It’s true, the content we explore or share on Instagram may not always be appropriate and some of our followers could find it upsetting or downright, offensive. For this reason, the new Sensitive content control Instagram setting allows you to set limits for potentially sensitive content you would like to explore.
Manage your sensitive content control Instagram standards?
Instagram already has Recommendation Guidelines in place that spell out various rules and processes to protect users from offensive content. The new sensitive content control Instagram filter, however, gives people more choice over what they see.
- Log in your Instagram account.
- Tap your profile icon.
- Select Menu.
- Choose Settings.
- Go to Account.
- Scroll down to Limit Sensitive Content entry.
- Choose the desired option.
What is Instagram sensitive content control?
It’s a filter that lets you choose to see more or less sensitive content from people or accounts you do not follow. So, depending on your settings, you’ll be able to see more or less of certain types of posts.
How to allow sensitive content control on Instagram
Login to your Instagram account and go to your profile. For this, tap the Profile icon at the bottom of the app screen.
Select the Menu (3 Horizontal bars) option visible under your profile screen.
Then, choose Settings to move to Accounts.
Under Accounts section, scroll down to locate the Limit Sensitive Content entry.
When found, tap it to go to the new screen. Select the desired setting. The options available are,
- Limit – This is the default option that allows you to see only few photos and videos that could be offensive or upsetting.
- Limit Even More – Displays fewer photos and videos, deemed ‘inappropriate’.
To adjust your standards, choose any one of the above options to find the relative content being filtered out from your Explore page. Bear in mind, the option you choose will have no impact on what you see in your Direct Messages.
How do you get the filter off sensitive content on Instagram??
Some content on Instagram has sensitive content that people complain about and don’t want to see. For this, they can limit the types of posts they see. However, it has one shortfall – it limits the reach of the content that creators want their followers to see. So, if you don’t mind seeing a few potentially upsetting public posts, disable the Sensitive content control filter to ensure the posts get through.
Go to Settings > select Account again > scroll down to the Sensitive content control section. Here, un-check the Limit Even More option.
That’s all about how to configure and use the Sensitive Content Control Instagram setting
Hope it makes sense!
