By the time you’re at the end of the guide, you should find your way around it.

Read further through this guide to understand better.

In this guide, I will explain briefly why you can’t see the hide like option on your account and how to solve this error on your Instagram account.

Read through to the end, and make sure to take all of the points.

Why you can’t see the hide like count option

Various factors are responsible for these issues and will prevent you from seeing the hide like option on your account.

Few of them I will discuss In this guide below to help you understand why you might be having this problem.

1. Your Instagram app cache is full

Your Instagram app cache is the amount of space your Instagram account occupies on your device (PC or phone) to enable bit function properly.

The space given to the app is small and should be cleared occasionally.

This will let the app function without fault. The hide like count on Instagram might be missing because of this.

2. Running multiple accounts on your Instagram page

Using your Instagram page to run multiple accounts is stress-free and makes managing your (business/ personal) account easy.

But in most cases, one account tends to suffer while the other gets all the attention and engagement.

The account you tend to visit less starts misbehaving.

In the process, you lose some features on that account, including the Instagram hide likes count option.

How to get your Instagram hide likes count features back

Now, it’s time to discuss the ways you can solve hide like count on Instagram not working.

1. Delete and reinstall the app

The best way to restore missing features or make some features work on Instagram is by deleting and reinstalling the app.

This process will help the app refresh properly, not just that most of the drafts stored temporarily in the app will be deleted (this will not affect your data), relieving some of its load.

And most importantly, the new version of the app will be reinstalled. So this method will boost the efficiency of most features on the platform (Instagram).

2. Log out of your other account

As I have stated above, running two accounts on one Instagram page has a way of reducing the efficiency of one of the accounts.

You have to log out of one of your accounts, probably the account you don’t have that problem with, and try to refresh the one with the hide like count problem.

Then try to see if the problem has been rectified.

To log out of one of your accounts on Instagram;

  • Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  • Then click on the top right, then tap Settings. Scroll to the bottom,
  • Choose the account you want to log out of.
  • Then tap log out.

3. Use Instagram through a web browser

Most users prefer to use Instagram on its mobile app because it is easier to operate.

But you might need to learn that using Instagram on the mobile app is more vulnerable to a glitch that will not make some features work correctly.

The web browser is also more secure and has a minimal chance of experiencing a glitch.

Since you are faced with the hide like count missing challenge, switch to the web browser. The feature might be working perfectly on it.

4. Report to Instagram

You will likely not result in this method if you have gone through the other methods.

But if those methods above are still not giving a positive result on this issue, then you should complain to Instagram about your problem.

To report a problem on Instagram;

  • Tap your profile picture in the bottom right to go to your profile.
  • Click on the top right, then tap Settings.
  • Click Help, then tap Report a Problem.
  • Explain the problem and click submit.

Final Thought

Going through this guide, you must have observed why the hide like count option is not working or must have gone missing from your account, with the reason I gave you above.

If you have followed through, the solution to this problem won’t be an issue for you any longer, as I have given various methods you can apply to fix this.
