Are you sick of the spam comments on your Instagram posts? We are too. As many of you may have noticed, there has been a great deal of annoying and unwanted comments on Instagram recently. While Instagram is working on preventing this issue themselves, they have also given you ways to take matters into your own hands! There are a few things you can do in your settings to help restrict these comments, and we’ll show you how!
Report Spam Accounts
Instagram allows you to report accounts that are considered spam. This is a good way for you to notify Instagram of the problem, and they may ban them from using the account–and therefore ban them from spamming you and other users. This helps Instagram become aware of spam, and take action.
Block users that are commenting spam on your posts
Although it seems like an obvious solution, blocking users that spam your account will prevent them from commenting on your page all together. We find that more often than not, the same spam users are commenting on posts over and over again, so by blocking a few accounts, it can help with this issue significantly.
Turn on “Hide Offensive Comments” in your settings
This is a quick and easy method to naturally filter out some offensive and unwanted comments on your page. Although it probably won’t resolve your problem all together, it will still help restrict some of the spam from coming in on your Instagram.
Customize your hidden words list
With a lot of spam comments, we tend to see the same words or phrases. By hiding certain words from your comments, you don’t have to worry about them showing up on your page! You are able to add multiple words to this list in order to reduce the number of unwanted comments on your posts.
We know and understand that this seems like a lot of continual work, but we promise that it works! Start taking the time today to put a stop to the pesky spam comments. If you need help, please do not hesitate to reach out to us! We are TRULY here to help and guide you through the process.
