How can I hide or unhide like and view counts on Instagram?
To hide or unhide like and view counts, log in to the Instagram app for Android and iPhone and follow the steps below. This setting isn’t currently available to everyone.
You can change whether you see the total number of likes and views on posts that appear in Feed. You can also change this setting for posts you share to Feed. You'll still be able to see the total number of likes and views on your own posts.
To hide or unhide like and view counts on other’s posts in Feed:
  1. Tap instagram-user-profile or your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  2. Tap three lines stacked on top of each other in the top right, then tap a symbol circle gearSettings.
  3. Tap Privacy, then tap Posts.
  4. Tap or next to Hide Like and View Counts to turn this setting on or off.
To hide or unhide like and view counts before sharing your post to Feed:
  1. Before sharing a post, tap Advanced Settings at the bottom.
  2. Tap or next to Hide Like and View Counts for videos or Hide Like Counts for photos to turn this setting on or off.
To edit the like and view count setting on a post you’ve already shared to Feed:
  1. Tap ig-three-dots (Android) or ig-three-dots (iPhone) in the top right of your post.
  2. Tap Hide Like Counts or Hide Like and View Counts to turn this setting on. Tap Unhide Like Counts or Unhide Like and View Counts to turn this setting off.
Keep in mind, these settings only hide like and view counts on posts in Feed. You and others on Instagram will still be able to see like and view counts in places like the Reels tab.
