instagram update disable comments
Instagram announced three new features on Tuesday giving Instagram users more control over their accounts and how they interact with others on the service. Instagram

Instagram is taking more steps to make the app a safer and more comfortable place for users with a new update along with an event designed to “spread kindness."

Thursday the company introduced users to some new safety features Instagram will have soon. There will be a “sensitive content” screen over posts that have been reporter by users and deemed sensitive by Instagram’s team. The screen can easily be removed by tapping on the post revealing the photo or video behind it. The goal is to help users avoid exposure to surprising or unwanted content.

Two-step verification is also now active on the app. To increase security, you can set your account to require not only a password but also a second code to successfully log in.

How To Turn On Instagram Two-Step Authentication:

You can turn this feature on or off by going to your profile in the app and selecting the gear icon in the upper right hand corner. Once there select “two-factor authentication” and toggle it on or off. When this is on, Instagram will send you a code each time you attempt to log in that will you will need to input to access your account.

In September the co-founders of the photo-sharing social media platform made an announcement that they would be rolling out new safety features, starting with a “key word moderation” commenting feature that allowed users to choose certain words to keep out of the comments on their posts.

“My commitment to you is that we will keep building features that safeguard the community and maintain what makes Instagram a positive and creative place for everyone,” Kevin Systrom, CEO, wrote to users in a post.

Thursday Systrom made good on that promise by announcing Worldwide InstaMeet 15, an event that will span the weekend of March 25 and 26 to “spread kindness.” Whether users can make it to an InstaMeet event, they can leave kind comments on posts from other users to make the app a kinder more friendly place, the statement said.
