I have used polygon grid layer on my map, and I used to label the layer with ID automatically, and the result was convenient for me:

But when I zoomed out, the labels didn't hide at all! and they keep appearing in frustrating way!

I would like to get the result when I zooming out like this:

Just set the layer's labels to be visible depending on desired scales, like below:
