The Instagram application is designed for much more than uploading photos, at some point we may also need to hide them and so that this is not a problem for you, we show you everything you need to do. There are moments in life where we would like not to have published certain photos or moments when we want to hide photos on Instagram for some specific users, in any case, we will have the possibility to do it with the options and methods that we show you.
In order to complete everything you need, we are not only going to teach you how to hide photos in the news section, but we will also do it so that you can hide photos from Instagram stories. Times change and needs are adapting to new needs.
Steps to hide photos on Instagram
The social network Instagram has diversified widely in recent times so that we can do everything we want with the mobile, tablet or on the computer, therefore it is no longer essential to have an Android smartphone or an iPhone.
We will only have to cook session from our favourite device through the app or browser and follow the steps that we show you for each situation. In case you know of a friend or relative who is interested in doing this same trick, we invite you to share the publication with him so that he can get it.
Hide Instagram profile photos
In the classic Instagram profile where we can find all the photos that we have published and that are not deleted 24 hours a day, we can have countless photos, something that many people are limiting with the option to archive Instagram photos that we are going to put now in practice.
To start hiding photos on our Instagram profile, we just have to enter the desired photo, as if we were going to like or comment on it. In the photo itself, we will see in the upper right part a section with three points that when touched it lets us see options to delete or archive. In this case, we use the archiving one, to just hide it.
With this process, there will no longer be a trace and we or the people who visit our profile will not see as long as we do not want that photo. If we want to archive several photos on Instagram, we will have to repeat the process with each one of them.
How can I recover hidden Instagram photos?
Whether we have archived a photo by mistake or if we have regretted it, we can see it again or recover it. We will do this by entering the account’s Instagram profile again and then tapping on the three bars at the top. A menu will be displayed with a series of options where we will choose to archive.
At this point, we will see both the archives of the Instagram stories, as if we touched in the upper part, the archives of the news photos. Then it is only a matter of finding the photo, entering it and clicking again on the options to choose to show it in the profile.
When exiting these options and visiting our profile, the photo will be located in the same position as before, depending on the date it was uploaded.
Hide photos from Instagram stories
When we talk about Instagram stories, we think of photos that go more unnoticed by staying only active for 24 hours, although in the same way, we may wish that some people do not see our photos. This option has no limit of people and ensures that no one we do not want can see the photographs that we upload to the stories.
To hide the stories alone we have to enter the stories option as if we were to create a new one, but in this case, we will touch on the settings wheel that appears in the upper left part. This will take us to a series of options where we will see the possibility of hiding history from certain people.
Tapping on the option will open a list with all the users who follow us and with them a small tick that we must mark and then save so that they cannot see them.
