While it's an epic way for us to creep on all the hot people without them knowing we be creepin', it also means that our crush could be watching our thirst traps without giving us the satisfaction of knowing we have them trapped.
You still with us?
So, here's how you do it.
1. Click and watch the Instagram Story of the person before or after your crush in the queue.
So, if we want to watch KJ Apa's story without him knowing? We'll use Kim Kardashian's story to get there.
Click onto Kim's story and then...
2. Hold your finger down to pause the story.
Once you've done that, what you need to do next is...
3. Slide your finger to peek at your intended story, without swiping across completely.
You can slide your finger to the left so we can see the preview of KJ's story.
If you do this (and make sure you don't slide over completely), then you can see their story without your name popping up on their 'seen' list!
As you can see in the above pic, KJ's story has the unseen mark around his photo still.
