Are you the one who is concerned about the likes you get on Instagram posts and feel bad when the number doesn’t meet the expectation? If yes, then I have a way out from this problem, turn off/ hide the likes on entertaining IG posts. However, if you don’t know about this feature, I will teach you the easiest way on how to turn off likes on Instagram.

Instagram continuously adds new features to its application, and one such, worth noting feature that it added in its latest update is turning off the likes on posts. Now what it does is that it hides the number of likes and view counts on your IG posts and can even hide the number of likes on others posts on your homepage. 

There are three ways to activate turn-off likes on Instagram. So, while uploading a new post, manually select the post on which you want to turn off the likes, and lastly, from the profile setting option. While uploading a new post, there is an option called advanced setting, and  there, you will see the “hide like and view count.” 

The elaborated steps on how to turn off likes on Instagram on your and others’ profiles through different ways are given in this article; to know about that, you need to read the article.

Definitely, privacy can be the major reason for turning off likes on Instagram posts, therefore one way through which you can hide like count is while uploading a new post. The steps that you need to follow are:

  • Select the image that you want to post on Instagram by touching the plus button on the top right corner of the screen
  • After that, apply the filters (if you want to), and then a new white screen will open up that says New post.
  • Here click on the Advanced setting option; once you do that, the very first option will be Hide like and View counts on this post.

Once you turn on this option, your new uploaded photo will not show the like counts. If you want to see how many people liked your photo, click on “others” below the heart button.

If you want to hide the like count on a selected photo that you uploaded a long time ago, go to the profile option and then follow these steps:

  • Once you open your profile, scroll, and find the image, you want to hide the likes.
  • Select the image, and on the top of it, you will find three dots.
  • When you click on these dots, a bottom half screen menu will open, which has the option of hiding like count

This will automatically hide the number of likes on that particular post. You can reset the setting by following the same steps as mentioned above, but this time, the only difference will be that the hide option will be replaced by an unhide-like count opinion.

For me, writing is something that helps me escape from reality for a while. Even though I am an Engineer, I find my comfort from chaos while I write. I love telling people about my stories, stories that play in my mind only. When I am writing, there is no limit to how far I can go swimming in this deep ocean of words. Reading and writing are the two things that help in organizing my messed up thoughts in a formative way. Come along on this journey with me as I write and you read the stories that I have to tell!
