Some Instagram users are noticing a new feature that enables the archiving of old posts, removing them from public view without going so far as to delete them. The company has confirmed this feature's existence to TechCrunch, explaining that the new archival option enables Instagrammers to view - and, if desired, restore - their old posts whenever they'd like.

Users with access to the feature, which is currently in testing and only available on a limited basis, can find it by tapping the '...' menu button on an Instagram post. Doing so reveals an 'Archive' option; tapping this removes the image from public view. To view archived posts, users can tap a small clock icon located in the upper right corner of their profile page. Instagram plans to expand the feature's availability 'over the next few months.'
