Android Apps to Fake Instagram Direct Message
1. Fake Chat
The first app in the list is Fake Chat. The way it works is simple. You tap on the ‘+’ icon to create the first profile where you will add your username and profile picture. This can be anything depending on who you are trying to prank. Once done, save the profile.
Now the repeat this process to create as many fake profiles as you want and there is no limit whatsoever. Now just tap on the profile name to open the chat window and begin chatting. You can send text messages, images, and even hearts if that’s what you want to send.
When you are typing a message, you will notice a green icon. If you press on it once, it will turn white. This is to change the status of the message and whether the message was sent or received. You can also tap once on the message to change its status anytime you want.
What about time? You can’t wait for the morning to begin the fake chat. Don’t worry, When you tap on the time entry on screen, a new popup will reveal itself allowing you to change date and time both.
Fake Chat is a simple to use app that will let you generate a fake Instagram direct message in no time. It is completely free to use but comes with annoying popup ads that can be removed with an in-app purchase.

Funsta take things to the next level literally and offers so many ways to fake conversations on Instagram, you would be left wondering how you ever lived without this app. Where Fake Chat only allows you to fake Instagram direct messages, Funsta will also allow you to add and create Instagram Stories, create posts and even comment on those posts. This opens up a whole lot of possibilities for pranking your friends and people you know.
You will begin by creating a fake contact or a group of contacts. You can now add a profile pic and bio to that contact. To create a new post, select the ‘+’ icon and add a caption, and the number of Views and Liked count. This makes it look more authentic and real, no?
What I really like about Funsta is the attention to detail developers have paid. At the time of creating a contact, there is an option to mark the profile as Verified. This adds another level of authenticity to the profile you are faking a direct message with. Especially, if it is a celeb or well-known profile you are faking.
Once everything is set up, you can simply select a profile and begin faking a two-way conversation. A pretty neat way to create hilarious jokes. The free version of the app is ad-supported but all the features are available so there is no need for the pro version unless you want to remove ads. The pro version will remove ads and unlock smart auto-reply feature.

3. Social Prank
Ever wished that your post was liked by and commented upon by a celebrity? Well, Social Prank will make that dream come true. Create your profile and then create profiles of people or celebs with whom you want to fake a conversation with.
You can now create fake posts, comments, and likes using different profiles that you have created. This makes it easier to fake that a direct message conversation started between the two of you after the latter liked or commented upon a post made by you. More organic.
Social Prank makes things a little easier. You can add comments, likes, and counts right at the time of creating a new Instagram profile. In Funsta, you would have to create profiles first and then use it to like and comment on other profiles which is time-consuming and boring. Finally, you can send direct messages that look very much like the ones sent on Instagram. Just select the profile and tap on the airplane shaped icon on the top-right of the screen.

Yazzy is a social media Swiss Knife of sorts. Not only can you create real looking fake profiles and direct messages for Instagram but also a number of other social media sites like Facebook’s Messenger, Telegram, and others. You begin by tapping on the Instagram option from the list of social media sites to open a default layout.
At first, it will look like an image or a screenshot however when you look closer, the whole layout can be easily edited by just tapping on it. You can edit various elements of the page like name, image, and even mobile elements like status bar and nav bar. This gives you more control because not smartphones are created equal and some show status and nav bar and while others do not.

insJoke takes inspiration from the Social Prank app that I reviewed above. In fact, at first look, it looked almost like a clone to me but there are some subtle differences. You begin the same way. First create a couple of profiles inside which you can add comments, likes, and counts (Like and Comments) but unlike other apps, you can also add Location.
Instagram allows users to share their location which makes the fake DMs and profiles all the more real. The rest remains the same. You go on creating profiles and mimic direct message chats with them. You can then take screenshots and share them with your friends fooling them into believing that they were from real people.

Fake Instagram Direct Message
These are some of the best Android apps to fake Instagram direct messages. While there are quite a few options available, I would recommend you to go with either Funsta or FakeChat. Why? Because I feel that they offer pretty much all the necessary features to get the job done and look authentic when compared with the original layout of Instagram. This is not to say that other apps are not good enough. I also like Social Prank for its default profile data and the ability to add multiple comments right at the time of creating a profile.
