Can I view my previously liked posts on my computer?

Checking Instagram on your computer has its advantages. Not only can you like, share, comment and upload images as posts, but you can also stay up to date with what the people you follow are posting.

However, there are also some limitations. While you can like posts on Instagram online, you can't check out posts you've liked in the past. This feature doesn't exist if you use Instagram through a browser.

This is another restriction that Instagram has imposed on its users, in addition to the ability to view only 300 liked posts in the app. Also, if you're wondering if you can see your previous comments, the answer is no.

How to view another person's previously liked posts from Instagram's iPhone app

It is human nature to wonder what our friends are up to and what they like. Sometimes you may want to see if your best friend likes the same posts as you. Unfortunately, you can no longer follow other people's likes on Instagram.

This feature was available until 2019, when Instagram decided to remove it, explaining that it wanted to protect users' privacy. While many celebrated the change, others did not, such as parents of minors who want to keep up with their activities.

So are there any options for people who want to see other people's previously liked posts? Some rely on third-party tracking apps, but these are neither legitimate nor usually very accurate.

There is such an option, but it has limitations and can be quite time-consuming. Suppose you want to see if a person you are following has liked a certain post. Here's what you can do if you're an iPhone user:

  1. Open the app and find the profile page of the person whose likes you want to see.

  2. Tap on "Next" section on their profile.

  3. Select any account they are watching.

  4. Browse posts, and if a person has liked a particular post, their name will appear below the post.

As mentioned, this can be time-consuming and will only work if you want something specific. One person could like all the posts of someone they are following, but they could also like just one.

Instagram's mobile app works the same way on iOS as it does on Android. Therefore, checking another person's previously liked posts is as inefficient as it is for iPhone users.

  1. Beginning Instagram and search for the account you want to investigate.

How to view another person's previously liked posts on Instagram on a PC

You can view other people's likes on Instagram in the same way as in the mobile app. You still can't see a neat list of all previously liked posts.

However, you can check specific posts and see if they have liked them. For example, if all you want is to see if a person you are following has liked the same post as you, their name will appear just below the post.

However, if more than one person has liked the same post, you will have to tap on the "likes" list to see if their name is there too. If you want to review another person's previously liked posts, follow these steps:

  1. Visit Instagram.com through your browser and go to the profile page of the person whose likes you want to see.
  2. Click on Next tab to see a list of accounts they are watching.

  3. Select an account and view posts to see if their name appears under certain posts.

How do I track the likes of my own posts?

Keeping up with likes on Instagram

In general, there are significant limitations when checking previously liked posts on Instagram. You can see the last 300 liked posts of your profile and that's it. In addition, you cannot access this feature over the Internet.

The situation is even more complicated with other people's liked posts. You don't have access to all their likes as you did in the past, and they can't see yours either. What you can do is see if they liked certain posts and pay attention to what they are interested in.
