In our blog today, we’re going to talk about these labels on Instagram, more specifically about how you can remove, hide, and change them on your profile. If you’ve felt stuck while doing these tasks in the past, stick with us till the end to learn the right way of doing it.

How to Remove Category Label on Instagram

Before we delve into removing the category label from your Instagram profile, let’s tell you this: there’s no way to remove this label from your account completely. The category section is a mandatory field in all professional accounts on the platform.

With that being said, if you have issues with other people seeing this label on your profile, we have a way to fix that: by hiding this label from your profile. If this sounds appealing to you, follow the step-by-step guide we’ve curated below to get it done.

Step 1: Launch the Instagram app on your smartphone by navigating the mobile app’s icon in your device’s menu grid.

From the home tab that you first land on, navigate your profile picture’s thumbnail icon on the bottom-right corner of the screen and tap on it.

Step 2: Once you reach your Profile tab, below your profile picture, name, and bio, you’ll find a white Edit Profile button. Tap on this button.

Step 3: Now, you can easily divide the Edit Profile tab into two parts: the first half contains fields like your name, username, website, and bio.

On the other hand, the second half has more to do with your Public business information, such as the details of your business page, the category of your business, its contact options, the Action buttons that you want to display on your profile, and so on.

The last option of this section is of Profile display, which determines what details are visible to others on your profile. Tap on this option.

Step 4: As soon as you do, you’ll be taken to a different tab: Profile display.

On this tab, you’ll find two options with toggle switches next to both:

Display category label

Display contact info 

Step 5: Now, Instagram keeps these switches turned on by default. And in order to remove the category label, you’ll need to swipe left on the first toggle and then tap on tick icon (on Android devices) or Done button (for iOS devices) located at the top-right corner of the screen.

When you return to your profile now, you’ll notice the category label to have been disappeared from its rightful place under your/your company’s name.
