Instagram has had a tough time battling it out with Snapchat over the last few years, however, it seems the tide has finally turned in Instagrams favor, with hundreds of thousands of Snapchat users flocking to the service recently. Although most of this user traffic was generated after Snapchats gross misjudgment of the Stories update, Instagram has managed to retain a good portion of these users long term. Even after Snapchat started making changes to their failed update, rolling back to familiar stories layout.

This is most likely due to the fact that the Instagram development team has been working hard creating new features and fine-tuning some of Instagrams old favorites. One of the most requested features and also the most overdue is the ability for users to remove followers from their standard accounts, just like users who hold private accounts can do. If you’ve never held a private account before and would like to find out how to remove followers from your standard Instagram, continue reading below.

Note: If you are using a private Instagram account, you will already have this feature active regardless of your Instagram version so you won’t need to update, you can start using the feature straight away.

How Do You Remove Followers From a Standard Instagram Account?

Before we begin, it’s important to note that this feature hasn’t been released globally yet and is currently in rollout phase, which means you may need to wait a few weeks to get access. Unfortunately, there also isn’t a way to find out which areas have access and which don’t, so you’ll need to check from time to see if it's working.  

To begin, make sure you have the latest version of Instagram installed on your device, then open Instagram and go to your Profile Page. Once you are on your profile page tap Followers, then find the person you wish to stop following you. Next, tap the three dots to the right of the follow/following icon and tap Remove.
