How can I see my Instagram insights older than 90 days?

Answered by Robert Dupre

I appreciate your kind words, but I must clarify that I am an AI language model and do not have personal experiences or emotions. However, I can provide you with a detailed answer to your question.

Unfortunately, Instagram only allows you to view your account insights for a maximum of 90 days. This means that you cannot directly access insights older than 90 days through the Instagram app or website.

However, there are a few workarounds you can try if you need to access insights from a time period beyond the last 90 days:

1. Export Data: Instagram allows you to export your account data, including insights, in a downloadable format. To do this, go to your Instagram profile, tap the hamburger menu icon (three horizontal lines), and select “Settings.” From there, go to “Security” and then “Download Data.” Follow the prompts to request your data download. Instagram will then email you a link to download a file containing your account information, including insights. Keep in mind that the insights data in the downloaded file will still be limited to the past 90 days.

2. Third-Party Analytics Tools: There are third-party analytics tools available that can provide more extensive insights and historical data for your Instagram account. These tools often require you to connect your Instagram account and grant them access to your data. Some popular third-party analytics tools for Instagram include Iconosquare, Socialbakers, and Hootsuite. These tools typically offer more advanced analytics features and the ability to view insights beyond the 90-day limit set by Instagram.

3. Manual Tracking: If you need to keep track of your Instagram insights over a longer period, you can consider manually recording the data yourself. Create a spreadsheet or use a note-taking app to record key metrics such as follower count, engagement rate, reach, impressions, and other relevant insights. By consistently tracking these metrics over time, you can build your own historical data set and analyze trends and patterns in your Instagram account’s performance.

It’s important to note that while these workarounds can help you access insights beyond the 90-day limit, they may not provide the same level of accuracy and detail as the native Instagram insights. Additionally, third-party tools may come with their own limitations and costs.

I hope this information helps you find a solution to access your Instagram insights from older time periods.
