Here you will learn how you can change Instagram’s Sensitive Content Control settings and configure how much offensive or upsetting content is served to you.
Instagram is giving more control to its users by introducing a new feature called Sensitive Content Control. This new feature will make Instagram’s platform more safe by allowing users to choose the amount of sensitive content they are shown on the app.
Users can choose between three levels of sensitive content. This includes Allow, Limit and Limit Even More. The Limit option, which shows some upsetting and sensitive photos and videos is set as default.
If the user opts for the Allow option, then they will be shown all upsetting or offensive photos that they come across on the platform.
On the other hand if they choose Limit Even More option, then they are shown fewer photos and videos that may be deemed upsetting or offensive.
