How To Unhide A Post On Instagram

Hey there! So you want to learn how to unhide a post on Instagram, huh? Well, you’ve come to the right place! As a tech-savvy individual who spends quite a bit of time on Instagram myself, I’ve got all the information you need to successfully unhide those hidden posts.

Why would you want to unhide a post?

Before we dive into the steps, let me quickly explain why you might want to unhide a post in the first place. Sometimes, we accidentally hide a post that we actually wanted to see on our feed. Other times, we hide a post because we didn’t want it to show up on our profile, but later change our minds.

Step 1: Open your Instagram app

The first thing you need to do is open the Instagram app on your smartphone. Make sure you are logged in to your account so that you can access your profile and the post you want to unhide.

Step 2: Go to your profile

Next, tap on your profile icon at the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to your profile page where you can see all your posts and stories.

Step 3: Access the hidden posts

Now, here’s the trick. In order to unhide a post, you need to go to the settings of your profile. To do this, tap on the three horizontal lines at the top right corner of the screen. This will open a menu.

Scroll down until you find the “Settings” option and tap on it. From the settings menu, select “Privacy” and then “Hidden Posts”.

Step 4: Unhide the post

Once you are in the “Hidden Posts” section, you will see a list of all the posts you have hidden. Find the post you want to unhide and simply tap on it.

This will open the post and allow it to reappear on your profile and in your feed. Voila! You have successfully unhidden a post on Instagram.

Step 5: Adjust your preferences (optional)

If you want to prevent accidentally hiding posts in the future, you can go back to the “Hidden Posts” section and enable the “Confirm Before Hiding” feature. This way, Instagram will ask for confirmation before hiding any post.


Unhiding a post on Instagram is a simple process that can be done within a few taps. So, the next time you hide a post by mistake or change your mind about hiding it, just follow the steps I’ve outlined above and you’ll have it back in no time. Happy scrolling!
