1. Click and watch the Instagram Story of the person before or after the story you want to secretly view 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.
Oh, but as a small aside, we should also add that you need to be following the person to do this in the first place - otherwise it won't come up in your stories list.
