How do I unfollow someone on Instagram?

To unfollow someone:

  1. Go to the profile of the person you'd like to unfollow
  2. Tap then tap Unfollow to confirm

Once you've unfollowed someone, their profile will say Follow instead of Following. People won't be notified when you unfollow them.

Note: The only way to remove someone from your followers is to block them. When you block someone, the blocked person can't see your photos/videos or search for your Instagram account. The blocked person isn't notified when they're blocked.
