How do I archive a post I've shared on Instagram?

You can archive a post you've shared to hide it from your profile and make it so your followers and other people on Instagram can't see it. When you archive a post, it keeps all its likes and comments.

  1. Go to your profile.
  2. Tap the post you'd like to archive.
  3. Tap (iOS) or (Android) in the top right.
  4. Select Archive.

Once you've archived a post, you can choose to show it on your profile again. The post will return to its original spot on your profile.

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. Tap Archive.
  3. Tap Archive > Posts (iOS) or Posts Archive (Android).
  4. Tap the post you'd like to show on your profile.
  5. Tap (iOS) or (Android) in the top right, then select Show on Profile.
