Instagram allows users to have private profiles where no one can see their content but their approved followers. Over the years you may have sent follow requests to several private account holders. If you can't remember who you have sent the follow requests to and haven't been approved by yet, Instagram has a feature that enables you to see the list of all your sent Instagram follow requests.
Here are the few steps to get to this quite a hidden list of all your sent Instagram follow requests
If you want to check out all the accounts you have requested to follow to be able to perhaps rescind your request, here is how to see that list:
- Go to your account page on the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android.
- Tap on the hamburger menu icon in the top right corner and then tap on Settings.
- Next, go to Security.
- Under Data and History, tap on Access Data.
- Now tap on the View All link for Current follow requests under Connections.
Over here you will see a non-clickable list of all the usernames you have sent follow requests to but haven't yet been approved by.
