Despite using the app regularly you may not be aware of a sneaky trick which allows you to figure out how many people have saved your pictures on Instagram.

To do this you need to switch to an Instagram Business Profile. Go to Settings and tap the ‘Switch to Business Profile’ tab where you will be connected to a Facebook business page and simply choose a category for your profile.

You will be asked to provide basic information such as an email address, phone number or personal address.

Once all this is done you can move on to check who saved your photo by tapping on the ‘View Insights’ option. Instagram will give you a breakdown of the number of times the photo has been saved.

The option also enables you to check how many users it has reached and the number of profile visits you have received because of the photo.

This feature is extremely useful for influencers who can easily check which photo was a hit amongst their followers.

“With a professional account, you'll be able to access business features and Instagram Insights. These tools can help you understand who is engaging with your business on Instagram,” explained Instagram.

“You also have the option to display or hide your business category and contact information on your profile.”

However, If you no longer wish to continue with a business profile you can easily switch back to a personal profile any time.
