How to Hide Who you Follow on Instagram [6 Easy Solutions]

How to Hide Who you Follow on Instagram

It takes a lot of time and effort to find someone successful in your industry, makes posts relevant to you, like you, and eventually follows you back. Some of us may have an assistant doing this for us, but it can be time-consuming for those who don’t have assistants. Read on from this for more information on how to hide who you follow on Instagram.

Instagram is a fantastic social media platform that has been increasing. The app’s clean interface and easy-to-use filters make it an enjoyable experience for users and advertisers. Following famous people on Instagram is hard.

1. Block Specific Users on Instagram

Blocking someone will prevent them from seeing your posts or even knowing that you exist. If they try to find out what you’re doing with the app or website, they’ll see an error message saying that the account does not exist.

The only way to unblock themselves is if they know the password to your account — which is probably something very few people do. To block a user, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the profile of the person you want to block by tapping on their profile icon.

Step 2: Tap More Options in the top right corner of their profile page.

Step 3: Select Block User at the bottom of the options menu.

2. Making Your Profile Private

The first is making your personal profile. This will prevent anyone from seeing your feed, but it also means that people won’t be able to see your photos or follow you. If this is what you want, then set your account to private. To do this:

Step 1: Go to your profile page and click “Edit Profile” in the top right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Scroll down and find “Following,” then click “Edit List.”

Step 3: Click “Hide,” then confirm by clicking “Yes.

Step 4: To unhide your followers, go back to your profile page and click “Edit Profile” again. Then scroll down and find “Following,” click “Unhide.

3. Remove Current Followers From Your Private Account

If you have a private account (i.e., your posts are only visible to people who follow you), then the person you follow won’t see your username when they look at their follower list. This is because private accounts don’t appear in public lists of users who have followed them.

To do this:

Step 1: At the top right corner of the app, tap your profile

4. Use an Instagram Monitoring Tool

An Instagram monitoring tool is third-party app that lets you see who follows and unfollows someone else on Instagram. You can use this information to find people interested in your work and then contact them directly (or at least know what they’re up to). These tools allow you to scan a user’s profile and see who they’re following, who follows them, and other information.

The best way to find an Instagram monitoring tool is to Google it along with the word “free” or “trial” (for example, “free Instagram monitor”). You should be able to find several options that don’t require any payment information from you. Try a few out until you find one that works well for you!

Instagram Monitoring Tool

A few of the best Instagram monitoring tools are:

Social Blade: This is my favorite social media monitoring tool because it integrates with your social media accounts and displays your follower stats in one place (instead of logging in to each platform individually). Plus, it allows you to track your progress over time and compare yourself with other users.

Followerwonk: This is another great option for tracking your progress. It also allows you to compare yourself with other users by showing how many people they follow compared to their number of followers (i.e., how engaged they are).

5. Hide Specific Accounts

If you’re not ready to make your entire account private but still want to keep some tabs hidden from public view, there’s another option: hiding specific accounts.

Step 1: Go to the Profile tab in Settings to do this on iPhone, then tap Following.

Step 2: On Android, open your profile and tap Following. Then select one account at a time from the list of followed accounts and click the Hide from the Following list at the bottom of the screen.


Q. What Does Restricting an Account Do?

Restricting an account means that you won’t see any content posted by that account, but they will still be able to see yours. Restricted accounts can send you direct messages or comments, but only if you follow them back. If you want to stop seeing their content altogether, you can choose to block them instead.

Q. Can I Hide My Instagram from my mobile device Contacts?

Yes, you can. Go to your profile and tap on the gear icon in the top right corner. Scroll down and tap on “Restrictions” under “Account settings.” You will be asked to enter your password to proceed. Then, you will see a list of all the people who have access to your account. To hide your account from someone, tap on their name or phone number and select “Hide this account.”

Bottom Line

Hiding who you follow is an easy and effective way to control the volume of information on Instagram. You can hide your unfollowers, users you don’t find attractive, old friends with nothing new to offer, or anyone else who doesn’t add to your feed. It might not seem like a huge feature now, but it makes the platform more dynamic for experienced users.
