When you archive a post on Instagram, it means that the post is no longer visible on your profile.

However, the post will not be deleted and you can view it at any time by going to your archive. You can also choose to unarchive the post, which will show the post again on your profile.

If you’re active on Instagram, chances are you’ve had to hide a photo from your feed just because it didn’t fit into your carefully curated feed. But just because a photo doesn’t fit in your feed doesn’t mean you don’t want to keep it.

The archive feature allows you to hide these posts without having to delete them. This can be useful if you want to keep the post for emotional reasons.
