The plugin has several options that allows you to hide post on different type of pages and / or archives as well from RSS Feed and REST API.
You can hide your post on the front page (static or default), you can hide it on the categories page (this hides it on all categories, not on a specific). You can also hide it from search results showing on the search page.
Another options are to hide the post on tags, authors page and the blog page ( as selected in Settings -> Reading )
