You probably know that if you don’t want to see someone’s posts in your feed, Instagram allows you to “mute” them. But what if after a while you want to see back the content they post? Or perhaps you muted someone by accident? Don’t worry. You can easily “unmute” an account on Instagram with just a few clicks.

Here’s how to unmute an Instagram account:

Step 1. Search a profile you want to unmute by tapping the button at the bottom.

And you’re done! This is how you can easily unmute anyone on Instagram. Don’t worry, Instagram won't send them a notice that you muted them. Feel free to play with this feature but remember that muting someone's posts is different from unfollowing them.
