How to unmute someone on Instagram

If you’ve muted someone and now want to put their stories and posts back in your News Feed, you can easily unmute a user on Instagram. Here’s how to do that on your iPhone or Android phone.

When you mute or unmute someone, Instagram does not notify the user. If you later want to mute someone again, you can easily do that.

Note: At the time of writing, in February 2022, you will not be able to unmute someone on Instagram’s desktop website.

Mute someone’s stories, posts, or both on Instagram

To unmute, first launch the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android phone. In the app, find the profile you want to unmute.

On the profile page, under the user’s name, tap ‘Follow’.

A menu will appear at the bottom of your phone’s screen. Tap “Mute” in this menu.

In the “Mute” menu that opens, uncheck the “Messages” option to unmute the user’s messages. Unmute the “Stories” option to unmute the user’s Stories.

You can control both options separately, allowing you to enable one option and disable the other.

Instagram will save your changes and you’ll start seeing your selected user’s posts and stories in your News Feed. To enjoy!
