How to Save a Post in Instagram

  • Then open the Instagram app.

  • When you come across a photo you want to save, tap the bookmark icon.

  • To view your saved posts, visit your profile and tap the bookmark icon.

Unlike the posts you like, only you can see the posts you’ve saved. If you decide to remove an Instagram post from your Saved list, simply tap on the image and deselect the bookmark icon.
