For Instagram stories, you can also see exactly who has viewed the a video story while it’s still live. However, for video posts, you can’t identify all the users who’ve watched your video, but you can still see the total number of views and users who’ve liked the posts.
Does viewing your own Instagram video count as a view?
- The answer is that when you post your video on your Instagram profile and you watch your own video for more than 3 seconds then Instagram will count it as an Instagram view. You will see a count rise up when you view your own video for 3 seconds or more.
Can you see who watches your videos?
Unfortunately, views on a YouTube video aren’t like views on your Instagram story — you can’t see what users are watching your videos.
How can you see who views your Instagram?
Open your Story by tapping Your Story at the top left. Swipe up on the screen. You’ll see the number of people and account usernames of those who have viewed each photo or video in your Story. Only you are able to see this information.
Can you see how many times someone viewed your Instagram video?
Instagram lets you see how many times your videos are viewed. Below a video, you can see a number which denotes the number of individual times the video was viewed for at least 3 seconds. Video loops don’t count—if someone watches your loop 1000 times, you still only get credit for one view.
How can I watch someones Instagram videos without them knowing?

- Tap on the Story to pause it, and then slowly and carefully swipe in the direction of the Story you want to view.
