How to manage your photo and video tags on Instagram

Instagram's features are constantly being updated, with new features being added and old ones discontinued. In our “Instagram Guides,” we’ll look at Instagram, explain its new and old features, and show you how to get the most out of the platform for your marketing strategy. Today: here's how to manage your photo and video tags on Instagram.

Where can I see when someone has tagged me in photos or videos on Instagram?

You can see when someone has tagged you on Instagram in just a few clicks. To do so, simply open your Instagram app and go to your personal profile. Then tap the right icon above your feed posts. This will show you all the posts you've been tagged in. Click on the image to go directly to the post.

How do I hide photos or videos I've been tagged in from my Instagram profile?

If you don't want people to see the tags on your profile, you can easily hide them:

1. Tap the photo or video where you've been tagged.

2. Tap on your username.

3. Tap "Hide from my profile."

If you want to unhide the photo or video and have it appear again on your profile, repeat the first two steps, but then tap "Show on my profile."

This is how you hide multiple photos or videos at once:

1. Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your personal profile.

2. Tap the menu in the top right, then tap "Settings."

3. Tap "Privacy" and then "Tags."

4. Tap "Manually approve tags."

5. Tap "Edit" next to "Posts with tags."

6. Select the photos or videos you want to hide from your profile, and then tap "Hide."

7. Tap "Hide from my profile."

Note: Hiding a photo or video from your profile will not actually remove the tag.

How to remove a tag from a photo or video where you have been tagged

1. Tap on the photo or video.

2. Tap your username.

3. Tap "Remove me from the post."

4. Tap "Remove."

Note: You can also choose who can and can't tag you in their posts in your privacy settings.

How do I set whether photos and videos I've been tagged in show up on my Instagram profile?

You can choose whether photos and videos you've been tagged in appear on your profile automatically or by manually adding them. If you choose to add photos and videos manually, photos and videos won't appear on your profile until you approve them. By default, when someone tags a photo or video of yours, it is automatically added to your profile.
