Adam Mosseri, head of the Instagram platform, announced on Threads that the company is working on expanding mute filters to cover larger parts of the application more than ever before.

This feature is called “Hidden Words” and has been implemented so far only on posts directed to you, so you can simply ignore specific words or phrases from appearing in your replies.

Starting today, the feature has been expanded to include your stories, searches, personal files, and replies you see within other posts.

Hidden words are just a mute filter. Add a word, phrase, or even an emoji to the list, and the app will hide any post containing that word or phrase.

In addition to allowing you to manage a custom list, the app also automatically filters out posts containing specific words, although you can disable this behavior from the settings.

Mosseri also revealed that the company is working on more supervision tools. Users will soon be able to specify who can quote them, which could go a long way in reducing unwanted attention and harassment. You will also be able to ignore notifications on your posts, so you can still receive other notifications except those coming from the posts you specify.

The expanded Hidden Words feature is now available to all users.
