How do I change my search suggestions on Instagram?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To change your search suggestions on Instagram, follow these steps:

1. Open the Instagram app on your Android device.
2. Look for the magnifying glass icon at the bottom of the screen and tap on it. This will take you to the Explore page.
3. Once you’re on the Explore page, you’ll see a search bar at the top of the screen. Tap on it to open the search tab.
4. In the search tab, you’ll see a list of search suggestions based on your previous searches and Instagram activity.
5. To remove a search suggestion, simply tap on the “X” next to the username or search term you want to remove.
6. Continue removing search suggestions one by one until you have cleared the ones you no longer want to see.
7. Instagram will automatically update your search suggestions based on your current activity and the accounts you interact with.

It’s important to note that removing search suggestions does not mean you won’t see content related to those suggestions in your Explore feed. Instagram’s algorithm takes into account various factors when showing content on the Explore page, including your interests, interactions, and trending topics.

If you want to further customize your Explore feed, you can explore content related to specific interests. To do this, simply tap on the search bar at the top of the Explore page and enter a keyword or topic of interest. Instagram will show you relevant accounts and posts related to that topic, allowing you to discover new content.

Remember, the search suggestions on Instagram are there to help you find accounts and content you might be interested in based on your previous activity. By removing suggestions or exploring specific interests, you can tailor your Instagram experience to your liking.

Changing your search suggestions on Instagram is a simple process that can be done manually by removing suggestions one by one. Keep in mind that Instagram’s algorithm will continue to adapt and show you content based on your activity and interests.
