How to Read Instagram Messages without Being Seen?

Almost everyone has had one of those Instagram direct messages that makes him/her wonder how to read Instagram messages without being seen. Is there really such a solution? YES! Actually, there are more than one way to read Instagram messages without being seen; the question is what is the easiest way!

HERE’S YOUR SHORTCUT: Among all the tricks that I’m going to introduce, using AiGrow to read Instagram messages without being seen is the easiest and the most guaranteed way. Besides, it’s totally free!

1. Data/Wi-Fi Off

The first way to read Instagram messages without being seen is to disable your data or WI-FI connection throughout the process. Let’s do it together, step by step:

  • Step 1: After receiving direct messages on Instagram, open the app and go to the direct messages page (don’t open any conversations)
  • Step 2: Now disable your data or WI-FI connection
  • Step 3: If you open the unread messages while your internet connections is turned off, it won’t be marked as seen

WARNING: If you use this trick to read Instagram messages without being seen, the moment you turn on your internet connection, the messages will be marked as seen. In other words, the “seen” mark will be avoided as long as you’re offline.

2. Data/WI-FI off & Log Out

This second way to read Instagram messages without being seen is very similar to the first way; the only difference, however, is that you can be online and the messages won’t be marked as seen.

So let’s go through this way step by step:

  • Step 1: Once you receive a direct message, go to the conversation page in the app without opening any messages.
  • Step 2: Turn your data or WI-FI connection off
  • Step 3: Open the conversation you want to read
  • Step 4: After reading, log out from your Instagram account. Make sure that your internet connections is still turned off as you’re logging out.
  • Step 5: Now turn on your internet connection, open the app, and log in to your account.

After logging in, you’ll see that the conversation you just opened to read is still marked as unread.


3. Read Instagram Messages without Being Seen via Restriction

Restricting other people’s accounts to read Instagram messages without being seen serves the purpose, but comes in with more cons than pros.

Let’s start with the cons, so you can make your mind if you still want to use this method. If you restrict an account:

  • You will not be able to see their posts and stories
  • If the user leaves any comments for you, only you and the account will see them
  • You can’t reply to their direct messages unless you un-restrict them
  • You will not be able to see any photos or videos they’ve sent you via direct messages

Still want to restrict accounts to read Instagram messages without being seen? Then follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Find the account you want to restrict and open it
  • Step 2: Touch the “three dots” option and choose “Restrict Account”
  • Step 3: Verify your request to finalize the restriction

Now you’ve successfully restricted the account; if you receive any messages from that account, it will be in the form of message requests; naturally, the seen mark is not shown form message requests.

4. Read Messages Secretly through AiGrow Inbox

Compared to the previous methods I just introduced, this one is way better and easier.

5. Reading Direct Messages via Email

One of the valuable services offered by AiGrow that lets you read Instagram messages without being seen is the “DM to Email” option.

It’s very similar to the previous method; here’s the step by step guide:

  • Step 1: Log in to your dashboard and open the “Direct Messages” tab
  • Step 2: Verify your Email address (an email with a link will be sent to your Email inbox)
  • Step 3: Now whenever you receive a direct message on Instagram, you’ll also get an Email.
