Instagram is a large social media platform where you can find almost everyone: even your neighbor’s cat. Most users on Instagram are more focused on dodging the family they already have there and, instead, making online friends. And there’s nothing wrong with that; after all, what other place to socialize than social media?
But it’s also important to note that one can never be too careful when operating on the internet. There are all kinds of people there with unimaginable intentions. Although the people you’re talking to might be just teenagers looking to make new friends, there’s no completely accurate way to determine if they’re being truthful.
We aren’t asking you to give up talking to people on Instagram if that’s what you’re doing. But try to make it so that you don’t disclose any information about your personal life. This includes your phone number, address, family, and sometimes, even your name. We’d even recommend using a burner Instagram account for this. For all intents and purposes, these people on Instagram should be nothing more than online pen-pals.
Stop talking immediately if you ever feel like anyone on the internet is trying to manipulate or coerce you into something inappropriate or anything you don’t want to do. Go to your parents, guardians, or any authority figure and tell them everything.
If you’re scared of getting in trouble, think about how much trouble you’ll be in if you let this continue.
In general, it’s best to keep away from strangers offline and online. After all, in college, at your workplace, and for the rest of your life, all you have to do is talk to strangers, right?
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not you can remove someone’s likes from your Instagram photo. Read on to learn all about it!
Is it Possible to Remove Someone’s Likes on Your Instagram Photo?
If you’ve had a bit of a falling out with someone, we understand that you want to remove their likes from your Instagram posts. Who wants their help, right?
Well, while we’d love to help, there is no option on Instagram that specifically allows you to do something like that. That being said, there is something you can do that can remove not only one like but all of their engagement from your Instagram profile. Yes, we’re talking about blocking them.
Why would you need someone that you’ve had a falling out with on your Instagram profile anyway, are we right? All you need to do is block this person, and you won’t have to see them on Instagram. Moreover, even when you unblock them for some reason, their likes won’t reappear. They’ll have to do it all over again.
Here’s How to Block Someone on Instagram
If blocking them seems to be the perfect solution to your problem, we’re happy for you. Here’s how you can block a user on Instagram:
Step 1: Launch the Instagram app on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen that you see is your Home feed. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see five different icons. Tap on the magnifying glass icon, which will take you to the Explore page.
Step 3: You’ll see a search bar at the top of the screen. Tap on it and enter the username of the person you wish to block.
Step 4: Tap on their profile from the search results. At the top right corner, locate a three-dots icon. Tap on it, and a pop-up menu will appear with several options.
Step 5: Tap on Block.
You have two options: either to block this account or to block this person, their other accounts, and any new accounts they might create.
Step 6: Tap on the option of your choice, and you’re good to go.
