In the recent update Instagram released the hide likes and views feature to everyone. Through this feature you can hide or unhide likes and views of the posts in Instagram. So in this post I am going to show how to turn off likes and views count on Instagram.

Why Instagram introduce these feature

Instagram says seeing  counts of likes and views are annoying to some users and beneficial  for some. Therefore they give more control features to users to improve their own user experience.

As well as Instagram believes when turning off likes and views count  people can focus the content being shared instead of numbers. This feature also helps to get real people responses to the post without knowing how many likes were received.

Note-This feature is not available for IG TV and Reels. You can’t hide like and views counts on these two platforms in Instagram.
