So, you follow a friend who is supremely annoying on Instagram. Don’t worry. You have options.

You might be thinking an unfollow is in order. Maybe you’re a little more savvy and are thinking of so-called “soft-blocking” them.

Careful, though. If you’re trying to preserve the real-world friendship, blocking or unfollowing of any kind can be interpreted as an act of hostility. What you could instead do is simply mute their account. There are a couple ways to do this on the Instagram mobile app.

And, of course, if you decide to end you’ve had a sufficient cringe detox, you can always unmute the person.

Here is how to mute and unmute them on Instagram.
