VIDEO GUIDE: Search Your Instagram Captions, Comments, Tags and #Hashtags

This article was originally written in 2014, since then technology has moved on and so have we. You can now access your personal social media content through Within you can see, search and share your personal data on your terms. Take a look at the video series below to see more about how we do that. 

One of the cool things you can do when you download your Instagram photos to SocialSafe (Note that SocialSafe is no longer available in this format please try out instead.) is to search through them by keyword or hashtag. When viewing your Instagrams within SocialSafe you can click on the Search box on the left hand side of the top bar and enter the word, name or phrase you’d like to find.

Search Your Instagram Captions, Tags and #Hashtags.

Any photos containing your chosen search term will be displayed. Hovering over an image will show you how many comments, tags and/or likes it has, and clicking on the image will open it up in a larger view, where you will be able to see the caption, any comments, who has liked your photo and any tags associated with it.

You can also change the date range [not demonstrated in this video] to only show you images from any of the preset time periods (eg Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, Last Year etc), or set your own custom date range.

For more tutorial videos, including how to print your Instagrams as PDFs, please refer to the SocialSafe YouTube Channel where the other aspects and functionality of the SocialSafe application are covered in greater detail.


  1. With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. Love the news & insights! I believe that we can both learn from each other & would love to know what you thought of my marketing blog! 😀
