See a user's content again

Previously, our guides have shown you how to mute someone’s Instagram Story and mute someone’s posts from your Instagram feed. But what if you change your mind and want to unmute someone’s content? Our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Go to the profile of the user you wish to unmute. You can get there by searching for their profile on Instagram’s explore tab, or by tapping on them in the list of accounts you follow. Note: You can also view all of the users you’ve muted by going to your profile, tapping the three horizontal lines in the top-right corner of the screen, tapping “Settings,” tapping “Privacy” and tapping “Muted Accounts.”

Step 2: Tap the “Following” button.

Step 3: Tap “Mute.”

Step 4: Tap the toggle to the right of the mute option you wish to turn off (Posts, Stories or both). Note: If a mute option is active, the toggle will be blue. If it’s turned off, the toggle will be white.
