Hey guys,

I am sure you know this, but Instagram offers users a feature to make their accounts and content visible to a limited number of people. If you want to share your content with only your followers, you should switch to a private Instagram account. With an open account, anyone can see your posts and, in some cases, use your posts to steal your identity.

Follow these steps to switch your Instagram account to private:

  • Open Instagram
  • Tap the Profile icon in the bottom right corner of your screen.
  • Tap the three horizontal lines in the top right corner of your profile to open a menu.
  • Select Settings.
  • Scroll until you see Privacy.
  • Under the Account Privacy section, toggle the Private Account tab to turn it on.

Note: Once your account is private, people not already on your Followers list won’t be able to see your Instagram posts.

Let me know if you need help with this or anything else.

All the best,

Max
