I’ll admit it. I love scrolling through Instagram. Spending hours on the app scrolling through memes, interesting carousels, reels, IGTV videos, and other content. However, I have a couple of people in my account with whom I do not want to be updated. I mean, unfollowing them isn’t a good idea (they’ll find out! ), but what if could I just mute them on Instagram and not be notified of their existence? That’s great! In this post, I’ll show you three different ways to mute someone on Instagram from your iPhone. But before we get to the list, it’s important to understand;

What Happens When You Silence Someone On Instagram?

When you mute someone’s Instagram account, you will no longer receive notifications of their updates, stories, or posts. You can, however, visit their profiles and look for their posts. If that individual tags you in a post or comments on your name, Instagram will alert you. However, Instagram does not notify the person whose account you have muted.

How To Mute A User On Instagram Using An iPhone

Mute Your Instagram Feed

  1. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down to the person’s post.
  3. The three dots next to the person’s handle can be tapped.
  4. Mute the sound. A pop-up window will appear.
  5. Mute according to your preferences. Mute either Posts or both Posts and Stories.

That’s it. The person in question has been muted, and Instagram will no longer send you updates from that account. Your gesture will also be unknown to the person in question.

Mute Their Instagram Stories

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. Scroll down to the person’s story.
  3. Long press on the story. You will see two options.
  4. Mute the sound. A pop-up window will appear.
  5. Mute according to your preferences. The story, or both Posts and Stories, can be muted.

Isn’t that simple? But what if the person hasn’t posted or shared a story in a long time? Here’s how to silence them.

Mute An Instagram Account’s Profile

It is simple to unmute an Instagram account. This is how it’s done.
