You need to go to Instagram Settings > Story Controls > Hide story from. Deselect Everyone. That’s how you can add Stories to Highlights without anyone seeing them.
Can you add to Instagram highlights without posting?
If you are using a smartphone to publish on Instagram, and you are going to add galley photos to the highlights of Instagram, it is possible. However, if you don’t want others to see your stories, but they see your highlights, you should know that you cannot add to highlights without adding to stories.
Can you add highlights without adding to your story?
The only reason why you couldn’t add a story to your Instagram Highlights is if you don’t wait the 24 hours you needed after posting the video. If you deleted the video before the 24-hour mark, you wouldn’t be able to add the story to your Highlights section.
Can you edit the order of highlights?
There’s no direct feature within Instagram to re-order your Instagram Highlights, but there is a hack to get the job done! While experimenting, I found out that the Highlight that will move to the beginning of your list is the last edited one. “Edited” is defined as adding an Instagram Story to the Highlight.
Can you make Instagram highlights private?
Unfortunately there is no option for hiding the highlights from your followers or anyone who views your Instagram highlights. If you don’t want the users to see your highlights on your profile, you can delete the highlight or block the user that you don’t want to share the story with.
How do you customize your highlights on Instagram?
Instead, you can just edit the highlight directly:
- Go to your Instagram profile.
- Tap the highlight whose cover you’d like to change.
- Tap More in the bottom right corner.
- Tap Edit Highlight.
- Tap Edit Cover.
- Choose the image icon to access your phone’s photo library.
- Choose your beautiful cover.
