How to download Instagram story without using any app
If you don’t want to install any app, either on your smartphone, or your Chrome browser, here is an easier solution for you. There are several websites that offer the option to download stories of a particular user.
I tested a bunch of them for this article, the website called WeInstag worked most of the time.
So you can open this website either on your PC or your mobile browser, and then type in the username of the Instagram user to download their Instagram story. Keep scrolling down to find all the stories posted by the particular Instagram user.
Note: The website is a bit of ad intrusive, so I would suggest you request the desktop version of the website when you are browsing it from your mobile phone, this will reduce the number of popups if you get any.
This is how you can download Instagram stories on any of your devices with or without an app, however, if you download stories more frequently, I would suggest you install the app for your particular device, which will make the process a lot faster.
