Instagram started demanding that the user be logged in with his account in order to be able to see photos, videos and even stories from profile pages. The change comes in a sequence of changes in the social network, which no longer allows users to follow the activities of others in the “Following” tab.
The novelty is already working and you can still open a profile that is not private by the browser and browse the first publications, but from a few scrolls through the list of photos and videos Instagram blocks the progress and requires an account to continue.
“Now, if you are not logged into Instagram, you will only be able to see a small number of posts on public profiles before you need a login,” commented Facebook in an official note. “This is to help people see photos on Instagram and understand how to get the best experience by being part of the community, connecting and interacting with people and things they love,” adds the company.
Until then, this was a method for tracking profiles that blocked you, but are open to anyone. Changing it can be a way of maintaining privacy in these cases, which can be a good thing.
