The popularity of Instagram Reels is known to everyone. From Gen z to millennials to those falling in the senior category, the craze for Reels is only expanding. However, if you are someone who never liked TikTok, there is a high possibility of you not liking Reels either. Just so you know, TikTok was banned earlier in 2020 (June 29) over national security issues. Since then, a bunch of apps jumped in to replace the video app making Instagram Reels the most prominent one. Here we will share with you steps you can follow to disable Reels from your Instagram timeline.
