Can you hide yourself from someone on Instagram?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

I can help you with that! So, if you’re looking to hide yourself from someone on Instagram, you have the option to make your account private. Making your account private means that only your approved followers will be able to see your posts, stories, and other activities on Instagram.

To make your account private on the Instagram app for Android or iPhone, you can follow these steps:

1. Tap on your profile picture in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to your profile page.

2. Once you’re on your profile page, look for the gear icon or three dots in the top right corner. Tap on it to access your account settings.

3. In the settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Privacy.”

4. Within the Privacy settings, you’ll find an option that says “Private Account.” It might already be enabled, but if not, you can tap on it to make your account private.

By enabling the Private Account option, your Instagram account will become private, and only the people you approve as followers will be able to see your posts, stories, and activities on Instagram. Any new follower requests will need your approval before they can see your content.

It’s important to note that if you had previously allowed someone to follow you, and you decide to make your account private, they will still be able to see your past posts and activities. However, they won’t be able to see any new posts or stories unless you approve them as a follower.

So, by making your account private, you have control over who can see your content on Instagram, allowing you to hide yourself from specific individuals if you wish.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
