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 someone through messages
  1. Tap send or messenger in the top right of Feed.
  2. Tap the chat with the person you want to mute/unmute.
  3. Tap the person's name at the top of your chat.
  4. Tap switch off or switch on next Mute messages or Mute call notifications to mute/unmute someone.
Mute or unmute an account through their profile
  1. Tap their username from their Feed or story post, or tap explore and search their username to go to their profile.
  2. Tap Following below their profile info.
  3. Tap Mute.
  4. Tap switch off next to Posts or Stories.
To unmute them, tap switch on next to Posts or Stories.
Mute or unmute an account through Feed
  1. Tap more (Android) or more(iPhone) next to their post.
  2. Tap Hide.

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