How to Block Account on Instagram

Simple process, yet important to know. As it is a social media platform, it is necessary to keep your privacy intact. Experiencing any abuse from a specific account, the Instagrammer can simply block it. Blocking is referred to as stopping the follower to make a comment on your post(s). No interaction happens.

To do so,

  1. Start the app.
  2. Go to the account you intend to block. 
  3. Tap the 3-vertical dot icon to view account options.
  4. There is an option/action – Block. Tap/press it.
  5. The account is listed in your Privacy Settings – Blocked Accounts list.
  6. Here you go! Got rid of unwanted comments from the contact.

How to Restrict Account on Instagram

Restricting an account on Instagram is referred to as less strict from blocking an account. The contact sends the comments and posts, but if the Instagrammer has restricted the contact, will not be shown on his/her wall. The opposite contact will not come to know and will not feel offended.

To restrict the account:

  1. Start the app.
  2. Go to the account you intend to restrict.
  3. Tap the 3-vertical dot icon to view account options.
  4. There is an option / action – Restrict. Tap / press it.
  5. The account is listed in your Privacy Settings – Restricted Accounts list.
