How to Hide Inappropriate Comments in Instagram on iPhone or iPad

No longer want to bear with the unacceptable comments in Instagram; you can hide inappropriate comments on your iPhone or iPad.

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.
