Allow unknown sources to install the app and sign in with your Instagram account and start using the app. If you found any suspicious, delete the app from your smartphone and reset your smartphone.
Using old versions of Instagram
Instagram added reels in late 2020. I am not sure about the exact version of the app. But I have found a Version that had no reels feature built-in. You can install the app by visiting this link and log in. After successful login, you will be able to use the Instagram app on your smartphone without reels. Keep in mind that you need to Prevent Instagram from Updating by turning of auto-update on Google Play Store.
On iOS it is hard to install older versions of the app. You need to jailbreak your iPhone. It is definitely not recommended by us. Instead, you can use Instagram on your browser to get rid of reels.
Can You Hide Reels From Your Main Profile?
Can you hide reels on Instagram? The answer is yes. You can either create a private account for your reels, or you can use a third-party app to do so. Instagram allows you to hide reels for a specific amount of time, so you should set a limit on how long they remain hidden before they get removed. Luckily, Instagram allows you to choose who sees your reels, so you can choose the audience that you want to hide.
After you choose an audience, you can select the number of people you want to see your reels. The default audience is “all,” but if you change it to “close friends,” your other reels will be muted. If you don’t want to share your reels with strangers, you can choose to share them with a small group of people or with just me. Just be sure to select a specific audience, or else they won’t show up.
