How do I control who can reply to my story with a message?

By default, anyone who can see your story can reply to it directly with a message. When you prevent someone from replying, they won't see that option from within your story. To control who's able to reply to your story:

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. TapSettings.
  3. Tap Story Controls.
  4. Select an option below Allow Message Replies.

Keep in mind that your story disappears from Feed and your profile after 24 hours unless you add it as a highlight. After that, photos and videos from a person's story will no longer be visible in conversations. Any text that was included with a message will still be visible after the photo or video disappears.

You can also hide your story from people.
