Hiding your Instagram hashtags.
- Include them in the comment section below your post. Once other people leave a few comments, the hashtags won’t be viewable unless they click on the option to “See all”.
- Separate your hashtags from the caption by burying them beneath dots and line breaks. In the caption or comment box tap the 123 key. Select return and then enter a period. Repeat those steps at least five times. Instagram caps off captions after three lines. So, your hashtags won’t be viewable to users unless they tap the “more” option.
