Keep your Instagram account safe,making it private

Instagram addresses this issue with an option that helps user to keep their account private. What it’ll do is that it will leave you in charge of the people who’ll then be allowed to follow you. But as we know, when our account is not private, practically any possible person can start following us. So, making your account private would be the best deal if you don’t wish random people to follow you and stalk your profile.

You can keep your datas saved whilst using Instagram

A good solution to these issues is the option, option of using less data that Instagram provides. For this, you’ll need to go to the options menu and then tap on Cellular Data use.Tapping on cellular data use will provide you the option that says “Use Less Data”. Tap on this option for efficient data usage.

Add hashtags post each photo uploads

Instagram does not allow us to edit what we have written in our posts like Facebook does, so instead of worrying over the hashtag that you missed, what you can do is that you can post those required hashtags in a comment below your post. They’ll work in the same way as your hashtag in the description works.

Geo-tagging in Instagram

It is rare that we forget the place where we clicked a picture, but if you have people asking you the same again and again, then what you can do is that you can geo-tag the images that you post. Geo-tagging is nothing but a way to tag the picture with the place where you clicked it.For this, whenever you share a photo, just select the option that says “Add to Photo Map”, and your image will be saved to the photo map and you and others will then be able to see the place where your picture was clicked.

Remove a tag on Instagram

Removing a tag in Instagram with ease is quite flexible now. Instagram has a solution to cope up with this issue as well, but for this, you would first need to go to the image that you are tagged in. Once you have opened the image, tap on 3 dot button symbol (symbolizing options) on the bottom right, upon clicking, you’ll see an option that says Photo Options, click on it and you’ll see further options. Now at the last stage, you’ll need to look for the option that says Remove Tag, press it to straightaway remove the tag from that photo.

Now you’ll be asked to select the images from the images provided on the screen, so that they can be added to your poster. If you don’t select any image, all the images presented to you on the page will appear on the poster.
