If you don’t want someone to see your Instagram stories, you can make your story private by going to the privacy settings and clicking the three-dotted horizontal line in the upper right corner. Then, click on the “Hide story” button to prevent them from viewing your story. However, this will only prevent people who don’t follow you from viewing your stories. This feature also has a downside: it limits your growth.
Hide your story from people who don’t follow you. In order to hide your story from non-followers, you need to have an Instagram account that is publicly visible. To do this, navigate to the Settings menu in your account and tap Privacy. Select the “Hide story from” option. Once you have made your story private, it will remain hidden until you update it. If you’d like to let other people see your stories, you can find out how they can see them.
You can also hide your story from new accounts. Just make sure to wait for the account owner to accept you before you view their story. It’s also wise to hide your story from friends who have just started following you. This will prevent them from viewing your stories. You can also hide your story from people who blocked you. Just remember to follow the rules and regulations of Instagram. Once you do, you can hide your Instagram story from others.
