Instagram offers a great way to find out about other people and spy on them. However, it's easy to get caught out if you accidentally double press on a post while swiping or scrolling and suddenly you've given it a Like. Damn! Surely this has already happened to one or the other. In this post, we'll show you how to browse Instagram pictures without accidentally liking them.
