So here’s how to untag yourself on Instagram in 2023 and in the upcoming months. I’m writing this blog on 1 October, which will still be relevant to the 11th Instagram update. It means steps and screenshots are valid for up to the next 9 months. Someone asked us: How to untag myself from an Instagram post.
Quick Untag Instagram
To untag yourself on Instagram in 2023 and beyond, open the app, tap your profile icon, and locate the tag icon in your profile section to find posts where you’ve been mentioned. Select the post you want to untag from and tap the three dots in the top right corner, then choose “tag options.” You can either “remove yourself from the post” or “hide it from your profile.” Another approach is to contact the person who tagged you directly, ask them to remove your tag and provide instructions or screenshots if needed. Express gratitude for their cooperation.
How to Untag Yourself on Instagram
To start, open the Instagram app. First, tap on your profile icon in the bottom navigation bar, where you’ll find a home icon. Sometimes, you might notice a red dot on the home tab.
In your profile section, where your posts and your followers are mentioned, look for an icon that resembles a tag. This icon is used to identify people who have mentioned you in their Instagram posts.
Now, select the post from which you want to remove your tag. Once you’re inside the post, tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the post. From there, choose ‘tag options.’
In the tag options menu, you’ll find a few choices, such as “remove me from the post” and “hide from my profile.” If you select “remove me from the post,” it will completely untag you. This means that even if someone likes or comments on the post, you won’t receive notifications. However, if you choose to “hide it from your profile,” the post will be hidden from all the people who follow you. If your account is public, it will be hidden from everyone. If someone tags the post, you will still receive notifications.
- Open the Instagram app and tap your profile icon in the bottom navigation bar.
- Look for the tag icon in your profile section to find posts where you’ve been mentioned.
- Select the post you want to untag from, then tap the three dots in the top right corner.
- Choose “tag options” from the menu that appears.
- Pick “remove me from the post” to completely untag yourself. Selecting “hide from my profile” hides the post from your followers, but you’ll still get notifications if someone tags it.
Alternative To Remove Tag From Instagram
Another way to untag yourself from an Instagram post is by directly contacting the person who mentioned you in the post. You can ask them to remove your tag. They have the ability to edit their Instagram post to untag you, and this approach can be quite helpful if you find the previously mentioned steps to be too complicated. If you’ve provided them with screenshots or clear instructions on how to do it, it should make the process easier for them to understand and follow. This way, they can quickly remove your tag from their post, which is a convenient solution for both parties.
Steps to Do it
- Identify the post you want to be untagged from.
- Directly message the person who tagged you.
- Politely ask them to remove your tag from the post.
- Offer clear instructions or screenshots if needed.
- Confirm the removal of the tag.
- Express gratitude for their cooperation.
