How to Hide Likes And Views On Instagram? Here’s How To Do It
The Meta-owned platform Instagram now gives all users the option to hide or unhide the like count on posts.
How to hide likes on other people’s Instagram posts
1. Go to your profile and hit the hamburger-style icon in the upper right corner of your screen. From there, hit Settings at the top of the menu.
2. From the Settings menu, hit Privacy. Then, hit Posts.
3. At the top of the Posts menu, you’ll see a toggle labelled Hide Like and View Counts. Switch that toggle to the “on” position (it should turn blue), and you’re set—the like count from all of your Instagram posts will now be hidden.
How to hide likes on your own Instagram posts
There are two ways to hide likes on individual Instagram posts.
If you’re posting a new photo or video and don’t want the likes to show, you have the option to hide the like count before your post goes live.
Start creating your post as you usually would, but when you arrive at the screen where you can add a caption, hit the Advanced Settings option at the very bottom.
From there, you can turn on the Hide like and view counts on this post toggle.
