Facebook has been frantically trying to boost its data transparency.
Since Facebook owns Instagram, you can easily see a deep dive into your online activities using both apps. You can find a wealth of information on Instagram. You will, for example, see when you first entered Instagram, including the precise time. Instagram will inform you of any account privacy or password changes, as well as previous email addresses and phone numbers. You will see if you’ve used other usernames or full names. All of your previous “bio emails” and bio links will be available as well. A Connections section displays your latest follow requests, any accounts that follow you and accounts that follow you, as well as hashtags you follow.

It’ll even show you any accounts you’ve blocked or stories you’ve hidden from. Instagram keeps track of all of your account’s logins and logouts, as well as your search history. So, unless you’ve removed it, you’ll be able to find what you were searching for in 2012. Polls, emoji sliders, questions, music questions, countdowns, and quizzes are all included in the timeline of Stories you’ve interacted with. You may also look at “ads preferences” at the bottom, which indicates what Instagram thinks you want – and therefore shows you ads.
