Have you ever wanted to hide a conversation on Instagram? You may have accidentally started following someone and don't want them to know. Maybe you're trying to avoid someone who's following you.

Or maybe you want to keep things private but keep the connection open so they can see your posts. Whatever the reason, hiding conversations is a great way to keep things quiet while staying connected with people on Instagram.

Here's how:

  • First, go to the person's profile page you want to hide from. Then click the three dots on the right side (...) next to their username in your list of followers. A new window will open with options for interacting with them, including unfollowing, blocking them from commenting or sending direct messages (if they're harassing you).
  • You can also choose "Hide Conversation" at the bottom of this menu. That way, if anyone else scrolls through your profile page, they won't see any notifications about having conversations with this person—but if they click on their username or try searching for them in the search bar (which shows all public profiles), they'll still be able to see what they were talking about before hiding it away! 
  • This is an excellent option if you're getting harassed but don't want to block or unfollow the harasser. If you wish to be able to find this person later, click the box next to "Mute Conversation." This will hide all their messages from your inbox but still let you see them if you click on the muted conversation in your list of direct messages.

Instagram secret chat?

Instagram secret chat lets you send messages to your friends that only they can see.

You can also set the messages so that only you and your friend can see them after 24 hours—and that means no worrying about someone accidentally reading your message and accidentally liking it!

To use secret chat, you must use Instagram version 29 or later. If you're unsure which version you have, open the app and look for a little gear icon in the top-right corner of your screen. 

If there's no gear icon, you're on an older version and must update your app before you can use the secret chat.

Once you've updated your app and opened up secret chat, tap on the friend whose profile picture you want to talk to

Then tap on their name. You'll see a button that reads "secret." Tap that button, and then type in whatever message you want to send them!

They'll get a notification in their regular Instagram notifications tab when they receive your message. Then, they can reply by tapping on the message and typing in their response—like regular Instagram DM chats!
