Instagram tagged posts
Not impressed with a photo you've been tagged in? Here's how to take it off your profile!

There’s one thing that most people will agree on. Tagged photos are not always perfect. As a matter of fact, the concept of being tagged in a photo has led multiple trolls to create memes regarding the topic.

At present, teenagers take dozens of photos before choosing which one to upload. But, things change as soon as someone decides to tag you in a post where you don’t look so good. 

Unfortunately, when someone tags you on Instagram, the post appears on your profile. So, you are exposed to the eyes of your followers. Luckily, there’s something you can do. And that is to choose which tagged posts can go to your Instagram profile. Here’s how to do it.

Instagram Tagged Posts Authorization

So, it’s all about authorization. While you can’t choose not to be tagged in Instagram posts, you can select which tagged photos go to your profile. All you need to do is to head to the settings menu and follow these steps. 

First of all, go to your profile on Instagram and tap the three lines on the upper right of the screen. Then, tap where it says settings and scroll down to the privacy and security section.  

Under there you will find a bunch of options. Tap where it says photos and videos of you. Finally, just unmark the add automatically option and that’s it. From now on, you don’t have to worry about having tagged posts you don’t like on your profile.

Additional Feature

Also, there is an additional feature under the same “Authorization menu window” that gives you the option to hide posts you have already been tagged in. 

With it, you can select previous tagged photos or videos and hide them from your timeline. All you need to do is to tap where it says “Hide photos and Videos” and select whichever post you want to hide. 

That’s it, you are now in control of the content that appears on your profile.
