How to See Who Sent You Messages in NGL

NGL recently surged in popularity as many Instagram users are sharing it in their stories.

It allows you to send and receive anonymous messages.

The app claims that the sender will not be shown—but is it really anonymous?

Also, does the NGL subscription allow you to see who sent you the message?

In this article, you’ll learn how to see who sent you messages in NGL, is the subscription worth it, and whether NGL Link is anonymous.

How to see who sent you messages in NGL

To see who sent you messages in NGL, you need to pay for the subscription.

The subscription will give you a hint of who sent you the message which includes the location, time, device, and ID of the person.

1. View a message

NGL inbox

Firstly, open the NGL app and go to your inbox.

You’ll need to receive messages to view them.

If you don’t have any messages, you need to share your NGL link on your Instagram story first.

Once you’ve received some messages, tap on one of them to view it.

2. Tap on “Who sent this”

After you’ve subscribed and tapped on “Who sent this”, you’ll see a hint of who sent you the message.

This includes the location, time, device, and ID of the person who sent you the message.

It does not reveal the person’s Instagram username.

Unfortunately, the hint isn’t really helpful especially if you don’t know where your followers live.

Is the NGL subscription worth it?

No, the NGL subscription is not worth it because it does not reveal the person’s Instagram username.

I’ve purchased and tried the subscription for a while and it only gives you a hint of the sender.

This includes the location, time, device, and NGL ID.

Unless you know the exact location of your followers, paying for the hint is not recommended.

Is NGL Link Anonymous?

Yes, NGL Link is anonymous because it does not reveal the sender’s Instagram username.

The subscription only shows the person’s location, time, device, and NGL ID.

Most of the time, the hint is not helpful at all.

This is especially so if you don’t know where your followers live.
