Instagram is a well-known social media application that allows users to share photos and videos with friends, family, and others across borders. The photo or video that a user uploads to Instagram is displayed on their profile, where any of their followers can leave comments. If you’re an Instagram user and come across a comment on one of your posts that contains spam or abusive content, you can report it or disable it.
Instagram automatically filters out inappropriate, offensive, or bullying comments from posts, stories, and live videos by default. However, you can always change this setting and make your posts comment-free.
Unfortunately, there is no way to turn off comments across the board; you must disable them individually for each post. However, keep in mind that if you disable commenting, any current comments on your post will be hidden.
Are you aware of how to disable Instagram comments? To turn comments on or off for Instagram posts, follow this step-by-step guide.
How to enable or disable comments on Instagram posts
To turn commenting off or on for a post you’ve shared, follow the steps below:
Step 2: To disable comments, open that specific post.
Step 3: Above your post, tap three dots (Menu).
Step 4: Select Turn Off Commenting from the drop-down menu.
You can turn off and on comments by following the steps outlined above. If you change your mind and turn commenting back on for a post, all previous comments will be restored, and people will be able to comment once more.
Before you share a post, you can even disable commenting. Tap Advanced Settings, then Turn Off Commenting on the screen where you add a caption or location to your post.
