There are times when you see an ad on Instagram Stories that you skip through, but you can’t remember the company or product’s name later. Thankfully, Instagram keeps a history of all the ads you have clicked from Stories and your feed.
You can see all recently viewed ads on Instagram right in the mobile app. The steps are slightly different based on your platform of choice (iPhone or Android). We will cover both options below.
