Manage your Instagram Privacy Setting

Now that we understand what Privacy settings are and what we can manage, we are going to discuss how to make your Instagram page private. This means that only your Instagram friends will be able to view your activity such as posts, photos, and content that you share on your page. It is also important to note that you can always edit your settings later on if you change your mind.
