If you’re trying to use Instagram to get the inside scoop on someone, you might be surprised by how little information is publicly available. Sure, you can see the person’s posts, but unless they’re someone who shares a lot of personal insights in their posts, you won’t find much.
That’s where an Instagram tracking tool like Snoopreport comes in handy. Not only does it give you valuable information about just about any Instagram user, but it does this without the need to hack or break into anyone’s phone or install any apps. Let’s take a closer look at this innovative tool and what it can do for you and your Instagram recon.

What Is Snoopreport and How Does It Work?
Snoopreport is an Instagram activity tracker that can give you a weekly summary of the activity for any Instagram account that isn’t private. Once you begin tracking an account, Snoopreport will log the activity for that account – posts they’re liking, accounts they’re following, and so on. Each week, it compiles all that data for you into one comprehensive yet usable report that gives you the inside scoop on who and what content the person is interactive with on Instagram.
There are many Instagram activity trackers out there, but Snoopreport is unique because unlike most, it doesn’t require you to install a tracking app on a person’s phone to track their Instagram activity. In fact, you can track accounts of people you don’t know – there’s no need to access their phone or passwords. The tracking is discreet and simple yet informative.

Most Instagram tools are online phone tracking applications, so there are limitations in getting them to work on different devices. Snoopreport, on the other hand, is just a web-based tool so you can access it in the web browser from any device that has internet access. Androids, iPhones, desktops, laptops, tablets, you name it – if it has web access, it’s compatible with Snoopreport.
The features are the most appealing part of any app or tool, and the same is true for Snoopreport. What types of information will you get with a Snoopreport for an Instagram account? Let’s break it down.
Posts the User Has Liked
On Instagram, you might occasionally see a post on your newsfeed that has been liked by an account you follow. Other than pure luck, though, there’s no way to see what posts a particular account has liked…unless you use Snoopreport.
In each weekly report, Snoopreport shows you a list of all the posts that your tracked account has liked. You can click to see the full post and if you download the CSV version of the report, you can also see exactly when the user liked that post. This is a great way to see what types of content the user is interacting with, whether for personal or business reasons.
Accounts Whose Posts the User Has Liked
You don’t just want to see what posts your tracked user has liked; you want to see who published those posts too. Snoopreport has you covered.
In listing the posts that your tracked account has liked, Snoopreport compiles these posts by listing them in order of the most popular user. For example, let’s say your tracked account has liked ten posts from one user, five posts from another user, and two posts from another user. You’ll see all the ten posts they liked from that one user first, followed by the five posts they liked from the second account, and then the two posts they liked from the third user.
This is an easy way to see which users your tracked account is interacting with most. Content creators can use this to see which competitors are making the biggest impact on their target audience, and on a personal level, you can see exactly who’s grabbing the attention of the person you’re tracking.

Hashtags Featured Most in Liked Posts
Snoopreport doesn’t just show you the specific posts and accounts that your user is engaged with. It also digests that data and shows you top trends in their Instagram activity.
Snoopreport does this by showing you a breakdown of the top hashtags featured in the posts that your tracked account has liked. You can view it as a hashtag cloud or as a chart. Either way, this gives you a great view of the top trends that are catching the user’s attention.
Interests Based on Liked Posts
In a similar way to the hashtag data, Snoopreport can give you a view of your tracked user’s top interests over the past week based on the content they’ve liked. As with the hashtag data, you can view the user’s top interests as a word cloud or a chart.
This data is especially helpful for influencers, marketers, and content creators. You can cut right to the chase by seeing which topics appeal to this member of your target audience most. If you’re using Snoopreport for personal purposes instead, you can get to know the tracked user better by seeing what interests them and catches their eye.
Accounts the User Has Newly Followed
Following an account is a more notable action than liking a single post, so a follow gives you a lot of information about an Instagram user. While Instagram by default will show you a list of people that a user follows, it doesn’t tell you who they’ve followed recently. Snoopreport does, though.
In each weekly report, you’ll get a list of all the accounts the user has newly followed in the past week. When you download the CSV file for your report, you can also see when they followed each new account.

Instagram trackers range in price, but Snoopreport is particularly consumer-friendly. There are several tiers of pricing depending on how many accounts you want to track.
For starters, a personal account allows you to track up to two accounts at a time for $4.99 per month. The next step up, geared toward people who want to track multiple family members or small businesses wanting insights into just a few audience members or competitors, costs $14.99. This plan lets you track up to ten accounts at a time.
The next step up is the professional plan. You can track up to 100 accounts with this plan for $44.99 per month. It’s primarily geared toward influencers, marketers, and content creators who want group insights on their target audience so they can produce more strategic content.
Note that these are the prices at the time of this initial publication. Prices may change at any time, so be sure to check Snoopreport’s plan options for up-to-date pricing.

Setup and Use Process
To be frank, most Instagram trackers are an absolute pain to install and set up. You might need to sneak away with the phone of the person you want to track, figure out how to unlock their phone, and install a tracking app before they spot you. Even then, you have to worry about whether the person will find the tracking app and catch on.
Snoopreport, on the other hand, is incredibly quick and easy to set up. Just follow these simple steps:
- Create a free Snoopreport account with your email address. You don’t need to have an Instagram account to sign up for Snoopreport.
- Select and purchase the plan you want, depending on the number of accounts you want to track.
- Click to add a new account and input the Instagram handle of the account you want to track. Repeat this for each Instagram account you want to track.
- Sit back, relax, and get a report each week on your tracked user’s activity for that week.

Pros and Cons
Is Snoopreport the right choice for you and your Instagram tracking needs? It all depends on what you’re looking for. Let’s look at some of the top pros and cons to using Snoopreport.
Pro: Easy Use
Snoopreport is hands-down the easiest way to get Instagram activity data. There’s no digging through Instagram trying to hunt down and compile information. There’s no hacking into someone’s Instagram or swiping and unlocking their phone to install an app. There isn’t even a need to install a new app on your own phone.
Instead, it’s a simple website that’s easy for anyone to learn to use. Snoopreport also has a wide range of YouTube videos demonstrating the ins and outs of using their tool.
Con: Data Limitations
Everyone has different types of data they’re looking for from an Instagram tracker, and no tracker out there will have everything. As such, of course, there are certain types of data you might want that are not available from Snoopreport.
Snoopreport only collects data that is publicly visible but uncompiled by Instagram, such as likes and follows. It doesn’t give you access to the person’s private messages. Snoopreport also doesn’t gather data from private accounts.
Depending on what you’re looking for, these limitations could mean that Snoopreport isn’t the right fit. However, keep in mind that the only way to see private Instagram accounts or to get private messages is to get into the person’s actual Instagram account. Snoopreport gives you as much data as you can get through methods that aren’t ethically or legally questionable.
Pro: Versatile Use Cases
Because of the variety of data that Snoopreport offers as well as its range of available plans, Snoopreport is a particularly versatile tool that can answer questions for nearly any purpose.
Want to see if your significant other is worthy of your trust? Snoopreport will tell you whether they’ve been liking posts from people they should be avoiding. Want to make sure your kids are staying safe online? Snoopreport will tell you whether they’ve been interacting with posts that have content they shouldn’t be seeing.
From a business perspective, Snoopreport is also incredibly helpful. It allows you to get invaluable insights into the types of content and accounts that your target audience members are liking so you can incorporate this into your strategy. If you track your competitors, it even gives you a peek into their social media interactions so you can get ideas for your own techniques.
