There is no way to see the full photo added as a profile picture on Instagram. Developers of this social network didn't adjust the feature to expand the profile image. So then what to do if you need the original photo, but you can't find it anywhere. The ability to download it through the browser code doesn't work at the time of writing this article. And if you are looking for an app to save and view the original profile photos on Instagram, then as a rule they are not durable, stuffed with a bulk of ads, or take up phone memory. Therefore, there is only one solution to solve this problem — use a third-party service.
