Tags and mentions allow you to place the username above the post you want to share. But if you mention a user , the publication will not appear on their profile , nor will they be identified within the publication.

How can I make an invisible tag on Instagram?

Instagram has many tricks that allow you to tag the people you want in a post or story, without these tags being visible.

cover the label

This method is very easy, you just have to place the label and place a sticker or a GIF on top, in this way the people who view your publication or story will not know that there is a label.

Move the label off the screen

A simple, but effective method is to hide the tag in a border by dragging it off the screen and making the tag invisible to whomever the post or story is.

Make a camouflage with the colors

Another method is to camouflage your label using the same color as the background of your story or post so that any label you want to place will be invisible.

How to check that I correctly tagged a person?

To make sure you have tagged correctly you can open the post or story and click where the tag is, if it redirects you to that user’s profile it is because you have tagged correctly.

Can a person be tagged in a story once it’s posted?

As we already know, you can tag any of your users before publishing your stories. However, you should know that you cannot tag a person in a story after it has been published . So I advise you to make sure you tag the ones you want before you post your story on Instagram.
