How To Mute Instagram Followers And Posts On iPhone

If you want to mute someone on Instagram, the easiest is unfollowing them. However, in certain circumstances, you can’t do that. For instance, your best friends post a lot of annoying stuff, but you can’t unfollow them. Although Instagram is a great app, it still lacks many features. Until now, after a lot of updates,  there is not a “mute” button friends that you’re forced to follow.

However, there is now a solution for you. This method is compatible with all iPhones. You can now easily mute anyone on Instagram without unfollowing them. Here are two common ways you can do that.

For Jailbroken iPhones

InstaMute is a new jailbreak tweak that is released for Instagram users to mute anyone from their feed. Similar to Twitter, if you don’t want to see the posts of one specific follower, you can easily mute them without unfollowing that person.

You can download and InstaMute tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo and then use it to mute someone on Instagram. After that, their will not appear on your timeline anymore.

In case you no longer want to mute them, simply go to their wall and tap on Unmute.

Rocket for Instagram

How about non-jailbreak device? It’s not a problem. You can easily mute your Instagram followers with the help of the tweaked version of the Instagram app. Besides adding a “Mute” button, the tweaked version (named Rocket)  of the Instagram also lets you save other people’s photos and stories if you want.

The Rocket app also allows you to spoof your profile’s details as well as add a verified checkmark so that your page will look more legit. However, you should note that when someone visits your profile, they just see your real status. So, this feature is only useful if you want to take screenshots.

But Rocket for Instagram still allows you to mute notifications from people on Instagram. You can download and install the app from here and sideload the app using Cydia Impactor.
