Instagram introduced a new security measure for private accounts

Now access to Instagram following and follower lists is restricted to all users except the profile owner.

Meta's Instagram social network will increase security measures for private accounts and restrict access to the follower list for all users except the profile owner. Platform representatives will close users' accounts and notify them of the new feature in a relevant message.

"In order to protect you, we have temporarily hidden the list of following and follower in your personal accounts. Only you can see whom you are watching and who is watching you”, the statement said. However, the social network does not allow you to disable the new feature.
