How do you unhide a story on Instagram?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To unhide a story on Instagram, follow these steps:

1. Open Instagram on your phone: Launch the Instagram app by tapping on its icon on your phone’s home screen.

2. Scroll towards the end of stories: At the top of your Instagram feed, you will see a row of stories from accounts you follow. Scroll towards the end of these stories until you reach the last one.

3. Identify muted accounts: Once you reach the end of the stories, you will notice that some accounts appear greyed out without any colorful ring around them. These are the accounts that you have muted, and their stories are currently hidden from your feed.

4. Long-press the account: To unhide stories from a specific account, long-press on their profile picture. This action will bring up a small pop-up menu with a few options.

5. Click on “Unmute Story”: From the pop-up menu, select the option that says “Unmute Story.” By choosing this option, you are instructing Instagram to display the stories from this account in your feed again.

6. Enjoy the unhidden stories: Once you have unmuted the story, you will start seeing the stories from that particular account in your Instagram feed just like before. The account’s stories will now appear with a colorful ring around them, indicating that they are active.

By following these steps, you can easily unhide stories from any account you have previously muted on Instagram. This allows you to stay updated with the content and updates shared by the accounts you follow.
