Instagram’s new sensitivity controls will filter what you see on your feed

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Facebook recently introduced the new Sensitivity Content Control for Instagram. The added setting gives you control whether or not you want to allow sensitive, upsetting, or offensive content on your feed.

The new setting is now live, if not, just update the Instagram app on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

Sensitivity Content Control has three levels: Allow (which doesn’t filter sensitive content), Limit (the default setting where you may see some sensitive content), and Limit Even More (which allows fewer upsetting or offensive content). Take note that the Allow option is not available to people under 18 years of age.

Instagram defines sensitive content as posts that don’t necessarily break their rules, but could potentially be upsetting to some people — such as posts that may be sexually suggestive or violent.
