How to Mute Someone on Instagram

Hey there, Instagram enthusiasts! Today, we’re going to talk about a handy feature on Instagram – muting! Sometimes, you want to keep certain people from seeing your posts or stories without going as far as blocking them. So, let’s dive into how you can mute someone on Instagram.

Muting a Specific Post on Instagram

First things first, if you want to mute someone on a specific post, you’ll need to locate that post on their profile. Once you’ve found it, just tap on the post. Look for those three little dots under the post – they’re your secret to muting. Tap on those dots, and you’ll see the ‘Mute’ option. Voila! You can now mute that particular photo or video from that person.

Step by Step

Step 1: Open your Instagram app and log in to your account if you’re not already logged in.

Step 2: Navigate to the profile of the user whose posts you want to mute. You can do this by searching for their username or by finding them in your followers or following list.

Step 3: Once you’re on their profile, find a post from that user that you want to mute. It could be any post on their profile.

Step 4: Tap on the post to open it and view it in full screen.

Step 5: Look for three small dots (an ellipsis) located somewhere on or below the post. These dots indicate the options menu for that post.

Step 6: Tap on the three dots to open the options menu.

Step 7: In the options menu, you will see a list of actions you can take. Look for the “Mute” option and tap on it.

Step 8: A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you want to mute posts from this user. Confirm your choice by tapping “Mute Posts.”

Muting Instagram Stories

Now, what if you want to mute someone’s Instagram Stories? It’s just as easy! Head over to your Stories section and find the person whose stories you want to mute. You have two options here. You can either long-press their profile in the Stories section, and a menu will pop up with the ‘Mute’ option. Alternatively, you can go to their profile directly, and there you’ll find the option to mute them. Simple, right?

Step by Step Muting Stories

Step 1: Open your Instagram app and log in to your account if you’re not already logged in.

Step 2: Swipe right from your Instagram home feed or tap on your profile picture in the top-left corner of the screen to access the Stories section.

Step 3: In the Stories section, you will see a list of profile pictures representing users who have posted stories. Locate the profile picture of the user whose stories you want to mute.

Step 4: To mute a user’s stories, you have two options:

  • Option 1: Long-press on the profile picture of the user whose stories you want to mute. Hold your finger on the profile picture until a menu appears.
  • Option 2: Alternatively, you can tap on the user’s profile picture to view their story. Once you’re viewing their story, tap on their profile picture again to bring up their profile.

Step 5: In the menu that appears or on the user’s profile, you will see an option to “Mute” or “Unmute” their stories. Tap on “Mute.”

Step 6: A confirmation prompt will appear asking if you want to mute this user’s stories. Confirm your choice by tapping “Mute Stories.”

But here’s a little heads-up: If the person you’ve muted happens to notice from someone else’s account that they can’t see your posts or stories anymore, they might ask you about it. So, be ready for that potential conversation.

That’s the lowdown on how to mute on Instagram. It’s a great way to keep your feed more tailored to your preferences without having to go all the way to blocking someone. Give it a try and enjoy a more peaceful scrolling experience! πŸ“ΈπŸ”‡βœ¨
