My Instagram feed doesn't have any photos or is only showing a limited number of photos.

There aren't any photos in my feed

If there aren't any photos in your feed when you tap the Home tab, it's possible that you either aren't following anyone on Instagram or the people you're currently following haven't added any new posts since you last checked.

Your feed shows recent photos uploaded by you and the people you follow, while your profile shows all the photos you've taken on Instagram. To view all your own photos, tap or your profile picture in the bottom right.

I only see a limited number of photos in my feed

The reason you may see a limited number of photos in your feed is because it shows recent photos shared by people you follow. Some of the photos you may have seen in feed when you first signed up for Instagram are no longer shown here because they're older and have been replaced by new photos.

If you'd like to view all of someone's photos, you can go to their profile by tapping their username.
