How To Hide Likes on Instagram

By  | 


In an effort to make users’ experiences more engaging, Instagram released the option to hide like and view counts on all posts in their feed. This way users can concentrate on the content, rather than the reputation and likes of the content.

This update also provided users the choice to hide the like and view counts on their posts from other users. You can hide the like and view count on a post even before you post it or you can do so retroactively.

Here is a guide to take you through how to hide Instagram likes on your feed and on your own posts.


How to hide likes on other accounts:

1. Open your Instagram profile

2. Select the three black lines in the upper right corner

3. Select “Settings”

4. Search for posts and select “Posts”

5. Turn on “Hide Like and View Counts”

How to hide likes on your Instagram post before you share it:

1. On the final page before you post your Instagram photo (where you write your caption and tag accounts), scroll down and select “Advanced Settings” in grey.


How to hide likes on your Instagram post retroactively:

1. Go to the post you want to hide likes on

2. Tap the three gray dots in the right-hand corner of the post

3. Select “Hide Like Count”

After hiding like counts under a post it will say “liked by one user and others.”
