You can share quick moments with your Instagram followers by posting Instagram Stories, which are full-screen photos and videos that disappear after 24 hours. If you don’t want anyone in particular to see your Instagram Stories, you can add them to your “Hide From Story” list. Here’s how to hide your Instagram story.
When you hide stories from followers, it’s no longer wise that you have. They’ll still be able to see your regular posts in their home page feed, view your profile, and interact with you – they just won’t see your Stories appear in their Stories feed or on your profile. It may be preferable to block or remove them as a follower.

Extra tips on how to hide your Instagram Stories
Note that you can only hide current followers from your Stories, not just anyone. So, if your Instagram profile is set as public and you see that people who don’t follow you are also viewing your Stories, you might want to consider making your Instagram profile private.
You may also notice that your story appears on a location page or hashtag page, which you can see at the top of the view counter. To hide it from appearing here, simply tap on X to the right of the location or hashtag page.
Finally, if you prefer to share certain stories with a smaller group of people, you should consider using Instagram’s Close Friends feature, which allows you to share stories only with a group of followers of your choice.
