Who can see when I've liked a photo, or when someone's liked my photo on Instagram?
When you like a photo, it's visible to anyone who can see the post. Your followers may also see your username below a photo you've liked, no matter how many likes it has (example: [your username] and 12 others).
After 4 likes, photos show the number of likes, along with usernames of some people you follow who have liked it.
If your account is set to private:
- Only your approved followers can see your posts, including any likes and comments.
- When you like a public post, your like will be visible to everyone and your username will be clickable below the post, but only approved followers can see your posts.
- Who can see photos that appear in Instagram Search & Explore?
- When I tag someone in a photo or video on Instagram, who can see it?
- Who can see my Instagram profile and photos on the web?
- What happens if I share my Instagram post to another social network?
- How do I turn off my activity status on Instagram?
