Being Unfollowed Hurts!
Most people follow their friends on Instagram and vice versa. If you find that a close friend has unfollowed you, this could be a signal that they don’t like seeing your Instagram posts anymore, and are annoyed by you.
It’s even worse if you just went through a breakup to find that friends that you thought were on your side unfollowed you. And I don’t even have to explain what it feels like if you find out your crush has decided to unfollow you.
While you’re notified of new followers, Instagram itself won’t tell you who your unfollowers are. Luckily, we’ve found a few tools and apps that can tell you exactly who unfollowed you!
Five Best Instagram Tracker Apps
IG Analyzer: Follower Analytics
If you’re sitting there wondering how to know who unfollowed you on Instagram, then IG Analyzer is one of the best apps for you to status check your Instagram followers. Not only can you find out who unfollowed you, but you can return the favour by unfollowing them with the click of a button!
You can also mass unfollow people whose posts you don’t want to see, or people who are inactive on Instagram. IG Analyzer also checks other Instagram analytics, such as which of your followers likes your posts the most, and which of your posts gets the most likes, perfect for figuring out what kind of content your followers love the most.
UnFollowers For Instagram
The UnFollowers For Instagram app is very simple; it shows you new followers, unfollowers, followers who you don’t currently follow, and people you’ve followed you haven’t followed you back. With the paid version you also gain access to a bunch of other insight lists, such as users who frequently like or comment on your posts. If you don’t want to pay for the full version though, the free version is still an efficient app to see who unfollows you.
Followers Pro + For Instagram
Followers Pro + is another app that you can use to find out who unfollowed you. However, this app is meant more for users who use Instagram heavily because of its engagement and analytics tools. While you’ll still find out who unfollowed you, this is definitely catered more towards users who use Instagram for a living, such as influencers and businesses.
Unfollowing your unfollowers is a bit more intensive though since you’ll have to manually do it on the Instagram app itself, so be ready to switch between apps a lot. Followers Pro + also has the best-looking user interface of all the apps on this list, so you can browse through your Instagram analytics in style.
Followers Assistant gets my personal vote as my absolute favourite Instagram unfollowers tracker! There’s just something so wonderfully simple about it. You can easily check how many people unfollowed you and you can unfollow them back with the press of a button.
Followers Assistant is another app that’s catered towards heavy Instagram users, the combination of in-depth analytics and user-friendly design makes it a pleasure to use.
Followers Track For Instagram
Finally, we have Followers Track for Instagram. This app is definitely one of the simpler Instagram analytics trackers out there. It offers an interesting package; it allows you to see your unfollowers, new followers, and even see which users like your content but don’t follow you!
For an extra $1.99, you can unlock the full version of the app, which gives you the unique options of seeing who’s blocking you on Instagram, and who liked your posts and then went back and unliked them.
Bonus Tip: How To Make Someone Unfollow You
As with any social platform, Instagram has it’s privacy issues. It’s difficult to control who follows you and who sees your content. To force someone to unfollow you, simply go to your followers list, click on the three dots next to the name, and then click ‘remove follower’. Be sure to set your account to private afterwards so they don't follow you again.
