1. Airplane mode

This trick works on both android and iPhone. You just need to enable the Airplane mode. Just follow the guide below:

  1. Open the Facebook app on your smartphone and refresh the page by pulling the screen from top to bottom.
  2.  Now activate airplane mode on your mobile. In general, on Android, the option is in the Quick Settings menu, accessible by dragging the phone’s screen from top to bottom. On iPhone, the feature is in Control Center.
  3. With airplane mode activated, go back to the Facebook app and tap on the stories. The app will only display those that appear highlighted. If the person has made more than one post, you will only be able to see the most recent one.
  4. When you’re done watching, close the Facebook app before turning off airplane mode. Thus, it guarantees that it will not even be discovered.

2. Drag to the side. But not much!

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

  • When you find the post you want to see, tap on the one that comes right before it. Then, drag your finger from right to left, as if going to the story you want to view. The trick here is to not scroll to the end and keep your finger holding the screen.
  • When you’re done watching, without releasing the screen, drag the story again from left to right. Thus, it is possible to snoop through almost the entire image and not be discovered.

3. Deactivate your Facebook account

This trick is recommended for anyone who has already viewed someone’s story and still doesn’t want to be discovered. Although a little extreme, it is the last measure for those who accessed the stories unintentionally and are desperate for anonymity.

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

4. Block the Person

This should be the last option which is to Block the Person whose story you have viewed. Tough this will also remove the person from your friend list.
