We have seen before how to see your friend requests sent on Facebook, and you can do the same on Instagram. In this post you will learn the steps to follow to see the requests sent on Instagram from the cell phone and the PC.
If you send a follow request on Instagram and the account is private, the person must approve your request. Over time, you may accumulate many pending requests. So I guess you want to know who you sent a follow request to and have ignored you or see your pending requests on Instagram. Below I will show you how to do it in simple steps.
See requests sent on Instagram from your cell phone
To view pending follow requests sent on Instagram from the mobile app on Android, iPhone, etc., follow these steps:
# 1. Open the Instagram application and go to your profile by pressing your image or the icon at the bottom right.
# 2. Press the Tools menu , select Settings, and on the next screen choose Security.
# 3. Under the Data and history section , tap Access data.
# 4. Scroll down to the Connections section , and click the See all link under Current fan requests.
Here you can see the requests sent on Instagram to people who have their private profile and who have not yet been accepted.

If you want to cancel follow requests sent on Instagram, do this:

It is not difficult to see the requests submitted on Instagram. Although there is no option to cancel them, there is a way to delete them one by one. I show you in the next step.
