You probably have clicked on lots of links while using Instagram. Links usually appear in users’ bios, Instagram Stories, and direct messages. There is good news if you want to view the links you have visited on Instagram. You can see all the links you have clicked on Instagram.
The Instagram mobile app has a native browser that lets you visit links on its platform. That also explains why you cannot find your link history on your mobile’s local browser. History of all your visited links on the Instagram mobile app appears on the app.
We have covered in this article how you can see the links you have clicked on the Instagram app. We will also explain how to delete one or multiple links from your Instagram link history. Finally, we will see if it is possible to see your link history on the Instagram website.
See Your Visited Links on the Instagram App
Step1: Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android device.
Step2: Tap your profile picture in the bottom-right corner to visit your Instagram profile page.
Step3: On your profile page, tap the three-lined menu in the top-right corner.
Step4: Select Your Activity.
Step5: Tap Links you’ve visited.
The screen will now show you a list of all the links you have tapped on Instagram. The links will appear in chronological order.
They will appear alongside their titles, thumbnails, URLs, and the date you last visited them. You can revisit these links by tapping them.
How to Delete Your Link History
Deleing your link history on Instagram is easy. It is also useful because it helps you get rid of unwanted links from your link history and keep it organized.
To delete a link on Android devices, press and hold the link and select the Hide option. To delete a link on iOS, swipe left on it and select the Hide option.
If you want to delete all the links in your link history, select Hide History, then tap Hide. Doing this will clear your link history entirely.

Can You See Your Visited Links on Instagram Website?
Yes, you can see the links you have clicked on Instagram using the Instagram website. However, viewing visited links on the Instagram website is different from viewing visited links on the Instagram app.
Unlike the Instagram mobile app, when you tap a link on the Instagram website, it opens in your mobile or desktop’s local internet browser. So, you can view the links you have visited on the Instagram website in the history of the browser you used to access the Instagram website.
You have to manually search your browser history to find the links you have clicked on the Instagram website. You also need to manually differentiate between the links you have visited on the Instagram website and other types of links. It is because Your browser will label those two types of links differently.
