Instagram is a very popular photo and video-sharing social networking service founded on October 6, 2010, by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. Currently, Instagram is owned by Facebook and recently Instagram added a new feature named Instagram anonymous questions.
This feature allows Instagram users to attach a Questions sticker to Instagram Stories. When this feature was launched, many users thought that they can ask anonymously and their answers would be anonymous too. But in Instagram, there is no such new feature. So, when you answer “Instagram anonymous questions” the person who posts the question will be able to see your username.
