Now you can hide your embarrassing photos with this new Instagram feature

According to brand updates, Instagram has recently launched its new feature that helps you to archive your posts and let you hide your pictures from your profile.


Testing of this new feature started last month on some users but the feature was publicly launched on Tuesday for both iOS and Android versions of the app.

“Your profile is a representation of who you are and evolves with you over time,” Instagram said in a post.

“With archive, you have now more flexibility to shape your profile while still preserving moments that matter.”

To archive a photo or a video that you have posted, simply tap and then press “archive” from the list of options.

In order to view your archived content, tap the new circular arrow symbol on the top right of your page.

In case you change your mind and want to make an archive content viewable, hit the Archive’s circular arrow symbol and select “show on profile.”

I write out of a habit as it gives me knowledge, keeps me updated and connected to the local events and happenings around the world. I believe, it's the best way to express my thoughts and ideas to the world, and to aware people on what they're missing.
