How to Unfollow People on Instagram?

There are basically two methods to unfollow people on Instagram:

  1. Using Instagram ++
  2. Normal Instagram

However, the route for both methods is very similar. You have to open your following list and hit the ‘Following’ (= Unfollow). Let’s start with the first method,

1. Using Instagram++

Using Instagram++

Unfollowing someone from your Insta account means that you no longer wish to see their content and activity. The method to unfollow people is very easy, just go to your ‘Following’ list and tap on the ‘Following’ button in front of the user. To unfollow two or four individuals is not a hectic task, however, unfollowing hundreds of people is surely a stressful task. 

What makes it more stressful is, ‘Confirmation’. Again and again, each time when a person hits the ‘Following (~Unfollow)’ button, a confirmation message pops up on the screen.

Well, there is one fantastic solution to cope with this issue, that is – “Instagram ++”. Instagram ++, as the name suggests another version of Instagram, which works exactly similar to the original Instagram app. 

Let’s come to the fantastic quality of Instagram++. This version of Instagram does not repeatedly ask for confirmation when you are unfollowing people. 

Now, let’s learn to use INSTAGRAM ++ for unfollowing people in bulk-

Step 1: Install > Instagram++ and login with credentials

First of all, you need to install “Instagram++” on your device. Unfortunately, you would not find this version on the Google play store or App store, but on the google web browser. Simply type ‘Instagram++ apk download’ and from any link download the app and then install it on your device.

Next after installation, enter your Instagram log-in ID and passwords to login into the installed app. Don’t worry, this version is absolutely safe and secure, your information will be all safely kept in a bubble. 

Step 2: Go to Following List

On logging in, you will land on the home page of your account. Over there, at the bottom, you will find multiple options for different features. From there, click on the “profile icon”, placed on the extreme bottom right corner of the home screen. The profile icon looks like a ‘human upper half body,’ with a head and shoulder. Click on that option and you will reach your profile page.

Over there, on the top, will see your profile picture on the left, then headings for posts, followers, and followings, on the right. To unfollow people from your account, you need to go to the “Following” section.

Tab on Following

There you will get the complete list of people you follow. Hence, tap and open the ‘Following’ page to unfollow people.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Following’ beside the name

A single tap on the “Following” head will open the list of names of people you follow, in chronological order from latest to earliest.
Now, in the list, you would be noticing two things, one – “username” on the left and a “Following” button to unfollow on the right, just in front of the username.

The second method is to unfollow people on Instagram. For this method, you do not need to install a new version of the Instagram app, but will work best will the normal, original Instagram app. The only thing with this method is that you have to face the confirmation pop-up at the time of unfollowing.

Step 1: Go to Following List

Firstly, open Instagram and log in to your account. After logging in, you will land on the home page, where at the bottom, you will find multiple options.

To go to the ‘Following’ list option tab, you have to first go to your profile page. Hence, from the bottom, click on the “profile icon”, placed on the extreme bottom right corner of the home screen.

Step 3: Tap for each people & ‘Confirm’ every time

To unfollow anyone from the ‘Following’ list, just perform the same procedure, tap on the ‘Following’ button and confirm > “Unfollow”. The person will be unfollowed. But the only thing is, every time you have to do this confirmation thing. Rest, everything is fine. 

The Bottom Line:

There is only one method to unfollow, that is, go to the ‘Following’ list and hit the ‘Following’ button.

This will unfollow the person. However, there are two ways to perform this procedure, which are mentioned above, in the article. Well, it is recommended, that if you have only 4 or 5 people to unfollow, then go with the second method, which performs these steps on the normal Instagram app, whereas if you have many people to unfollow in the queue then, go with the Instagram++ app version.

⭐️ Difference between Normal Instagram Vs Instagram++:

There are not so many differences between both apps. The only difference is, that in the Instagram ++ app you do not have to confirm the ‘Unfollow’ decision to unfollow people on the Following list.

Whereas in the case of the normal, original Instagram app, you have to confirm the unfollow decision every time you hit the ‘Following’ button to unfollow.
Well, this one difference is enough to make a decision about which one to use. One more thing to add here, as a suggestion, is, that if you have to unfollow a few people use the normal app, and to unfollow so many people use the Instagram++ app.
