The app went viral and grew into a trend where every year millions of Instagram users, influencers, and celebrities share their Best Nine Instagram moments of the year using the Top Nine app.

Who built Top Nine?

The Top Nine trend was created by a team of engineers, marketers, and designers building awesome tools and apps for social media. You can learn more about who is behind Top Nine on our About Us page.

Are my Top Nine Instagram posts the same as my most liked Instagram photos?

Your Top Nine Instagram posts selected by the Top Nine app are not only the most-liked Instagram photos. We believe that your Top Nine Instagram posts should represent your best 9 moments of 2023, and those are not just selected based on the number of likes they have. There's a very complex algorithm in place to select these. In fact, that’s what makes Top Nine unique :)

How does the Top Nine algorithm work?

The algorithm selects your Top Nine Instagram posts based on a number of factors: number of likes, comments, among others. You can read more about how the Top Nine algorithm works following this link.

Is Top Nine secure?

Top Nine is developed and maintained by a team with years of experience building tools and apps used by millions of users. Your data and Instagram account are safe, and we never gain access to your Instagram password because the authentication process happens on itself.

IMPORTANT: After receiving many complaints of users who thought they were using our app, we issued a warning against alternatives.

Do I have to login to Instagram?

In certain cases, like when your account is private, we may ask you to sign in to Instagram to provide us with read-only access to see your Instagram posts. This sign up process happens on, meaning we don't have access to perform any other action than "reading" your Instagram posts. We don't have access to any settings, messages, or any other part of your Instagram account.

Why do I have to enter my email address?

User privacy is super important to us. We never use your email address other than to make sure you get the best out of Top Nine. Top Nine is used by millions during December, which can cause some service delays. This means you may have to wait a few seconds for your Top Nine to be generated. However, entering your email enables us to deliver it to your inbox as soon as it’s ready, so you don’t have to wait on the app. Receiving this notification is just one use case, but most importantly, your email is our way to provide support to your account, in case you run into any issues. We made it very easy to remove your emails from our servers, so you never hear from us again. Just go to

Top Nine 2023 and Best Nine, is it the same?

Apps named "Best Nine for Instagram" are not provided by us. Many clones that claim to be Top Nine or similar services are currently available on the App Store. We receive messages from people explaining that they used our app when they've actually used an app called Best Nine or a Top Nine clone.

We understand this confusion as Top and Best are used as synonyms in many articles, but the name of our app is "Top Nine", and it's only available on,, and our official mobile apps linked from our official websites. If you use a different Top Nine app, the selection of the 9 photos will be different, and more importantly, we can only ensure the security of your account if you use our app.

What makes Top Nine different from other clones?

Top Nine is the original app that started the Top Nine Instagram trend, and the one trusted by millions of Instagram users, influencers, and celebrities. That’s the reason why every year it gets to the #1 spot of the App Store in most countries, including United States . Also, the Top Nine algorithm, together with our commitment to data privacy and security , is what makes us be trusted by each of those millions of users. This enables us to continue building more creative ways to re-live and share those best moments of your year in new formats, building new tools for creators year after year.

Instagram Recap 2023 or Top Nine?

Instagram usually releases Reels templates for #Recap2023, where users can add their photos and videos. However, Instagram is not choosing the Top Nine Instagram reels and posts of the year. Most people go to to find their Top Nine posts and reels.

That's why most of the 2023 recap reels have nine photos or videos, and everyone posting with the #2023Recap hashtag is also posting with #TopNine.

As creators of the trend, we love seeing the Top Nine trend is still alive!

Is Top Nine Instagram wrapped?

As Spotify wrapped becomes viral every beginning of December, many users search for Instagram wrapped.

In fact, Spotify wrapped was launched many years after we started the Top Nine trend. While we don’t claim they copied us, we do believe that Spotify was inspired by us :)

We are not affiliated with any app called wrapped. We published a blogpost about Instagram wrapped.

Does Top Nine work even if I remove the likes count?

Instagram has an advanced feature where users can choose to hide the like count on specific posts. Unfortunately, you need to enable like counts on all of your posts for Top Nine to work properly.

If you decide to change your settings on your posts, please wait up to 1 hour for Top Nine to refresh your Top Nine.
