If you’ve ever been asked by a friend to post a fake photo on Instagram, you’ve probably heard the term ‘authentic’.
But the term is often misunderstood.
For instance, a fake profile on Instagram could be one that looks very much like yours, but is actually created by someone else.
The best way to make this fake profile look authentic is to mask the actual name.
Fake profile makers usually mask their real name, like @realname, @user_name, and so on.
To do this, simply add @real name, @username, and @user name to the end of the Instagram profile.
This will hide the actual photo, but the name will remain.
Fake profiles usually look pretty good for a few minutes before disappearing.
But fake profiles often get hacked.
In fact, fake accounts often get hijacked in real life, and people fake their real names to get more followers and more likes.
So how do fake Instagram profiles get hijacked?
There are two main ways to make your fake profile seem real: masking and hijacking.
Masking This is a trick that Instagram has used for years, but it’s especially effective with Instagram accounts that have hundreds or thousands of followers.
If you’re using Instagram as a platform for creating fake profiles, you can mask the real name of your account.
In this scenario, you’ll only be able to see the profile pictures, not the real user name.
But, if your account has tens of thousands of users, the account can still look authentic.
This method is very effective because it requires you to create your fake Instagram account on a new device.
If your Instagram account is fake, you could easily end up with thousands of Instagram accounts.
To mask your account’s real name on Instagram: Go to Instagram and sign in.
Tap the “Accounts” button.
Scroll down and tap “Account Name.”
Tap “Mask profile.”
If you do not have a fake account yet, you will see the “Create Account” button at the bottom of the page.
Now, your account will look like it’s registered on Instagram.
Now that you have your fake account, you just need to go back to Instagram.
You can mask your real name at any time.
To make the account look real: Go back to your account and tap the “Mask” button in the upper-right corner of your screen.
Tap “New Account.”
This will take you to your profile page.
You will now see a new page called “Account Masking” where you can create a new fake Instagram page.
When you create a fake page, you must first choose the “real name” of the account, which you can change at any point.
To change the name of the fake account: Go over to the page you created earlier, tap “Mask,” and then tap the blue “Mask name” button on the top of the screen.
This should now make the page appear fake.
To continue using the fake Instagram pages: If you want to continue using a fake Facebook account, tap the Facebook icon in the top-right of your Instagram page to go to the Facebook page you’re on.
Tap a new account and then go back into the profile page, which will show a new profile picture and your name.
To start using the real Instagram page: Go under your Instagram profile and tap a new photo from the main menu.
Under the “accounts” section, tap your fake Facebook profile.
Go to Account Masking.
To set your fake name, go to Account Settings.
To delete your fake page and all of its photos, tap Delete all.
