How To Disable Highlights Resharing On Instagram Story?

The Instagram Story feature had been launched a long time ago. You must be aware of it, if you are an Instagram user. The Story feature allows you to post photos, video clips, Boomerangs, GIFs, but only for a day, that is, 24 hours. You can hold polls, insert hashtags on your Stories and do many more things. With time, Instagram has replenished the settings, especially the privacy customization settings. You can now refrain people from checking your Stories or only share with those who are your close friends. Yes, we know that all Instagram Stories are not meant to be shared with all. You may want to share certain stories with only your close friends. In that case, Instagram allows you to create a custom list of close friends who can see your posts and no one else.

However, there are some Stories that are very special to us and you want to keep them not just for a day but for ever. For such stories, Instagram introduced the Highlights feature. The Highlights feature keeps your story for an indefinite period of time on your Instagram profile. You can view them any time you want. The highlighted stories do not disappear. Your followers can share your Highlights with other people as messages. The app allows it, but if you are not happy with this, then you can stop Highlights resharing. Check out how to do that!
