You can make your Instagram private through the Instagram settings, so you video or photos will only be visible to followers that you allow to follow you.

A private Instagram account can be make public in the settings at anytime. Depending on your Instagram account, there are couple of places in the settings option for the privacy option. I’ll show you both in this video.

Hey everyone. In this quick video,
I wanted to show you how you could make your Instagram account completely private
and I’ll show you a couple of different accounts,
because depending on your accounts, it’s in a couple of different places.
If it’s your first time here, I make easy-to-follow social media and tech videos five times a week, so please consider subscribing.
So let’s start here. Let’s launch Instagram and make sure you go to your profile.
So you want to see this page and on here you want to click the gear icon next to edit profile.
So click that gear icon and if you scroll down here, if your account is laid out like this,
this is how you turn it to private. So just click private and it will make it private.
You could always revert back and make it not private by just clicking the slider.
So that’ll give you a little warning that you are changing your privacy setting. Now if your account is not laid out like this,
it’s in a different place. Let me show you that. Let me just switch my accounts here.
I’ll go to a different account and here I’ll click the gear icon one more time.
And if I scroll down here, I don’t have that same option.
My account is broken up in a different category. Privacy and security and then account privacy.
I need to click that and then I’ll see the private account option.
I’ll go ahead and click that and now this account is private.
So this option is in a couple of different places depending on your account.
But that’s how you turn your Instagram account private.
And you could always change it back to public if you want to at a later time.
