If you’ve ever wanted to hide a post on your Instagram profile whether it be temporarily or for good, you can do this very easily without having to actually delete the post. This is a great option because you won’t lose any of the likes, comments or views from the post and you can make it appear on your profile again whenever you like.
Step 1: Open the Instagram app on your device and find the post on your profile that you want to hide.
Step 2: Tap the three dots button in the top right corner of the post and select “Archive”.
Your post will now be archived and if you go back to your profile you will notice the post no longer shows up. If you want to make the post appear on your profile again, here’s how you can do that.
Step 1: Go to your Instagram profile and tap the button in the top right corner of the screen to access the menu.
Step 2: Tap “Archive”. Once the page loads tap “Archive” again at the top of the screen and select “Posts”.
Step 3: Here you will find all of the posts you have archived. Tap on the post you want to bring back to your profile.
Step 4: Tap the three dots button in the top right corner of the post and select “Show on Profile”.
Done! Now go back to your profile and you will see the post back in it’s original spot.
