Is it possible to See the Links You’ve Clicked on Instagram? You often have clicked on links on others’ bio while browsing Instagram feeds or the links shared in Instagram Story or Direct Messages.
The Instagram app contains a built-in web browser that helps to visit those types of links. Although, Instagram users don’t have access to the history of all the links they have visited from their native web browsers. And this is true in both the cases of iPhone and Android devices.
But fortunately, the Instagram app has the feature of storing the history of all of your previously visited links. This gives us an option to revisit the links if we want to.
On the Instagram app, It is easy to find and see the list of all the links you’ve clicked on in the Section known as “Your Activity”. Besides having access to view and revisit all the previously visited links, you can also hide some or all the links from history.
In this post, we will walk you through how to see the links you’ve clicked on instagram. Furthermore, how to delete link history and is it possible to see the visited links on Instagram using desktop.

How to See the Visited Links on the Instagram App
Step 1: Launch the Instagram app.
Step 2: Tap your display profile picture at the bottom-right corner of the screen to access your profile page.
Step 3: Being in the profile section, tap the three-bar menu icon in the top-right corner.
Step 4: A list of several options will appear. Out of them, select ‘Your Activity’.
Step 5: Tap the Links you’ve visited.
Now, you will be able to see all the previous links you have ever visited on Instagram. They will appear in chronological sequence.
You can also see thumbnails, titles, URLs, and dates of these visited links. You can revisit them anytime you wish to by tapping on any links.
How to Delete the Link History
Instagram allows its users to delete the links they have clicked. This is very useful when you don’t want to mess up the Links Page with unwanted links.
If you are an iPhone user, swipe left the links and tap Hide. For Android users, long-press the link and then tap Hide.
If you want to delete the entire history of links, tap Hide History and Select Hide. It will automatically remove all the links from your page.
Important Note: Once you have hidden all the links, they will be deleted permanently, and you can’t recover any of them. Though after hiding them, there’s no option to unhide the links back again.
Is it Possible to see the Visited Links on Instagram Using Desktop?
The answer is Yes. Unlike the Instagram app, the Instagram web version doesn’t have a built-in browser to open links. Instead, they are open in your native internet browsers. Therefore, you can easily check and revisit all of your previously visited links on your Instagram desktop by using the history of your internet browser.
However, the links will not be arranged in sequence as in the Instagram app. You may need to search manually from your browser’s history to find the links you have visited earlier on the Instagram web.
