Instagram is a top-notch photo and video sharing app. There are plenty of filters to give your favorite photo a hot look. Whenever I snap a stunning pic or capture an exciting video, I blast it out on this social networking app. Getting hearts, comments from my friends and loved ones as appreciation make me feel really cool just like you all.

However, at times some unacceptable comments from Instagram users make me really bad. That’s the reason why I have enabled Private Account (Profile icon → Settings → Private account) to allow only my existing followers to view my photos.

That’s it! Later, if you happened to change your mind, toggle the switch next to “Hide Inappropriate Comments.”
