Social Switch v0.4

Browser extension that redirects Instagram URLs to anonymous viewers

Edited May 12, 2024

Social Switch v1.0: Finally, Firefox

Formerly called Picuki Switch, Social Switch automatically redirects to or when you access any Instagram profile, posts, tagged posts, stories profile, or tags.

Install it from the Chrome Web Store.

Select a viewer option and enable or disable redirection through the popup. Note that some URLs may be redirected using a specific viewer, regardless of the selected option.

For the upcoming releases, it is planned to include UrleBird, a TikTok web viewer.

Supported URLs<handle><handle>/tagged<handle> (only Imginn)<short_code> (only Imginn)<handle>/p/<short_code> (only Imginn)<short_code> (only Imginn)<handle>/reel/<short_code> (only Imginn)<tag_name> (only Picuki)

Unsupported URLs<long_code>?story_media_id=<story_media_id> (story URL)<short_code>/?igshid=<igsh_id> (IGTV URL)

In this file, you will find all the URLs for testing.
