How to hide posts on Instagram without deleting them

Instagram It has an option that allows you to hide posts from the feed without deleting them. This is a very useful tool when, for whatever reason, you want to remove the visibility of a post but without completely eliminating it. This function is called “file” and to make use of it you have to follow these steps:


1. You have to press on the three points of the publication and choose the option that says “file”. That way the image will be hidden but not deleted.

2. In the event that what you want to hide is a video, then you have to follow the same steps but click on the option that says “remove from the profile grid”. It is a way to archive the clips since they will no longer be seen in the feed.


3. To access the content that has been archived, click on the three horizontal lines that are in the upper right margin and choose the option Archive. There you can access not only the archives of posts, but also stories and live videos.

4. On the other hand, the clips that have been removed from the grid can be seen when entering the section reelsor videos, depending on how they were loaded. To enter these sections, you must click on the corresponding icon found in the upper margin when entering the account profile, just above the posts.
