  • Blocked Users

You can see the list of all the users that you have blocked for any reason in this part, so that you can get them out of this situation in the future and if necessary.

  • Private Accounts

You enable this option when you want to make your account private. Normally, all the posts and videos you upload to Instagram, and even the list of people you have followed, can be displayed to all Instagram users, and anyone can follow you freely.

But by privatizing your account, everyone needs your approval to follow you, and they will not be able to see your posts until then.

If someone likes, comments, or follows you on your photo or comment, ‌ Instagram will send you a notification to let you know.

By entering this section, you can have control over these items separately and turn off items that you do not want to be sent a notification to you.

  • Cellular Data Use

By selecting this option, you can slightly decrease the volume of your Instagram consumption.

(Use less data) I recommend that you do not select the Use less data option as much as possible, as you may see more time to load and even lower quality loaded photos.

  • Comments

Instagram allows you to completely close comments for your Instagram posts, and no one can comment on your post if needed. If you do not want to close the comments completely, you can use the comments filter feature.

Manual Filter

In this section, you can choose specific words so that if a comment contains those words, it will be automatically censored and not displayed to you and other users.

For example, by filtering out some vulgar, racist, political, etc. words, you can have a cleaner and calmer atmosphere in your comments.

  • Save Original
  • Photo Saving Video After posting

By turning on these two options, set your Instagram so that after sending a photo or video, a copy of them will be saved in your phone’s gallery.

If these two options are off, the posts you record via Instagram’s built-in camera (raw version) will not be saved on your phone.
