Vishant Programmer (@vishantprogrammer) is an Instagram account that has gone viral form yesterday. Thousands of Instagram users are being fooled by many of their friends. This post explains everything you need to know about Vishant Programmer.
VISHAN PROGRAMMER IS A PRANK! YOUR PROFILE PHOTO IS NOT PUBLIC
Yes, it’s a prank. Here’s how :
I received a text from my friend an hour ago and it said
“Bhai tune kis bande se panaga le liya fir se? Ye dekh iski profile pe story highlight me isne teri photo daal rakhi hai.. aur gaaliyan bhi hai“
He sent me a link to @vishantprogrammer ‘s Instagram profile.
I immediately went through the link and this is what I saw in his story highlights :
As you’d expect I was out of my mind. SHOCKED!!!!??
I had no idea about who was vishant programmer. The scariest part was to see his account had around 230000 followers!
I asked to my friend who told me about this shit! As you would expect he continued his prank and said
“dekh tune kis kis ke saath dushmani ki hai! Aisahi koi banda hoga shaayad se“
VISHANT PROGRAMMER INSTAGRAM IS A PRANK!
I jumped straight into Vishant Programmers inbox on Instagram and thanked him in the carryminati way!
CONCLUSION : DON’T WORRY!?
After I calmed myself down and observed his profile here is what I found :
- Every Instagram account holder see his own profile picture in the story highlight! Your photo in @vishantprogrammer s story is visible only to you!
- Other 2,30,000 other followers cannot see your face in those abusive stories.
- It’s a prank to scare people and gain some followers! If the page lasts it will soon have too many followers.
- Vishant Programmer trick is nothing but an ” Instagram comment sticker”.
- It might also be because of some bug in Instagram. The story has manipulated code.
- If too many people report the account of Vishant Programmer it might be blocked or marked for a review.
So don’t worry! Stay calm. Nobody’s using Instagram as a weapon for revange.!!?
It’s just a Comments Sticker for Instagram Stories. Only enabled for certain people in certain regions. I tried connecting to VPN in Indonesia to try it out but didn’t work. Lots of Indian YouTube videos explaining how they did it but I can’t recreate their results.Said a user named yoyoman0909 on a popular reddit
If you still don’t believe me here’s what you can do:
1. Change your Instagram profile photo and see @vishantprogrammer’s story highlights again.
2. See his story from another instagaram account.
