) and, if you notice that starting from a certain date the "suspect" user does not has more interacted with the content you posted on Instagram, it may be that it actually silenced your account (or at least your posts).


Analyze the comments you receive on posts

The speech made for the likes also applies to Comments: If a user used to comment on your posts before and now they don't, they may have silenced you. For this reason, I invite you to analyze the comments you receive on posts. Let me tell you how you can do this.

If you prefer to act from mobile devices, access Instagram from its app for Android or iOS, tap on thelittle man located at the bottom right or on the thumbnail of the your profile photo (if you have added multiple accounts in the Instagram app) and then press onpreview of one of the latest posts you have published on the platform.

Later, if comments are available, tap on the item View all and [N] comments and then scroll the screen Post comments that is shown to you, looking for a comment made by the person you think has silenced your account.

If you prefer to act from PC, access Instagram from its web version or its application for Windows 10, click on the your username (top right), scroll the page displayed and analyze the latest published posts. Then click onpreview of one of them and scroll to the right of the opened box, looking for any available comments from the user who you think has decided to silence you on Instagram.


Whether you are working from the mobile version of Instagram or from its desktop version, repeat the operation just described for other posts (perhaps those you have published in the last month) and, if you find that starting from a certain date the "suspect" user has not commented on your posts anymore, it may be that he has silenced them for real.


Analyze the views of the stories

If you want to know how to see who silenced you Instagram stories, I advise you to analyze the views of the stories same: obviously you have to do this before they are automatically deleted 24 hours after their publication. If a user used to view your stories almost always and now they don't, in fact, this could indicate that they have muted them.

To proceed from mobile devices, access Instagram from its app for Android or iOS, tap on your profile photo placed in correspondence with the wording The tua storia (top left) and, in the opened screen, presses on the wording Views (lower left). On the screen People who viewed that has opened, then tries to see if the name of the "suspect" user appears.

If you prefer to act from PCinstead, access Instagram from its web version or its application for Windows 10, click on the your profile photo (top right, in correspondence with your username), click on the wording Displayed by [N] and scroll the box Views appeared on the screen, searching for the user you think has silenced your stories.

I advise you to monitor the stories for at least 1-2 weeks following the procedure I have just indicated: if in all this period of time the "suspect" user never appears in the list of those who have viewed the stories, it may be that silenced them.
