How to mute or turn off notes on Instagram?

Instagram notes are sticky notes visible on your profile in the Chat section. It has a limit of 80 characters. Notes are left for 24 hours, and you can replace your note whenever you want. 

There’s no way to turn off notes altogether from Settings. But you can get rid of notes from individual profiles in some ways. 

For example, you won’t see notes using Instagram lite or Instagram PC. Also, notes aren’t rolled out on every platform or version of the Instagram app. It’s only available on the latest version of Instagram.

Use Instagram Lite

There are two versions of Instagram on the Play Store/App Store. One is Instagram; another is Instagram lite. It’s a lightweight app with minimum features for those who don’t have a strong internet connection or storage on their device. 

The notes feature is not available on Instagram lite. So, if you use Instagram lite, you won’t see any notes.
