How to View Facebook Stories Anonymously
Here’re 3 ways to view Facebook Stories anonymously.
Way 1. Turn on Airphone Mode
When your phone is in airphone mode, it won’t be connected to the Internet. Thus, Facebook will be unable to register that you’ve visited other people’s stories.
After you open the Facebook app, scroll through all the stories to load them. Then turn on airplane mode, tap the story and watch it.
You should close the Facebook app before you turn off airplane mode.

Way 2. Half Swiping
The second way to view Facebook Stories anonymously is to stop watching the story halfway through. It means that you can’t view the whole story.
While you’re viewing a story, you can half-swipe right or left to another story without letting go. At this moment, you’re still in the previous story. This method works best for the image in the story. If it’s a video, you can only see the thumbnail.

Way 3. Deactivate Your Facebook Account
If you want your username to appear in the people’s viewer list, you can deactivate your Facebook account temporarily. Then your account will be disabled and your name and photos will be removed from most things you’ve shared.
Just open a story in the Facebook app, click the three dots, select Settings and Privacy, and tap the Privacy Shortcuts. Tap Delete your account and information, and check the box of Deactivate Account.
After the story disappears after 24 hours, log in and reactivate your Facebook account.
