Tag By Unknown People - Here Is How to Mass Untag Yourself from Instagram Photos

SHARE:

Instagram, like Facebook, lets others tag you in their videos and photos. Like any other feature, it's both a boon and a bane. It works great for group pictures, especially if you and your friends are going to upload identical photos and don't want to clutter your profile with repetitive posts. However, the circumstances change when you are tagged by virtually unknown people; worse if their posts are in bad taste and do not reflect your sentiments. Surely, you wouldn't want to be tagged in such posts, right?

How To Mass Untag Yourself From Instagram Photos And Cool Tricks

Instagram's native method of tagging and untagging is a simple process. First, open the photo and tap on the photos to display the tags. Then tap on your handle's name and hit the Remove Tag option (More options > Remove Me from Post, in the case of iOS users).

However, doing this for all the tagged photos is an insanely difficult task, and that's something I learned over a weekend while cleaning up the Photos of You tab. The situation can easily spiral out of control if your profile is tagged frequently.
Thankfully, there's a method to mass remove tagged photos from the Photos of You section on Instagram, and in this post, we will show you how to do that.

Mass Untag Yourself from Instagram Photos

Step 1: Go to your Profile and tap on the hamburger icon in the upper-right corner. Now, select Settings and scroll down until you see Hide Photos and Videos.

Step 2: Tap on it and it'll display all the images or videos where you have been tagged up until now.

All you need to do is select the photos one by one, and tap on the tiny Eye icon. That will hide all the selected photos from your profile. As easy as that!

Review Tags

Going forward, make sure that you enable the option for a manual review of the tags. You'll receive a notification as soon as someone tags you in a post, similar to Facebook's Timeline Review feature. If the tag looks fine, approve it to allow it on your profile. Otherwise, remove it.

Toggle the Add Automatically to enable this option.

Remove Mentions from Stories and Comments

Since last year, Instagram users can mention their fellow users with the use of @ followed by their Instagram handle. All your followers (and theirs as well) will be able to see your profile in the story if you have a public profile. Sadly, there is no native way to remove a mention either directly or indirectly.

The only option is to block the repeated offenders so that they can't mention you in their stories. The same goes for Instagram comments as well. There is no other way to remove yourself from unnecessary comments, other than blocking the user.

Cool Instagram Tricks

1. Share Instagram Posts as Stories

If you are someone like me who loves comic strips, Instagram is an excellent place to find them. So, if you come across a comic strip in one of your browsing sprees (don't we all love it?), there is an uncomplicated way to share it as a part of your story.

Tap on the Share icon and select Add post to your story. You can also tap on the handle name to change the look of the story. Throw in a couple of stickers and GIFs, and your story will be ready. Simple, see!

The Unwise World of Public Profiles

A public profile on Instagram means that all your activities are there for everyone else to see. Hence, it's imperative that you be careful of the image that you project. And this is especially true for business profiles. You wouldn't want to be associated with posts and videos that are in poor taste. That's why monitoring the comments, followers, and stories is the best way for now.

If you don't like the sound of the above, you may want to nip the issue in the bud by making your profile private. We know that's not a solution, but until the time Instagram makes such options available, this seems to be a viable option.
