Airplane mode

Then, once again, push the Facebook app screen upward until it no longer appears.

Drag to the side. But not much!

Another way to see stories without being discovered is to move on to the next post without letting go of the screen. The tip works only for photos and only allows you to view only the most recent post.

When you find the post you want to see, tap the one that comes right before it. Then drag your finger from right to left, as if to move to the story you want to view. The trick here is to skip the image all the way and keep your finger holding the screen.

When finished viewing, without releasing the screen, drag the story from left to right again. Thus, it is possible to snoop through almost the entire image and not be discovered.

Deactivate your Facebook account

This tip is recommended for anyone who ALREADY viewed someone’s story and yet he doesn’t want to be discovered. Although a little extreme, it is the last measure for those who accidentally accessed the stories and are desperate for anonymity.

When deactivating your account for 24 hours, your profile picture will not be displayed to the post author. On the other hand, this means spending a whole day without accessing the social network.

If you decide it’s still worth it, try turning it off immediately after viewing the post. After all, in the interval between viewing and acting, the post creator can check who has seen the post and find his name there. The option is available at settings from Facebook, in the section Account Ownership and Control.

Deactivation is different from exclusion and allows the user to take a break from the social network. That way, when you want to come back, you can retrieve your account and all the information related to it.
