How to block abusive and offensive comments on Instagram

Instagram is the popular photo filters and sharing app. Now, it has been used by more than millions of users including celebrities and actors across the globe. But, trolls are everywhere and these trolls become abusive sometimes. Yes, you can delete comments but think about popular accounts with millions of followers. They get thousands of comments in seconds. So, monitoring and deleting abusive comments is not feasible.

To make it easier, you have the option to hide inappropriate comments automatically. So, you can easily handle trolls. This option lets you select few offensive or abusive words. Whenever a user uses any of these words in comments, the comment will not be visible in your photo.

How to block abusive and offensive comments on Instagram
