Have you ever wanted to unfollow someone you know on Instagram, but didn't want to offend them? Well now, there's a new feature on IG that lets you do just that.

Instagram has announced a new way to mute accounts. This way, you can follow any account with seeing their posts.

Introduced on Tuesday (May 22), the feature allows users to mute accounts without the muted account knowing. And, you can unmute them at any time.

All you have to do is tap "..." in the corner of the post and choose between muting posts, stories, or posts and stories.

Muting essentially allows someone to block an account, without upsetting someone by blocking them outright.

Have an argument with someone or a breakup and don't want to see their posts, mute is an easy option.
