A Finsta account is like a “fake Instagram” account. Most people these days have two Instagram accounts. One is the main account, your primary account with a good amount of followers. And the second with less followers, usually only friends.

The Urban Dictionary defines it as an account where people post what they are afraid to post on their main accounts. It has become an Instagram trend in recent times.

On the normal account we put up perfect pictures of perfect occasions. People put the perfect vacation pictures, cute selfies and aesthetic food images, and well edited pictures.

But on a finsta account, we keep it real. Share the fun and silly moments of our lives. They’re usually very secretive. Some people created to stay away from the radar of the family members. In this sense, you are more fake on your real account and real on your fake account.

Your primary Instagram account is usually open to coworkers and family whereas a this kind of an account is only available to a few select friends and family members. It’s not about getting followers of getting more likes it’s just about being yourself.

What is a Finsta account?

Finsta accounts were originally used by famous celebrities, sports personalities, influencers and well-known people.
Usually these people have tons of followers on their page.

They post filtered content, very overly polished sometimes promoted content. Their posts are scheduled. These personalities then create a finsta account to post intimate and private content and share it with their close circle.

But in recent times not only celebrities and famous personalities but everyone has started creating a finsta account. You can be candid and yourself on this account. Some people create such accounts because they want to and some create in order to fit in. They give into peer pressure, so that they are not left out.

What is the use of a Finsta account?

Finsta accounts are not a very new trend, it has been there since the year 2013. You cannot only see finsta accounts on Instagram but also on other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

These extra accounts can help you maintain privacy and have some fun online. Instagram is a platform to share pictures with your family and friends but it is also a platform for colleagues, strangers or potential employers to look into your life.

These accounts allow you to share personal photos that you might not want certain strangers and colleagues to see.

How to make and manage your Finsta account?

To create your own Finsta account, begin with creating a regular Instagram with the following steps:

Step 1

Download Instagram

Instagram is available on Android and Apply operating systems. You can simply open the app store, search for Instagram, and download it.

Step 2

Create a new profile

Now you can either create a basic profile with a basic picture and have fun with your regular Instagram account. OR you can add some funky bio and a funky profile picture and go wild with your Finsta Instagram account. 

Instagram will take through the next steps of:

  • Selecting your username

  • Connecting a mobile number/email ID with your account

  • Verification

Once the process is completed, your account is ready. Now time to make it “Finsta”.

Step 3

Set a name

To ensure that random followers can’t find your finsta account and for you to keep it private amongst close friends, you will want to pick a fake name for your finsta account. Remember that your main account or your brand name will not be related to your finsta account so you can go crazy with it.

Your username can also be an inside joke that you share with your friends or TV show or movie references. Once you create a finsta account don’t link it to your main account. If you link it, there is no point of a finsta account altogether then.

Keep your finsta account extremely private (that is the purpose), choose a different and unique name, choose your followers and keep it for your personal use.

Step 4

Add Finsta features

  • Begin with a funny and genuine bio

How do I find someone's Finsta account?

Take a look at the app on their phone. Click on their profile (icon in the lower right) and then look next to their username at the top. If you see an arrow next to it, click the arrow. If there are any other accounts in use, they will show up here

How does a Finsta work?

A finsta is a combination of the words Fake & Insta(gram). When people have a finsta they post pictures they only want their closest friends seeing instead of their regular instagram (rinsta) followers to see. Usually a girl has a finsta and boys arent supposed to follow it
