Did you know that in addition to muting someone’s Instagram Story, you also have the ability to mute their regular posts from your feed? When you mute someone’s posts from your feed, their posts will no longer appear in your feed, but they won’t know that you’ve muted them. Our guide will show you how to do this.
Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.
Step 1: Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of a post that was shared by the user you wish to mute.
Step 2: Tap “Mute.”
Step 3: Tap “Mute Posts.” Note: If you want to mute the user’s Story posts as well, tap “Mute Posts and Story.”
You can also mute a user’s posts by going to their profile, tapping the “Following” button and then tapping “Mute” to select which kind(s) of posts you want to mute (regular posts, Story posts or both).
