How To See Your Comments on Instagram
To see your comments on Instagram, tap on the three lines to open the popup, then tap on activity to navigate to the comments page.
When you see the comments on the activity page, you will see the post photo or thumbnail in a small form.
Yet, you can see the comment that you did on that post and other users’ comments as well.
It’s like opening the comment section without being able to see the photo.
Keep in mind that it happens in rare situations and for very old comments only with android phones only.
So in these cases, you need to visit the users’ account in order to see the photo or the post again.
It may sound unfamiliar to open the post and see it again as you can see all the comments already on the activity page.
But in case you would like to watch the video or see the photo again, you need to visit the Instagram account or open the same account using an iPhone to see the post directly.
1.Open your Instagram account
First, you need to navigate to find the navigation drawer.
To find it, open your Instagram account, then go to your profile page.
On the profile page, tap on the “Three Vertical Line” icon in the top right corner.
When you tap on the icon, a navigation drawer will pop up.
2.Tap on “Your Activity”
When the navigation drawer popups up, you need to navigate to the Activity page.
Tap on the third option on the popup which is “Your Activity”.
Then a new page will open, which is the Activity page.
On that page, you can see all your activities on Instagram such as the Time Spent, managing your Videos and Photos, Interactions (Comments, Likes, Replies), Account History, and more.
As you are focusing on the comments tap on the “Interactions” option.
Now that you’ve tapped on the “Interactions”, you will see three options which are Comments, Like, and Story replies.
Tap on “Comments” as you need to open the comments page.
After that, you will get to a new page where you can see all the comments that you made before on Instagram.
On the same page, you can see older comments by scrolling down.
4.Check the posts you’ve commented on
On the same comments page, pick any comment that you did on a post, and you would like to check by tapping on it.
You can tap on “Sort & Filter” to filter the results and make it easier for you to find your comment.
When you tap on it, you will get to the comments page of that post.
However, you can only see your comment and other comments on the same post.
So if you want to check the photo, you have to visit the Instagram account and find the post.
How To See Hidden Comments on Instagram
You can’t see the hidden comments of someone on Instagram unless they choose to unhide them.
Instagram added this feature back in 2019 as a privacy move to protect users from cyberbullying.
This feature hides all the bullying and harassing words that the comment could have.
So if you are the owner of the account, and you’ve hidden offensive comments already, you can unhide them.
To do so, go to “Settings > Privacy > Hidden Words > (uncheck) Hide Comments”.
Why Can’t I See My Comments on Instagram?
If you can’t see your comments on Instagram, it’s very likely because the account became private, and you’re no longer following it, or the comment was deleted.
There are other reasons that may cause you to not see your comments on Instagram.
These reasons are:
- The person may have blocked you then unblocked you (This removes all your comments on their posts and photos, and it can’t be retrieved).
- You may be facing a connection issue, so try checking after a while.
- The Instagram server may be down, so you can confirm this by visiting the DownDetector website.
- It’s possible that you were searching for the comments but can’t find them, so try to tap on the “Sort & Filter” on the comments page to filter the comments.
These are the possible reasons why you can’t see your comments on Instagram.
How to Undelete a Comment on Instagram
If a comment is deleted on Instagram, unfortunately, you won’t be able to restore it unless you undo the deletion within the first 3 seconds.
If you didn’t Undo the deletion you won’t be able to restore the comments anymore.
To undo the deletion, you need to tap on the undo when you see it at the top of the screen.
It’s an alert message that will close in 3 seconds, so if you missed it, the comment will be gone forever, and you can’t retrieve it.
However, one of the tips that you can follow to avoid getting the same problem again is to take a screenshot of the comment.
This will protect your comments and help you to see them again if you accidentally deleted them.
Comments on Instagram are an interesting way to see people’s opinions and understand their perspectives.
Sometimes a comment can make you laugh more than the video or photo if it was a funny post.
In addition to that, you may like to comment and share your opinion with other users.
So to see all of your Instagram comments, you can do it on Your “Activity > Interaction > Comments”.
Keep in mind that if you can’t find your comment or it was deleted you won’t be able to retrieve it.
Today you’ve learned how to see all of your Instagram comments.
