From connecting people from all parts of the world to opening up countless marketing and networking opportunities, the scope of Instagram is endless today. But while many creators, marketers, and businesses are using the platform to make it big in their careers, there are also users who use it solely for entertainment and can be quite bothersome to those whom they follow.
Have you ever come across such a user on the platform? If you have, we bet it isn’t easy for you to respond to their pointless comments or DMs every now and then. In some cases, even letting them access your posts and stories can feel icky.
So, why don’t you get rid of them online altogether? Confused about how that’s done? Will unfollowing them help? In today’s blog, we’ll attempt to answer all these questions and help you find a safe path away from such bothersome Instagrammers. Let’s get started!

Don’t worry; it’s not a problem you need to lose sleep over. It’s a common misconception, and we’ll be glad to clear it out for you.
When you unfollow someone on Instagram, it means that you’ve stopped following their profile on the platform. As a consequence of it, you will stop seeing their posts, stories, reels, and other updates.
However, it doesn’t accomplish the task of preventing them from seeing your posts or any other content you upload on the platform.
