Here’s How To Hide Instagram Posts From Your Grid

Without actually deleting them

For years we’ve been asking Instagram for an update on some of their features, while they haven’t sorted out all of them (when will they give us a search bar on stories?!), they have changed one thing, and it’s a pretty handy update to know.

It is of course hiding Instagram posts from your grid. So, instead of uploading and deleting the same picture multiple times until you get the filter spot on, you can just archive the snap, temporarily hiding it from your followers.

We all have those pictures that we love but just don’t want on our feeds anymore, so we’ve v relieved to have the option to keep them there, but just out of people’s view. You never know when we might get accepted to go on Love Island and we need to rid our feeds of any incriminating content (namely that snap of our dodgy-looking eyebrows from 2018).

So, if you want to learn how to hide posts, here’s a step to step guide.

First things first (I’m the realest) you’ll need to choose which picture you want to hide. I chose a recent one on my grid because I just couldn’t bare scaring your eyes with one of my first posts from back in the day. Clicking on the three dots in the top right-hand corner, select the archive option.

The picture will now be hidden from your grid. To view it in your archives, click the three lines in the top right-hand corner of your profile. From there you can view all your archives. When you click into archives make sure you select the post archives option and not the stories archives one.

If you decide you want your snap to appear on your timeline again click on the ‘show on profile’ option. It’ll reappear in exactly the same place with exactly the same likes and comments on it as before.

Super easy, super effective, go ahead and let your friends know the good news!

We love you Instagram!
