Here's how to Remove Tag from Instagram Reels

Like Facebook as well as Twitter Users can tag people on Instagram reels prior to or after they post the reel. Tags can help you boost the reach and the engagement of your reels with any effort. You can tag anyone, like a friend or individual, an brand, influencer, or a business. However, it’s generally recommended to only tag those who contribute to or have a connection with your own reels.

Maybe, some users are able to randomly tag an unidentified or unrelated person on their reels as Instagram allows you to tag anyone with no prior approval. However, you can take your tag off the reel if you do not wish to be included on the reel. In the meantime, you can activate the option to manually approve tags to ensure that the reels which you’re tagged on aren’t automatically displayed in your account.

Have you been tagged by someone on their reel, but you’d like to remove yourself from the reel? Don’t worry, here’s how you can untag yourself off reels in Instagram.
