Social networks make relationships a lot trickier than they used to be. After a breakup, you may not want to see your ex’s posts without explicitly unfollowing or blocking them. And we all have those friends or relatives who we don’t want out of our lives, but could use less of on social media.

If you’re facing these problems on Instagram, there’s now a solution. It’s made to prevent those awkward situations where you’re trying to explain why you unfollowed someone without being rude – a true mission impossible. You can now easily mute any Instagram account and don’t see any of their posts for as long as you want, and they won’t know it!

The steps are easy: you tap the “…” button on a post and you’ll find the mute option in the list that pops out. If you decide that you want to see that person’s posts later, you can always un-mute them. They will never be notified, so it’s a pretty descreet way to clean up your feed.
