Stop seeing unwanted advertisements

As you view Instagram Stories posts from the users you follow, you may be presented with an advertisement you’re not interested in seeing. Our guide will show you how to hide an Instagram Stories ad.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the three dots in the bottom-right corner of the ad you wish to hide.

Step 2: Tap “Hide Ad.”

Step 3: You have the option to tell Instagram why you wanted to hide the ad. Tap “It’s not relevant,” “I see it too often” or “It’s offensive” if you want to give Instagram feedback. Otherwise, tap “Done” to hide the ad and move on to the next Stories post (if there is one).
