If you are wondering how to turn off suggested posts on Instagram, then this is the article for you.

As you scroll through your Instagram feed, you may come across suggested posts from Instagram. These posts are generally from pages you don't follow and appear after you've seen all the most recent posts from accounts that you follow.

While not as frustrating as if Instagram won't let you post or if Instagram deletes your account, these suggested posts can get frustrating. We know it is impossible to turn off suggested posts on Facebook, but what about Instagram? Luckily, it's possible!

In this article, we will show you how to turn off suggested posts on Instagram. Let's get started!

How To Turn Off Suggested Posts On Instagram On Android

Instagram doesn't have the option to turn off suggested posts. Luckily, you can tweak your Instagram feed in a way that you only see posts from people you follow in your Instagram feed in reverse chronological order. To do that:

  • Tap Instagram in the top left of your feed
  • Then, tap Following and you are done!

Afterwards, you will only see posts from people you follow in your Instagram feed. You can select Favourites to see posts only from the people you have added to your favourites list.

Alternatively, you can choose to hide suggested posts that don't interest you. These suggestions are based on things such as your activity, connections, how popular the post is, and so on. If you're not interested in a suggested post, you can simply hide it, so Instagram won't suggest similar in the future.

As a result, Instagram will no longer suggest you post from that account. In this way, you can tailor your Instagram experience to your preferences - just like how you reset your Instagram Explore feed.

To hide a suggested post on your Android device:

  • Tap the three vertical dots icon above the post, then tap Not interested. You can also hide a suggested post by tapping the X icon above the post.
  • Below Post hidden, you can:
    • Tap the X in the circle icon to stop seeing similar suggested posts in your feed.
    • Press the clock icon to snooze all suggested posts in your feed for 30 days.
    • Tap the three horizontal lines icon to see more options. If you tap This post made me uncomfortable, you can report it by tapping Report and following the on-screen instructions.

Future suggestions in the feed will reflect your response and you will no longer receive suggestions from that account. Another thing, if you see something that doesn't follow the Community Guidelines, you can report it.

Your response will be reflected in future suggestions in the feed. This is just like giving Instagram your feedback on their suggestions, so they can provide you with more relevant content that matches your interests.
