How do I hide my Instagram story from someone?
If you don't want someone to see your story, you can hide your story from them and prevent them from seeing anything you add to your story in the future. To hide your story from someone:
Instagram app for Android and iPhone and Instagram Lite app for Android
  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 Story.
  4. Tap the number of people next to Hide Story From.
  5. Select the people you'd like to hide your story from, then tap Done (iPhone) or tap back in the top left (Android). To unhide your story from someone, tap to unselect them.
You can also choose people to hide your story from as you're looking at who's seen your story. Tap (iPhone) or (Android) to the right of their name and select Hide Your Story.
Keep in mind that hiding your story from someone is different from blocking them, and doesn't prevent them from seeing your profile and posts. Your account's privacy setting also affects where your story appears.
