How to Hide Likes and Views on Instagram

With the advent of technology, Instagram users have become both content creators and viewers.

The photo and video-sharing platform rolled out a new feature earlier this year where users can hide likes and views on Instagram.

You don’t have to go through the same numeric values mentioned under every post. It will now appear as names of a few users and ‘others’.

You need to follow these steps to enable this option in your Instagram account.

Launch the Instagram app. Head towards your profile section & tap on the hamburger-shaped icon from the top-right corner of your screen.


Now, tap on the ‘Privacy’ option.


Hit ‘Posts’.


Under the Likes and Views section, you will find a toggle that reads, ‘Hide Like and View Counts’. Enable the toggle.


Instagram announced that it is testing two new ways to give users more control over their feed.
