Instagram recently introduced a new feature that allows you to view suggested posts based on the content you've liked in the accounts you're following.
In this guide I will reveal you how to delete Instagram suggested posts which are marked with the label Recommended for you and which are visible directly in the feed.
How to delete Instagram suggested posts
There are about five posts recommended by Instagram for you in the feed, a number that increases if you decide to click on the magnifying glass icon to view other similar content.
But if you don't love this new feature, there is a possibility of temporarily hide recommending posts for you within feeds. To do this, go to Settings of the post (the three vertical dots above the post) and in the menu that appears press on I do not care and the suggested item will be deleted.
Alternatively you can also press on Report… to report posts that don't follow community guidelines.
These unfortunately are the only possibilities you can take advantage of for delete Instagram suggested posts.
To take advantage of this new feature you will need to update the Instagram app for both Android and iOS mobile devices.
