To hide the music sticker on your Instagram story, follow these steps:
1. Open the Instagram app on your mobile device and tap on the camera icon in the top-left corner to create a new story.
2. Take a photo or video, or choose one from your gallery, and tap on the sticker icon at the top of the screen (it looks like a square smiley face).
3. Scroll through the available stickers until you find the music sticker (it has a music note icon) and tap on it to add it to your story.
4. Once added, you will see various options for selecting a song or sound. To hide the music sticker, simply swipe left or right until you reach the end of the song library without selecting any track.
5. The music sticker will disappear from your story, allowing you to share it without any background music.
Note: This method may vary slightly depending on your device and Instagram app version.
