For those who are still new to Instagram, Highlights are just like any other story you post on this social platform, but they are visible for more than 24 hours, meaning they stay on one’s profile till they decide to delete them.
The Instagram Highlights feature was first introduced as a derivative from Snapchat, and users loved it from the beginning because their stories did not necessarily have to disappear after those 24 hours.
However, there are times when users just want to hide these highlights from someone specific or a group of people, and there can be plenty of reasons why they want to do it.
But, is it possible to hide these IG highlights or not? - let's discover that down below.

Instagram Highlights are Instagram’s feature that allows users to save and categorize their Stories on their IG profile. They are a great option for old and new followers to interact with their past stories (past those 24 hours).
Unfortunately, you cannot hide Instagram Story Highlights as they are meant to stay on one’s profile for a longer period of time and users can not hide them but only delete them.
On the contrary, IG stories are the ones that users can choose to hide and from whom.
In addition, you can only hide your IG Highlights from someone as long as you blocked an account from seeing your Stories. That way, they will be automatically blocked from viewing your Highlights as well.
