However, if you are reading this guide, it is because you have decided yet that it is not the time to register. You want to first clarify your ideas on how many and which friends in your circle have actually made Instagram. For this reason you are trying to understand how to search for people on instagram without being subscribed.

We just have to wish you a good read and good luck for everything. We are sure that at the end of this guide you will no longer have any doubts about what to do.

Note: the only accounts that can be found and viewed without necessarily being registered on the service are the public ones. These are the profiles of those people who have set their accounts as freely viewable. Those set as private, on the other hand, will not be able to be viewed neither by Instagram subscribers nor by those who are not.

Use Google

The first method I recommend you to use is, trivially, Google. In fact, with the search engine you can reach the Instagram account that interests you without necessarily having to be part of it. And you don't even need the profile url. First, therefore, open the browser you usually use on your PC or smartphone, then go to the Google home page and type the person's name + "Instagram" (es. Mario Rossi Instagram).

After giving Enter on the keyboard, a results page will come out from which you should be able to find the profile you were looking for. It should be at the top, otherwise scroll down the screen a bit. You can also filter the search results so that only those coming from the Instagram site are displayed. To do this, just use the Google site operator: followed by

So, giving a concrete example, type in the Google search bar the name of the person you are looking for + Instagram site: (eg. Mario Rossi Instagram site: and then press the "Enter" key on the keyboard .


If using Google you have not succeeded in your intent, it is advisable to contact an external service. What I propose to you in this paragraph is It is a completely free and independent online software compared to Instagram. Through it you can search for public profiles and hashtags of the famous social network, without necessarily having an account on the same.

To exploit it, go to its official web page and click on the "Search" tab at the top. This will open a page where you will have to type the username of the person of your interest in the text field Search #tag o @user. At this point, all you have to do is click on the black "Search" button on the right to start the search.

Finally, in the "Users" section located a little further down, you can select the result relating to the account you wish to view (you can also understand this by looking at the associated profile image). Then you will have all the photos and videos posted by the user.


The last method we recommend is the one related to PeekYou: it is an online service with which you can identify the links to the social profiles of the person you are looking for. To use it go to its main page, select the "Name" tab in the center of the page and write the name of the person you are looking for in the text field called "First Name", while typing his surname where you see "Last Name ".

To start the search click on the magnifying glass. A page will open where you can locate the links in the "Instagram" section. Click on one of them to search for the account of the person of your interest.
