    Before explaining to you how to hide who you follow on instagram, I have to give you some very important preliminary information. In fact, you must know that, in the current state of things, there is no ad hoc function that allows you to hide the people followed on the famous photographic social network.

    Don't worry though: you can still succeed in the intent you proposed by adopting two alternative solutions: make yours private account or block users to whom you want to make your data and content inaccessible.



    The privatization of your profile implies that all the contents of your account (photos and videos published, but also the names of the people you follow and who follow you) can only be viewed by your current followers or by those you approve as new followers .

    If, on the other hand, you decide to block a person on Instagram, not only will it no longer be able to see who you follow on the social network, but it will no longer be able to find your account, view your profile and everything about you, including your photos, your videos and your comments.

    Choosing which of your solutions to implement is up to you, based on your needs and preferences. In any case, don't worry: in both cases, these are completely reversible operations. Find all the indications to proceed in the following paragraphs.
