Just like Facebook, Instagram stores a history of all your liked posts that users can access within the Instagram app. However, not many users are aware of this nifty feature since it’s tucked somewhere in the settings.
The ability to see your liked posts on Instagram comes in handy if you want to look back at the photos and videos that you’ve liked. It’s also a quick way to unlike certain posts that you have liked in the past without the need to recall and manually search for a particular post.
Instagram mentions that one can only see the 300 most recent posts that they’ve liked. That said, you can’t see someone’s liked posts on Instagram due to privacy reasons.
Now let’s see how you can find posts you liked on Instagram 2021 for iPhone and Android.

How to view your liked posts on PC
Can I see my liked posts on Instagram on a computer?
Unfortunately, that’s not possible. While you can like posts using the Instagram app or website, there isn’t a way to see posts you’ve liked on Instagram on a PC or desktop. That’s because the web version of Instagram only offers basic functionality.
Worry not! There is a simple workaround that you can use to view your Instagram likes on a computer.
Windows and Mac users can simply install the “Layoutify: Improved Layout for Instagram” extension for Google Chrome. This extension messes the original layout of the Instagram website but lets you get the job done. You can install it solely to see your Liked Posts history directly on your laptop.
After installing the Layoutify extension, visit instagram.com and click the 3-horizontal dots at the top right.
You can now look at your liked posts in a grid view within the Chrome browser. Just click the “Load more” button at the bottom of the webpage to view more posts.
