Public or confidential? Well, that depends upon everything you use your IG for, and everything you wish to achieve from it.
In the event that you are trying to hide your social life from your own employers, families or exes, then it will be best for you to have all your social accounts hidden from public view, including IG.
However, if privacy isn't a concern, and you don't mind sharing the content you publish with the general public at large, then there is no real importance of any additional privacy or taking steps to “lock down” your account from others.
Make your profile public if:
You're a brand or business trying to find more engagement along with your target audience.
You're a public figure, social influencer, or aspiring talent trying to find more public exposure and better engagement with fans.
You don't mind sharing your personal life (including locations) with the world.
Make your profile confidential if:
You're a low-profile individual who doesn't want strangers to see your contents (on hashtags) or locations.
You're not in the spotlight.
You don't care about getting more followers.
Best Use for Each Type of Profile
Public IG account — best for both commercial and non-commercial use such as for example gaining more social exposure, brand awareness and followings
Private Instagram account — best for both personal and non-commercial use like maintaining your contents just to yourself and selected groups of friends.
How To Make Your IG Profile Private
Set your Instagram profile to private with these quick and easy steps!
Open your Instagram app.
Go to the profile icon that will be in the bottom right corner of your screen.
Tap on the 3-horizontal-line icon towards the top right corner of your Instagram profile.
Tap on kit (settings) icon in the bottom right corner of your screen.

Rendering it so that your IG account is hidden from public view is definitely easier than attempting to view private accounts of others.
How To View Private IG Profiles
Okay, let's dig in.
Suppose you're trying to get to understand someone that you barely know, but then you recognize that the individual has an IG account. You'll likely want to get in touch with the individual through the social platform, but then recognize that the person's account isn't readily available for public viewing.
So exactly what do you do?
