In this article you can read how you can unfollow people you follow on Instagram. This can be done on a PC or from your smartphone. Unfortunately, there is no pre-programmed way in Instagram that allows you to unfollow everyone at once. You can also only follow or unfollow a limited number of people per hour within Instagram. If you unfollow a large number of people in a short time, your account may be temporarily blocked.
Method 1 of 2: Unfollow people on an iPhone or a phone with Android
Step #1. Open Instagram
To do this, tap the colorful icon in the shape of a camera. If you're already signed in to Instagram, you'll be taken directly to the home page.
- If you haven't logged in to Instagram before, enter your username (or phone number) and password and tap To register.
Step 2. Tap on your profile icon
You'll find it at the very bottom right of the screen.
Step #3. Now tap on 'next'
You'll find this section almost at the top right of the screen. You will then see a list of all the people you are currently following.
Above this list is a number. This number represents the number of people you are currently following
Step #4. Tap Next next to a person's name
You should see this button to the right of every person you follow.
Step 5. Tap on Unfollow when prompted
This option appears in a pop-up window. That way you will unfollow the chosen person.
Step 6. Repeat this unfollow procedure for every person you follow
When you're done, there should be no one left under the heading 'next'.
With some Instagram accounts-especially if you have a newer account-you'll have to wait about an hour after unfollowing 200 people before continuing
Method 2 of 2: Unfollow people on a computer running Windows or on a Mac
Step #1. Go to Instagram's website
To do this, go to https://www.instagram.com/. If you are already logged in to Instagram on your computer, you will automatically end up on your news feed or the main page.
If you haven't signed up before, you'll first need to enter your username (or phone number) and password to log into your account
Step 2. Click on the icon of your profile
It's the little doll icon in the top right corner of the main Instagram page. This will take you to your personal page.
Step 3. Click on the heading 'next'
You'll find it at the bottom right of your username, which is at the top of your account page. You will then see a list of the people you are currently following.
Before the heading 'next' is a number. This number represents the number of people you follow
Step #4. Click the Next button to the right of an account name
You then unfollow that person; if all is well you will see a blue button appear with the word To follow on it, in the place where the button Next was standing.
Step 5. Repeat this unfollowing procedure for every account you are currently following
When you're done, there should be no one under 'next' anymore.
