It can feel impossible to keep track of every part of your online profile when you're on social media. On Instagram, you can't always control the comments that people leave on your posts, but you can handle them well.

Can you hide comments on Instagram?

Yes, you can hide comments on Instagram, but you can only do it on mobile devices, hiding each comment manually. But if you have multiple Instagram accounts to manage, it’s not an easy job to hide each comment manually. To make your life easier, we’ll introduce you to Brandwise that makes it super simple to hide and manage your comments.

The importance of hiding comments

Your comment section of your posts has a huge impact on how new users will see your brand. Especially if you are running ads for your brand, the comment section can decide if a visitor becomes a customer or not.

Actively managing comments lets you create a positive and interesting space for your audience while keeping them safe from bad interactions.

Effective comment moderation also lets you start important conversations that get people really involved and talking to each other. Taking this proactive stance makes your online presence more trustworthy. It's important to acknowledge that hiding comments makes them invisible to everybody except the person who commented and you. So deleting a comment from somebody can lead them to emotions such as anger or disappointment. So it’s generally preferred to hide comments instead of deleting them right away.

Difficult way: How to hide comments on Instagram

  • Unfortunately, on Instagram web devices you can’t hide comments on your posts, but you can delete them manually. To do that, you press on the three dots under the comment and select delete. how-to-hide-comments-on-instagram-1.png
  • If you want to hide comments on Instagram posts, you have to use your mobile device to manually hide each comment you choose. To do this, you click on “hide” under the comment. With this action, other people won’t be able to see the comment, but it will only be visible to you and the person that commented. how-to-hide-comments-on-instagram-2.png
