Checking out your liked posts on your Instagram accounts is super quick and easy.

You do not have to download any additional third-party apps on your smartphone and don’t need to check this out on some suspicious and potentially dangerous websites.

Note that you can see on your iOs or Android app store recommended apps that claim they can show you this data, but it’s absolutely unnecessary as you can do this within the app itself.

Similarly to checking out your saved posts, your data about likes on Instagram is available within a few taps.


Did Instagram get rid of posts you’ve liked?

No, Instagram hasn’t removed the posts you liked, but Instagram removed the option to see the like record of specific user activity. This means that you can only keep track of posts you liked, accidentally or on purpose.

Can I hide likes count on Instagram?

Yes, as much hype as there is for some people about seeing certain numbers in their likes on Instagram, not everyone is obsessed with that, so these people hide likes on Instagram posts.

Head to settings, and tap Privacy. You can tap on posts, toggle view counts, and hide like here. You can try this now and see how the follower count won’t be visible on your recent photos and videos.

Why can’t I find posts I’ve liked on Instagram?

Remember that liked posts on the app and the desktop viewer are to be found slightly differently. If you’ve followed all the steps, you should have no problem finding what you’ve already liked on Instagram.

Try checking your Internet connection and restarting the app, or check you have to update Instagram.
