There are many tools available on the internet that primed you to give the age of the Instagram account. However, I hereby admit that you no need extra tools like Instagram creation date checker or instream age and you can see this information for you and others (if they have more than lots of fan, for example 10K followers or they are identified as ORIGINAL by Instagram) easily from Instagram.

Though checking the age of the Instagram account is available for all users of business and personal account, but if you want o check others account information is also possible. Though, that person should have more than 10K followers on Instagram. Then, Instagram makes it available for all users to see its date joined.
