Home / News & media website / Mobile / Instagram To Limit Who You Can Direct Message


Instagram is changing the way how their messaging system works in the app. Soon, you are going to be limited to who you can send a direct message to.

Instagram has taken a new approach to help keep its social network as safe as possible by improving its systems with a new feature. Soon, it will be able to detect suspicious activity, such as if one account (user over the age of 18) is consistently messaging underage users, and will prevent them from messaging anyone under the age of 18 – unless they follow you already.

Instagram will also release a new feature for underage users to have the ability to instantly report or block accounts directly from the instant messaging system. They will receive warnings and information about safety, such as reminders about not to feel pressured to respond to messages, to be careful sharing photos, videos and other information with someone they don't know.

Instagram and Facebook have revealed that this new feature will be available in some countries from the end of March 2021, and soon thereafter to other countries worldwide.
