Do you want to share a post on Instagram but at the same time avoid certain people from seeing it?
You might be wondering if this is even possible.
Hiding an Instagram story is easy but keeping a post away from someone’s sight looks like something impossible.
Let’s dive to see if you can hide Instagram posts from someone.
Can You Hide Instagram Posts From Someone?
Unfortunately, you can’t hide your posts from someone on Instagram. Instagram has no default option to restrict someone from seeing your post.
However, you can change some of your privacy settings to limit who can see your posts. Although this may not 100% guarantee to hide your post from certain people, it may work to some extent.
Let’s have a look at how you can alter your privacy settings and perform certain actions to avoid someone from seeing your posts.
How to Hide Instagram Posts From Someone?
Some of the techniques that you can follow are:
Remove Them From Your Followers List
Every post you share on Instagram will be shown to your followers on their feed. So, if you remove them from your Followers List, they won’t be able to see it on their feed unless they directly visit your profile and see it.
This way you can hide your post from them. Let’s see how you can remove someone from your ‘followers list’.
- Go to your profile and tap the Followers tab.
- Search for the user you want to remove.
- Tap Remove to the right of their profile
Here’s a detailed guide on how to remove followers on Instagram with screenshots.
Make Your Account Private
If you want to restrict your non-followers from seeing your posts, you can switch your account to private. However, the catch is this method won’t work if you want to hide posts from your followers.
You first need to remove them from your ‘Followers List’ and make your profile private.
Here’s how to make your profile private.
- Go to your profile and tap the three horizontal bars in the top right corner of the screen.
- Select Settings.
- Tap Privacy.
- Press the toggle icon next to Private Account.
