Instagram shows you the number of profile views

Instagram Business profile tips

Hey guys, I happened to notice my Instagram showing me the number of profile visits in the past 7 days. Quite strange that I can only see this on Instagram apps installed on Android mobile phones, and not on iOS or Apple mobile phones.

Here’s a screenshot:

How do I know the number of profile views on my Instagram profile?

(Remember you cannot see who viewed your profile, this feature is not available yet)

First of all, you can only view the profile count for the past 7 days only if you have a Business profile. Personal profiles do not allow you to see how many times your profile was viewed. (At least on this day as I write this post)

How do I switch my Instagram profile to a Business Profile?

It’s pretty simple! All you need is a Facebook page to convert your personal Instagram profile into a Business Profile page.

1. Tap on the three dots on the right to access the Settings menu.

Switch to Business profile page

2. Scroll down the menu and tap on Switch to Business Profile.

3. Swipe to the right as you read through the text and tap Continue.

4. If you are not connected to Facebook on your mobile, it will take you to a page to login. After you login, you will see the list of Facebook Pages you own. Just choose the page which relates to this Instagram profile, and your account is immediately switched from a personal profile to a Business profile.

Yes, if you do not have a Facebook Page, you cannot switch your personal profile to a Business profile.
