Instagram has added archive feature for posts which allows you to hide photos and videos from your profile. When you archive any post, people won’t be able to see it on your Instagram profile. Only you will be able to see that post privately in the archived section.
So this is a great way to hide photos and videos from your Instagram profile without deleting them. You can also unarchive the post and bring it back on your profile anytime you want. Here’s everything you need to know about this new feature of Instagram.
