We tell you the reasons why a person’s Instagram stories do not appear to you.
If you have been noticing for some time that you see the publications of some of your Instagram contacts, but not the stories, you may be wondering why I do not see the Instagram stories of a person? We tell you what may be the causes.
Instagram is one of the most downloaded social platforms of the moment. In recent years it has had a steady growth worldwide.
In addition, from the application, it is possible to upload stories, which are audiovisual publications that can only be seen for 24 hours. These stories have become indispensable for both users and advertising brands.
If you have been an Instagram user for a long time and you see your contacts’ posts, but you have noticed that you do not see the stories of all of them, you may wonder why I do not see the Instagram stories of a person? We tell you the reasons below.
If you can not see an Instagram story of a person, but you see normally the stories of other contacts you have on the platform, the reason may be that the person of whom you do not see anything has hidden their stories.
If you have problems with viewing all the stories, it may be a problem with your mobile device. The best thing to do is to log out of Instagram, clear the app cache on your phone from settings and then log back into the app.

I can’t see someone else’s featured Instagram stories
If in addition to not seeing general stories you find that you can’t see someone else’s featured Instagram stories we give you the two main reasons why.
On the one hand, you may simply not see a person’s featured stories on Instagram because they don’t have any. User activity isn’t always the same and it may be days before he or she uploads content.
On the other hand, you may not see someone else’s featured Instagram stories because they have decided to hide them from you. One of the functions that the platform has with respect to stories is the possibility for each user to select the people they want to hide their story from.
This function of hiding stories is configured from the “Privacy” section of Instagram and can be activated or deactivated whenever you want.
How to know if I have been blocked on Instagram stories
I already know why a person’s Instagram stories don’t appear to me, but how do I know if I’ve been blocked on Instagram Stories. We explain.
Unfortunately, there is no option on Instagram to tell you if you have been blocked or hidden stories. Nor when they do will you get any kind of notification.
The only way to verify this fact is to visit their profile from another account if for example you use two accounts and you have that contact added in both. This will only work if he/she blocks you in one account, but not in the other.
You can also choose to ask users you know and have in common with the person you suspect has blocked you.
