Have you ever wanted to show your friend a picture you liked on Instagram but just can’t find it? Don’t worry it’s probably happened to everyone at some stage. Rather than spending ages checking the profiles of people you think might have posted it, why not track it down the easy way, using the Instagram liked Folder. You’ll be forgiven if you’ve never heard of it before, it’s not in a place you’d generally search.
It’s so easy to open Instagram and get lost in the endless feed of pictures and videos, liking and forgetting them almost instantaneously, as something new grabs your attention. We all do it and it’s how Instagram has been designed. On occasions though, you might remember an awesome picture or video you really want to show your friends but can’t find it. That's where the Liked Folder come into play.
The Liked folder has been a part of Instagram for a very long time, however not that many people are actually aware of its existence. Inside the Liked folder you will be able to find the last three hundred photos and videos you have liked. Now 300 photos and videos for some people is going to be a lot and for others, 300 isn’t going to touch the surface, so depending on your usage, this folder may or may not go back very far. Anyway getting to the point. Below are the steps you need to follow to find the Posts you’ve Liked location.
How to View Photos and Videos you’ve like in Instagram.
The first thing you are obviously going to want to do is open your Instagram app. It doesn’t matter what device you are using, Android or iOS, the process is almost identical. When you have the app open, tap on your Profile, then tap on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of your screen to open the Settings menu.
From inside the settings menu, scroll down to the Accounts subheading. Here you will see the option Posts You’ve Liked. Tap this and you will be able to see the last 300 posts you've liked, in the order you liked them.
Hopefully, this information will save future you from searching countless profiles you think might have the picture or video you liked sometime last week… Or was it the week before… Either way, you're welcome.
A little side note that’s completely off topic. If you haven’t already done it, you should consider taking a few moments to set up Two-Factor Authentication on your Instagram account. It’s a super simple, effective way to prevent unauthorized access to your account, ensuring only you can gain access. Just select the option above Posts You’ve Liked and follow the steps provided.
