Stalking on public Instagram accounts is no doubt a massive thing that people without Instagram accounts do. Now its almost impossible with this very small but extremely impact-full change.
In early October, Instagram decided to remove the 'Following' tab from its app in an effort to keep Instagram users' activity private. Now the company is moving towards not letting people browse public Instagram profiles without having an Instagram account.
Originally, normal people could search up a persons Instagram profile that they knew was under 'public' and browse through all of their photos and videos. Now, after a certain amount of videos, most likely one or two scrolls, Instagram will force pop-up a request to log-in or create an account. This pop-up cannot be navigated away from, essentially stopping any further Instagram stalking from happening until the user joins Instagram.
