Why Are “Posts You’ve Liked” Not Showing On Instagram?

The reason you cannot see this option any longer is that Instagram has changed the location of the liked folder on the app.

And they did so without prior communication with users, which caused mass hysteria that the option has disappeared.

How To Fix “Posts You’ve Liked” Not Showing On Instagram

Since we know Instagram didn’t remove the feature from the app and only move it to another location. You’ll be able to see the previous post you liked.

Step 1: Open Instagram

Open the Instagram app on your device and log in to access your account.

On your homepage, tap on the profile icon which is located at the right-hand bottom corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap Menu Icon

Select the menu icon which is the three horizontal lines at the top right corner. On the list of options that come up, select the second one, which is Your activity.

Step 3: Tap Interaction

On the page that appears, tap on the Interactions options. This option will allow you to review and delete your likes, comments, and other interactions you make on Instagram.

Step 4: Open Likes

Select Likes and this will allow you to see all the posts you have ever liked on Instagram. By default, they are sorted from the newest to the oldest.

How To Save Instagram Posts Without Liking Them

If you don’t want to like a post so that the person won’t know you’ve done so and you want to save it, here’s how to go about it.

Step 1: Open Instagram

Open Instagram on your mobile device and log in to gain access to your account.

Step 2: Find The Post

Scroll or search for desired posts and tap on the Bookmark logo.

Then select Save to save to collection and choose a name for the Collection and Save it

This method is suitable for saving posts of the same kind so that you do not lose them when you need to refer to them in the future.

You can see all your saved posts using the Saved option which can be found under the Menu Settings.


The posts you’ve liked option has not been deleted from Instagram, just that the location has been changed.

All you need to do is follow the steps above but you can only do this with the Instagram app and not the web version.
