How can I track my ex’s activities on Instagram without following?

Can you really resist checking your ex’s Instagram after the breakup? Do you find yourself curious about their new life? Even though the relationship is over, part of you still cares, wonders if they’re doing well, if they’re happier without you, if they’ve moved on. I get it, you know. It’s human to care, to be curious. But it’s just as important to handle that curiosity the right way. There are tools that let you discreetly monitor their world, satisfying your curiosity without crossing ethical boundaries.

What is Dolphin Radar?

Dolphin Radar is an automated, anonymous, and legal way to keep an eye on the Instagram activities of people who matter to you — yes, including your ex. Without following their account directly, you can see whom they’re following, what posts they’re liking, and who they’re engaging with the most.

How you can track your ex’s Instagram account with Dolphinradar

  • Step 1: Head over to Dolphin Radar and sign up. Once you’re in, navigate to your Dashboard.

  • Step 2: Include your ex’s Instagram account in your tracking list. Keep in mind, Dolphinradar can only monitor public Instagram accounts. So, if your ex’s account is private, Dolphinradar won’t be able to keep tabs on it.

  • Step 3: After adding his/her Instagram account to the tracking list, all you need to do is sit back and wait for Dolphinradar to whip up a detailed analysis report for you.

Overview of Your Ex’s Instagram Activity

Dolphinradar provides a glimpse into your ex’s Instagram behavior over the last week. It covers their active periods on Instagram, updates in their follow list (both new follows and unfollows), the total likes they’ve given, and which accounts they engage with frequently.

Details on Likes

You’ll find an in-depth list of all the likes your ex has handed out on Instagram during the last week, covering which accounts caught their attention, the total count of likes, and the specifics of the content liked. Clickable user avatars and content take you straight to the relevant Instagram pages or posts. Remember, relationships end, and your ex will move on, experiencing new things and meeting new people.

Your Ex’s Instagram Interest Tags

Dolphinradar harnesses big data analytics to explore the content and accounts your ex has shown interest in, showcasing their updated interests through a tag cloud.

If you’re considering using Dolphin Radar to analyze your ex’s Instagram activity, here are some tips to help you decide:

  1. Safe and anonymous, it doesn’t ask for your personal info nor alert your ex, avoiding any awkwardness.
  2. Accurate data and reports quench your curiosity about your ex.
  3. Affordable subscription: I did some shopping around and compared prices with similar services. With an annual subscription, Dolphinradar offers the lowest rates at just $2.75 per month, making it an economical choice that’s easy to try.
  4. Dolphin Radar has its downsides too: it can’t monitor private accounts and you must subscribe to access reports.

Manually check your ex’s Instagram activities:

Of course, you could also manually check your ex’s Instagram activities:

Visit the Profile: Begin by going to your ex’s profile to start your search.

Explore Following List: Look at whom they’re following. This can clue you in on whose content they might engage with.

Browse Through Posts: Go through the posts of accounts your ex follows to check for their likes. You’ll need to view the list of likes on each post to see if your ex’s name is there.

Repetitive Process: Keep doing this for as many accounts as you deem necessary or until your curiosity is quenched. Note, this method relies on guesswork about where they might have left likes, so it’s not always accurate.


  • Time-consuming and Tedious: This approach can eat up a lot of time, more so if your ex follows many accounts or only occasionally likes posts.
  • Privacy Concerns: Digging into someone’s likes manually can lead to significant privacy and ethical issues. It’s an intrusive tactic that can feel like a breach of trust.
  • Potential for Inaccuracy: Finding the likes you’re looking for is hit or miss, especially if they’ve liked content on private accounts you can’t see or haven’t liked anything lately.


In wrapping up, Dolphin Radar presents an avenue to explore your curiosity guilt-free. However, it’s crucial to recognize that true healing stems from internal growth, not from monitoring your ex’s Instagram activities. Glancing back is natural, but progress demands we continue to move ahead. Employ Dolphin Radar judiciously, adhere to ethical standards, and allow it to aid in your path to closure, rather than serving as a reason to linger in what’s behind you.
