Setting up Instagram privacy is easy
Tap Account Privacy then tap the button next to Private Account.
Note - If it's not your whole profile you want to make private, but just a few pictures, there is the option to hide 'select photos' on your Instagram account. The option is in the photo menu. That is it, your Instagram profile is private. For kids and young teenagers we ALWAYS recommend blocking the whole account.
Switch on Privacy, for either the whole account or just certain photos.
That's it, your Instagram profile is private. As long as you have Private Account option is on, only the users who are currently following you, plus any new users you approve if they request to follow you, will be able to see your Instagram content.
