How to Hide Your Story From Everyone on Instagram

Hiding your stories can be done if you are concerned about your privacy.

There is an option on Instagram that allows you to hide your stories.

There are two ways you can do this:

  • Hide your stories from someone or everyone
  • Make your stories exclusive [Recommended]

Hiding Your Stories From Someone

If you plan to hide your stories from a few people, we recommend this method.

This is an option found inside the settings of Instagram.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Open Instagram
  2. Go to your profile (on the bottom right corner)
  3. Click on the 3 dash line icon (on the top right)
  4. Choose [Settings]
  5. Click on [Privacy]
  6. Find [Story] and then click it
  7. On the first and uppermost section, you can see [Viewing]
  8. Under the viewing section, you can see [Hide story from]
  9. Click on [# people]

Note: the # means the amount of people that you blocked from seeing your story.

 If you haven’t done this before, then you will see it as [0 people].

  1. After clicking on it, a list of all your followers will appear
  2. You can tap on them and it will put a check mark on the circle
  3. A [Check Marked] user will now be unable to see your stories
  4. You can now go back to Instagram

Note: To reverse this process, simply uncheck on the users and they will be able to see your stories again.

This video below will explain how to do the steps above.

This method is recommended if you have a lot of followers and want to block only a few people.

The people you block from stories will not be notified.

They will not know that you have hidden your stories from them.

Making Your Stories Exclusive

This works opposite to the first method.

This method allows you to choose who will be able to see your stories and then block everybody else.

This is the perfect method if you plan to block all followers from seeing your stories.

To do this, you just need to follow the steps below.

  1. Open Instagram
  2. Go to your profile (on the bottom right corner)
  3. Click on the 3 dash line icon (on the top right)
  4. Choose [Settings]
  5. Click on [Privacy]
  6. Find [Story] and then click it
  7. On the first and uppermost section, you can see [Viewing]
  8. Find [Close Friends]
  9. Below [Close Friends], you will see [# person]

Note: the # means the amount of people who can exclusively see your stories.

If you haven’t done this before, then you will see it as [0 person].

Important Notice: If this amount is 0, then all your followers can see your stories.

  1. Click on the [# person]
  2. Now you can choose the people who can see your stories.
  3. Click on the user that you want to give privilege to see your stories.
  4. After you click them, they will be marked with [Check Mark]
  5. You can now close the settings
  6. To reverse this process, simply uncheck the users.

Note: you can allow anyone to exclusively see your stories, even if they are not your followers.

Important Notice: If you plan to hide your stories from everyone, then you should make your stories exclusive to only 1 user on Instagram.

We recommend making it exclusive to a celebrity or a dummy account.

Celebrities will not really even bother seeing your story so they are the safest bet.

Will They Know I’m Hiding My Stories?

No, the users will not be notified if you choose to hide your stories from them.
