How to Hide Instagram Stories from Someone on iPhone

So, you want to hide your Instagram stories from someone on your iPhone without having to unfollow him/her. Read on to find how it works:

To ensure your stories have needed privacy, Instagram allows you to not just set your account private but also hide your Instagram stories from someone using your iPhone. The best thing about this feature is that it allows you to keep your posts concealed from certain friends without having to unfollow them.

One thing worth noting is that hiding your story from someone is different than blocking them. For instance, the person whom you have stopped from viewing your stories will continue to see your profile and posts; unlike the blocked ones.

That’s all folks!

While looking at who’s seen your story, you can select people to hide your story from. Simply, tap on the “X” to the right of their name and select Hide Story From [Username].

If your story shows up on a hashtag page or location, you can see it at the top of the list of people who have seen your story.

Simply tap on the x to the right of a location or hashtag page to hide your story from it. Your account’s privacy setting allows you to decide who can see your story. If you have set your account private, only your approved followers will be able to see your story.

If your account is set to public, your followers and anyone will be able to view your story and profile.
