Do you see IG history all the time? Here we have explained how to fix duplicate stories on Instagram.
Instagram stories allow you to share great moments with your followers. When a user posts a story, people who follow them will be able to view the stories. In some cases, the public can see the story with the appropriate settings.
When a story is posted, it stays on Instagram for 24 hours, after which it is deleted. This way you will be able to see the history while it is still within the time frame.
To see the IG story, just click on the user’s Instagram profile picture. Available stories are usually listed next to the “Your Story” icon on the Instagram home page on the mobile app. Although it is only visible to authorized users.
However, some users re-view stories on Instagram. As a result, people see old stories again that may have been caused by the glitch.
How the story works, you can only view it when you click on the user’s profile picture. As new stories come in, you’ll be able to see them in the Recent Stories list.
In addition, after viewing, they are sent to the list of viewed stories. If a user has posted many stories, it will take some time to see all of their stories. It also explains how we use stories on tiktok and whatsapp status.
Below, we’ve explained why Instagram stories keep showing up and how you can fix it.
Why are all my Instagram stories repeating?
Instagram Stories are repeating due to a bug. The bug only affects the Instagram mobile app and has happened many times.
We recently encountered a bug that was causing stories to be viewed multiple times. As a result, when a story is posted, you can continue to see it even after new ones are posted.
The problems have been noticed by many Instagram users. Some of them tweeted about it. Some of the tweets have been cited below.

However, a spokesperson for Meta said that Instagram had been made aware of the issue and had resolved it.
