One of the most important feature of Instagram is the commenting. But sometimes this feature make us feel embarrassed. In the friend list of all of us, definitely there would be a guy who makes some weird comments. But we can not block that guy because of some reason, so what is the solution for this issue. This article will let you know how to stop users from commenting on Instagram posts without blocking them.
Steps: How to stop users from commenting on Instagram posts without blocking them
There’s a simple way. Although it is not possible to turn off comments everywhere, you can at least block select users from commenting on each of your posts without blocking them on the platform. Here’s how to stop users from commenting on Instagram posts without blocking them.
Step 1: Open Instagram and tap on your profile picture to open the main profile page.
Step 2: Tap on the gear icon or the three-dot icon on the top right to access the Settings page.
Step 3: Scroll down and tap on ‘Comments’ under the ‘Settings’ section.
Step 4: Under ‘Comments Controls’ tap on ‘Allow Comments From’
Step 5: By default this is selected as ‘Everyone’ but you can mention specific users who you want to comment in posts.
Step 6: What can be simpler however, is to go for the ‘Block Comments From’ option and select users you don’t want to comment in posts.
This does not mean that blocked users will be able to view the post but not comment. Doing this will certainly raise some questions. Instagram says that blocking users from commenting (not from the account altogether) will simply hide that particular post from them. You can also block specific comments (not users) from the post by providing Instagram certain keyword filters.
