How do I mute or unmute someone on Instagram?

To mute or unmute someone, log into the Instagram app for Android or iPhone or the Instagram Lite app for Android and follow the instructions below.

If you don't want to see someone's posts in your feed, you can mute them:

Mute or unmute an account through their profile
  1. Go to their profile by tapping at the bottom.
  2. Type their name into the search at the top and select their profile when it appears.
  3. Tap Following below their profile info.
  4. Tap Mute.
  5. Tap next to Posts or Stories.

To unmute them, tap next to Posts or Stories.

Mute or unmute an account through Feed
  1. Tap (iPhone) (Android) next to their post.
  2. Select Mute, then tap Mute Posts or Mute Posts and Story.

Instagram won't let them know you muted them. Muting someone's posts is different from unfollowing them and from muting their stories.
