We're all guilty of harmlessly snooping Instagram accounts we'd never feel comfortable "hearting" the pics of, whether it be the crush who has no idea you exist or the uber chic girl whom you blatantly rip off #ootd ideas from. Unfortunately, stalking other people's pics on the 'gram can seriously backfire: what happens if you double tap a photo and send a notification to the ex-boyfriend you've totally been stalking? Don't fret: there's an app for that now, and it's called Instasnoop.
According to Seventeen, the app was created by model Olivia Orchowski and entrepreneur Nic Davidson after being inspired by Olivia's own Instagram stalker tendencies. (Girl, we've been right there with you.) Once you download the app and hook it up to your own Instagram feed, you'll see it's pretty similar to actually Instagram, but with a few important changes. You can't actually like someone's photos in Instasnoop or comment on their pics, and you can't add any friends via the app, either. You can, however, place any account on your "snoop list," which is basically the list of people you Insta creep on the hardest and want quickest access to.Another feature of Instasnoop that has absolutely nothing to do with snooping? The fact that you can zoom in on pics! Simply pinch the screen the way you would with any other non-Instagram photo and you can enlarge the photo. (A bonus of the zoom technology? It's the reason you can give your friends when they ask why you downloaded Instasnoop in the first place.)
So is Instasnoop worth it? If you're desperate to scroll through someone's crazy old pics and don't want to have to deal with the repercussions of a way-too-late "heart," or are just too embarrassed to admit that you pic-stalk a near stranger, then I say, go ahead. We all have our vices, and Instasnoop lets us explore our somewhat embarrassing social media habits without fear of judgement.
