Instagram has also announce that it is introducing new protection measures to make teenagers’ social media experience safer.
Instagram is defaulting new users under the age of 16 into private accounts.
A private account lets only people who follow you see posts, Stories, and Reels.
Random users can’t even comment on their content and posted content cannot be seen in sections like Explore and hashtag.
For a public account on Instagram it will show them a notification highlighting the benefits of a private account and explaining how to change their privacy settings.
All of these changes make it harder for potentially suspicious accounts to find young people and limits the options for advertisers to target young people.
