How To Hide Your Feed From Specific People on Instagram
There are two ways to hide your feed from specific people on Instagram and thankfully, both methods are very easy.
How To Hide Your Instagram Feed From People
The first way to hide your feed from certain people is to simply block those you don’t want to be able to see your feed.
How to block someone:
1.Visit the Instagram account to the person you wish to block.
2. Tap the ” ” symbol you see when you are on iPhone/iPad) and on the “” symbol if you’re using Android.
3.Tap “Block User“
4. ALL DONE!
Good to know:
People are not notified when you block them. Once you have blocked someone, they will, however, be able to see that they are blocked by you if they are able to find your account (if people have tagged your account for example). They won’t be able to search and find your account in the search bar.
The second method is to make your Instagram account private. This means that your feed will only be visible to your followers and to follow you, they need to make a request and then you’ll decide whether or not they should get to follow you or not.
How to set your account to private
1. Open up Instagram
Since we will be making the Instagram profile private through the app, you should begin by opening the app. If you don´t have the app yet, you can download it by searching “Instagram” on the App Store or on the Android store. If you are completely new to Instagram, you can read how to create an Instagram page to begin with.
2. Go to Your Profile
Once you have launched the app, go to your profile by pressing the button in the far right corner of the screen.
3. Edit Your Profile Settings
Once you have opened your personal Instagram profile, you should click on the settings button, which you will find at the top-right part of your screen
4. Activate the Privacy Option
Find the headline that says “Private account”. If your profile is public, then it will appear in gray, meaning that any user can access your pictures. To make your profile private, make the gray button blue by sliding the button to the right and then click on the top-right part of your screen to confirm you want to make your Instagram account private.
Have in mind:
If the person you wish to hide your feed from is already following you, it won’t help setting your account to private because they will be following you and therefore be able to see your feed. First, you have to make them stop following you. Here’s an article on a way to get people to stop following you that now many people know about.
