Do you want to change or remove the category label on Instagram? This is possible, but it is not always easy. In this article, we will show you how to do it.
A category label is a way to organize your posts on Instagram. You can assign a category to each post, and then view all the posts in that category. This can be useful if you want to group similar posts together.

How To Change Or Remove Category Label On Instagram?
Changing or removing the category labels on Instagram is not always easy. In some cases, you may need to edit the code for your website. However, we will show you two methods that should work for most people.
Method One: Changing Category Label In Instagram App
The first method is to change the category label in the Instagram app. This is the easiest method, but it only allows you to change the category for all of your posts at once.
1. Open the Instagram app and go to your profile.
2. Tap on the three lines in the top left corner of the screen.
3. Tap on “Settings”.
4. Tap on “Posts”.
5. Tap on “Categories”.
6. Tap on the category you want to change.
7. Tap on “Change Category”.
8. Enter the new category name and tap on “Done”.
Method Two: Removing Category Label In Instagram App
The second method is to remove the category label in the Instagram app. This is a bit more complicated, but it allows you to change or remove the category for individual posts.
1. Open the Instagram app and go to the post you want to edit.
2. Tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.
3. Tap on “Edit”.
4. Tap on “Category”.
5. Tap on one of the category names to remove it from your post. Or if you want to add a new category, tap on “Add New Category” and enter the name for that category
6. When you are finished editing your post, tap on “Done Editing”.
Note: This method will only work for posts that are less than 24-hours old because they are still editable in Instagram’s app. If you want to change or remove older posts’ categories, use Method One instead.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q. Will removing the category label from my Instagram posts get rid of the category labels on all of my other photos?
A. No, this will only remove the category label on that post. The categories for your other posts will remain intact.
Q. I’m trying to remove a category label for a post that is more than 24 hours old, but it won’t let me do it. How come?
A. The Instagram app will only allow you to remove or change your posts’ categories within the first 24 hours after you posted the photo. After the first 24 hours, those posts will be locked and can no longer be edited in Instagram’s app. If you want to remove or change those posts’ category labels, use Method One instead.
Q. I’m trying to add a new category, but it’s not letting me do it. How come?
A. When you are adding a new category, make sure the name you enter is spelt correctly and matches the name of an existing category on Instagram. If you enter a name that doesn’t exist, your post will be assigned to the “Unknown” category.
Q. I want to change the category for all my posts at once, but Instagram only lets me change them one at a time. Is there any way to do it all at once?
A. Yes, there is a way to do this. However, it is a bit more complicated. First, you need to export all of your posts as a CSV file. Then you need to open each post in a text editor, remove the old category name, and add the new one.
After you are finished editing all of your posts, you can import them back to Instagram.
Q. How come changing or removing my Instagram categories doesn’t affect any other social media networks?
A. Most social media sites don’t automatically sync their categories across different networks, but there is usually an option to manually transfer them over from one site to another.
The only exception for this rule seems to be Pinterest because its categories are integrated into many other social media sites (e.g., Tumblr) without requiring any extra steps.
Changing or removing your Instagram categories can be a bit complicated, but it’s worth taking the time to do it correctly. This will help you keep your posts organized and make it easier for people to find the content they are looking for.
