How to archive Instagram posts

Instagram has recently released an archival feature, called Archive for your old photos and videos that you don’t want to remove completely. This feature will let you move the selected posts into a space that only you can see them. These posts are not deleted permanently, they are moved to a private place and will not appear on your profile so no one can see them.

However, this feature in the latest update of Instagram just works with iOS version 10.2.1 or higher, so make sure you’ve updated your device. Here is how to archive your Instagram posts
