How To Track Someone’s Location On Instagram

People have their own reason to track down someone’s location on Instagram, we don’t want to discuss the behavior, this post only focuses on how to track someone’s location on Instagram. There’re 2 ways to trace someone’s location without them knowing.

1. Check the location on the posts

Instagram offers a useful built-in location search feature that allows users to put their location on photos and stories when they post on their Instagram accounts for free. You can see many posts have a location option where the users get to display the location on their pics or stories.

So it’s quite easy to track the location of someone’s Instagram account by checking their recent posts and stories updates. If you want to view a private Instagram account, you have to send a follow request and wait to be approved.

While this method can’t help you find the real-time location of someone on Google Map. Move to the next method.

If you want to know who’s behind an Instagram account, you can run a social media search to find out. There are many websites and apps that allow you to track mysterious Instagram accounts and find out where and who are they. While a reliable social media account lookup service can help you verify the owner’s identity easily, finding a good service isn’t easy.
