Sometimes we don’t want to share our stories & posts with certain people, and we don’t want them to know about it. If you are in the same situation then this guide is what you need.

๐Ÿ•š In a hurry?

There are several ways to hide your story from certain people, this includes only sharing with close friends or using Instagram “Hide From Certain People” tool.

There is no way to hide your posts from a certain group of people and the only way around is to make your account private and remove them as a follower.

These tools help you personalize your experience and let you share more with only those who matter the most to you.

It is similar to how Instagram allows you to mute posts and stories uploaded by specific people or accounts without unfollowing them.
