Keeping track of who’s not following you on Instagram can be too difficult a task.
Of course, you can manually control who unsubscribed you each day, but that requires knowing who all of your followers are and spending some time checking your account to see if they’re still there one by one.
If you don’t have a lot of subscribers, it may be possible, but if not, it will be much easier and more reliable to use a third-party app. We show you how to find out who unsubscribed you on Instagram.

How to use a third-party Instagram tracking app
Why do all the work manually when you can have an app do it for you? If you look in the iOS App Store or the Google Play Store if you are using Android, you will find a lot of different options that will not only let you know who has stopped following your Instagram account, but in many cases , you will make it have access to trend analysis and other interesting data.
Many of these more advanced features usually require a subscription to the Pro versions of the apps, but the unsubscribe functionality is often included for free.
Some of the top rated apps we’ve seen include:
One thing to note is that Instagram seems to regularly change the way third-party apps can access its API, which means features may stop working when Instagram is updated.
Most apps get fixed quickly, but keep in mind that every once in a while you may find that an app that worked perfectly before can suddenly lose the ability to know who has unsubscribed you.
To set up the app, go to the corresponding app store and download it to your device, then launch it and log into your Instagram account.
We have found that several apps crash when using your Facebook account to log in, so if you are having this issue, use your normal Instagram account details instead.
For this tutorial, we used Reports: Subscriber tracking, which breaks down into two distinct options: “Subscribers not tracked” and “Subscribers lost”.
The first shows people you follow and who don’t follow you, while the second only shows people who unsubscribed from your account since the last settings update. As simple as that.
So if you come back regularly, you can see who has lost interest in your account and has decided not to follow you anymore.
You will have to deal with some ads, some of which can be quite annoying, but if you really want to get into your account stats, there are paid versions that bring extra functionality and no ads.
But, for most users, the free tiers offer enough perks to offset the barrage of unbridled capitalism.
