On my MacBook Pro I checked out an Instagram account that was private. I clicked "request" but cancelled it after several seconds. I did this a couple time always cancelling after several seconds. Will that person still get the request to follow them even though I quickly cancelled the request?

Hello Sir/Madam. Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. If you revoke your request, following things can be happen:

  • The person you requested to follow WILL SEE your request if they installed Instagram app on their phone and pay attention to their phone’s notifications.
    • if you revoke your request before they tap on their phone’s notification, they will not be able to see your request NOR will they see a notification about it in their in-app notifications
  • the person you requested to follow WILL SEE your request if they were using Instagram at the time you sent your following request
    • if you revoke your request before they check their in-app notifications tab, they will not be able to see your request NOR will they see a notification about it in their in-app notifications
  • the person you requested to follow WILL NOT SEE your request if you revoke your request before they refresh their in-app notifications tab

Regards

I have been following a person on Instagram for several years. Today I accidentally clicked the "following" icon and it deleted me from following them. When I tried to follow them again it said it was a private account and I would have to send a request. It is possible to follow their private account WITHOUT me sending a request? If yes, how can I do it?

No, it is not possible. When you accidentally clicked on that button, you unfollowed (cancelled the following) him/her. Because of of hi/her account is private to follow him/her again, you need to send request and he/she need to accept the request.

I understand that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me where I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Regards

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
