Hide Instagram Story from Everyone Except One Person

1. Using Hide Story Option

Instagram’s privacy feature lets you hide your stories from multiple people. Using the same, you can hide it from everyone except for people who you want to see your story uploads, as follows.

1] Open the Instagram app and head to the Profile section.

2] Tap the hamburger menu on the top right and select Settings.

3] Here, click on Privacy > Story.

4] Tap the first option, i.e., Hide Story From, and select all the people you want to hide your story from.

That’s it. From now, only the people you don’t select will be able to view your stories.

2. Using Close Friends List

The first method could be tiresome, especially when you have too many people to exclude. This is where the close friends’ feature comes to the rescue- it allows you to share stories with only a specific set of people on Instagram.

1] Open the Instagram app and head to the Profile section.

2] Tap the hamburger menu on the top right corner and hit Close Friends.

3] Now, use the search bar to look for the person you specifically want to show your stories. Remove others from your list and tap Done.

4] To post new stories, use the Close Friends button at the bottom instead of the usual ‘your story’ option.

The uploaded story will only be visible to people in your close friends’ list. Note that your story will appear with a green circle around it, and the people in the list will know that that you’ve added them as a close friend on Instagram.
