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.

How to Hide Inappropriate Comments in Instagram on iPhone or iPad

Taking a firm stance on harassment comments, Instagram has rolled out a new anti-harassment tool, which is available for both iOS and Android app. Here is how it works:

How to Filter Offensive and Inappropriate Comments in Instagram on iPhone/iPad

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

The 9.3 version also features an enhancement for Stories to let you add color to your text by just swiping the colors above the keyboard. You can also tap and hold a circle to select a custom color.

We have made a special post let you get the best out of Instagram on your iPhone. Make sure to check it out.
