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.
So, if you want to hide your Stories from specific followers, then you can follow these simple steps:
Steps To Hide Your Instagram Stories From Specific People
1. First, go to your Profile and tap on your Profile Picture to open the Stories.
2. The camera should open for you to capture Stories. Tap on the gear icon to open the Story Settings.
3. The first setting you will find is “Hide Story From”. If the list is empty, then you will see 0 people. Tap on it, to edit it.
4. A list will appear. Tap on the names from whom you want to hide your Instagram stories. Check the box beside the names and finally tap on the tick mark at the top right corner of the screen.
That’s all. Similarly if you want to remove any people from this list, simply follow the above steps and uncheck the names.
