It's hard to imagine a popular social networking site like Instagram without photo likes. This is the main reason why users regularly add new posts, rells and stories.

By comparing the number of hearts to the number of followers, we can easily tell how many users like our content. More and more people decide to hide the number of likes under their posts - in particular, new, less popular accounts that do not have many followers yet, and the content they share reaches a narrow audience.

You too you do not have to worry about whether your photo will have many or few likes - you can change the settings at any time and hide the number of hearts under the post, just follow these steps:

  1. Open the IG application on your phone and go to your profile.
  2. Open the post for which you want to hide likes.
  3. Click on the three vertical dots in the upper right corner of the screen.
  4. Select Hide Likes.

From now on, the number of likes will be hidden under the name Others. However, this does not change the fact that after clicking, people will still be able to display all users who liked this post, but it will be much harder to count the exact number.
