    I can't think of single word synonyms, but here are some phrases that capture "insider": the in-crowd, people in the know, the inner circle, people on the inside....

    In some contexts, the opposite of an outsider is someone who is popular, but that's not exactly the same thing as an insider. A synonym for outsider can also be "stranger", so an antonym could be some modified form of "friend" or "acquaintance", but that still isn't quite the same as "Insider"

    The definition in merriam-webster is: : a person recognized or accepted as a member of a group, category, or organization: as a: a person who is in a position of power or has access to confidential information b: one (as an officer or director) who is in a position to have special knowledge of the affairs of or to influence the decisions of a company
