The process of checking out the messages on the web.

Unluckily, in the web version of Instagram, there is no direct feature of messaging. Instagram doesn’t even provide direct access to a message on the web. It has specific third-party platforms that run the management — platforms such as Iconosquare. None of the third party platforms is legitimate. Users may finish compromising the Instagram account.

Insta Application on Windows

The only exception may be the official Insta app, that is for the windows. Even if you own a Windows PC, then this app can be downloaded. You can enjoy receiving and sending direct messages via it. You can also submit posts, videos, and photos, that too directly from the feed.

Finding hidden messages.

Instagram has allowed people to send direct messages. You may not be knowing about it. Just like Facebook auto filters unwanted messages, Insta also does the same, it hides specific messages from the inbox. Don’t worry; you can find those messages easily.
