Instagram Archive Lets You Hide Old, Unwanted Photos

Instagram is testing out a new ‘Archive’ feature that lets you hide unwanted photos.

The Instagram Archive feature, the app’s latest update, lets you hide select posts in a separate page from your followers.

For those of you who want a more “curated” profile, Instagram is rolling out a new ‘Archive’ feature that lets you hide embarrassing and unwanted posts from your past.

To access this new feature, simply press the “…” button on one of your posts and hit the ‘Archive’ option. Once achieved,  your posts will be moved to a separate page on the app.

Your followers won’t be able to see your posts, but you can still view the likes and comments. If you ever have a change of heart, you can also choose to restore your posts back to your profile.

According to The Verge, this new feature was rolled out a few days ago, and it might not be accessible to everyone just yet.
