To Hide Who You Follow On Instagram:
Instagram is one of the most revealing social media platforms where you can keep up with people’s lives and see what they do or how their day went. You can even see their location if they choose to disclose it.
But what is the solution if you don’t want to disclose any specific details about yourself, including the people you’re following/following you?
However, do you still want to be present on social media? Stick throughout the article to learn how to hide who you follow on Instagram.
It's important to note that the steps to hide who you follow on Instagram only affect the visibility of your followers and those not following you.
These steps only apply to private Instagram accounts, as business accounts do not have this option.
Additionally, it's essential to understand that while these steps hide the usernames of the accounts that you follow, they do not hide the total number of followers or following. The numbers will still be visible to others who view your profile.
If you have a private Instagram account, anyone can see the number of people you follow or who follow you, but they won’t be able to see the specific usernames.
Privacy has been under-appreciated since social media peaked, but sometimes you must consider your safety first. So, what are the steps for making the switch to private? Let’s review the steps.
When you make your Instagram profile private, only people you have approved as followers can see your posts, stories, and other content.
Here are some other things you might experience when setting your account to private.
If you wish to hide who you follow/who follows you on Instagram from a specific person, then the easiest way to do so is to restrict their account, aka remove them from your following list.
Simply just tap on your followers’ list, wait for it to open, search for the account you want to be removed, and tap “Remove.”
You can also use the “block feature” to restrict someone from viewing your following list. When you block someone on Instagram, the person can’t see anything from your stories to your following list.
