Do hashtags on Instagram work if your profile is set to private?

. 4 min read

You set your Instagram private and wondering if hashtags work, right?

The answer is Yes, but limited!

Why don't hashtags work efficiently for your private profile?

If you set your Instagram private, your hashtags will appear on a specific hashtag page. However, when people want to see your post by following these hashtags, they won't because your profile is private!

Surely people who follow you can see your posts with hashtags.

So, yes, hashtags work if your profile is set to private but it is limited. Only people allowed can see your posts and profile.

You are not the only one who is asking this question. People are looking for answers on open forums. This is an example from Quora:

Hashtags are important parts of a successful Instagram strategy and you should be careful about finding relevant hashtags.

But it is common to have problems with hashtags. For example, some users can't use hashtags in their Instagram comments.

If Instagram doesn't let you use hashtags in comments, these could be the reasons:

  • Instagram flagged your account
  • You overuse irrelevant hashtags on your posts
  • Avoid using banned Instagram hashtags
  • Do not use the same hashtags again and again
  • Too broad hashtags
  • Too competitive hashtags
  • Using too many hashtags
  • Technical issues

If you don't have any problems with hashtags, they can grow your reach on Instagram and boost your engagement when used wisely.

The first step to using hashtags for Instagram growth is to find the best, relevant hashtags.

We are not experts in each niche and topic. So we can't know which hashtags are relevant for specific content.

That's why we should use an Instagram Hashtag Generator to find trending, popular hashtags that will attract people on social media.

The best Instagram tag finder is Circleboom Publish's AI-Powered Instagram Hashtag Generator!
