If you’ve accidentally liked a photo on Instagram and can’t recall what it was, or you wish to remove your likes from a particular user’s profile, you’re in luck. Instagram provides a dedicated section where you can review and delete your likes. Whether it’s an accidental tap or a change of heart, you can easily manage your Instagram likes with these steps.
How to Check and Delete Likes on Instagram:
Open the Instagram app and navigate to your profile by tapping on your profile picture or name.
In the upper-right corner of your profile, tap on the three horizontal lines to access the menu.
Scroll down the menu and select “Your activity.”
In the “Your activity” section, you’ll find a list of your Instagram interactions, including likes, comments, tags, responses to stickers, and more.
Tap on “Likes” to view all the posts you’ve liked on Instagram.
You can use various filter and sorting options at the top to organize your likes, such as sorting from oldest to newest, newest to oldest, date filters, or author filters.
Scroll through the list of posts you’ve liked, and select the ones you want to remove your like from.
After selecting the posts, tap on “Unlike” at the bottom to delete your likes. You can choose to delete recent likes, likes from a specific user, or likes from a particular date.
Once you’ve removed the likes, you can continue using the Instagram app as usual.
Hiding Likes on Your Instagram Photos:
If you’d like to hide the like count on your own Instagram photos, follow these steps:
Go to your Instagram profile and access your photo gallery.
Find the photo you want to hide the like count for and tap on it.
In the upper-right corner, tap on the three dots to access options for that specific post.
Scroll through the options until you find “Hide like count.” Tap on it.
The like count for that photo will now be hidden, and it will display “one user and other people” instead of the specific like count.
If you wish to hide like counts by default on all your Instagram posts, you can do so through your Instagram settings:
Go to your Instagram profile and tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper-right corner.
Tap on the gear icon to access “Settings and privacy.”
Scroll down and find the section labeled “What you see.”
Within this section, you’ll see “Like count.” Tap on it.
Activate the “Hide like count” toggle switch.
By following these steps, you can easily manage and delete your Instagram likes or choose to hide like counts on your own posts.
