Today, Meta announced that Instagram will have a new Sensitive Content Control function. As most of you should know, there are some “not-safe-for-work” images floating around on Instagram. With this, Sensitive Content Control has only two options for teens: “Standard” and “Less.”
Teenagers signing up for Instagram who is under 16 years old will automatically be defaulted to “Less”, whereas existing teens will receive a prompt message to choose the “Less” experience. Applying the “Less” option will restrict teens to come across potentially sensitive content or accounts in Search, Explore, Hashtag Pages, Reels, Feed Recommendations and Suggested Accounts.
On top of that, Meta is also updating its safety and privacy settings for Instagram. Teens now have the option to adjust their settings such as who can reshare their content, who can message and contact them, and how much time is spent on the platform. It’s also noted that users who are under 18 years old won’t have access to “More”.
If you would like to view your Sensitive Content Control, you can just simply take a trip to your Profile > Settings > Account > then tap on Sensitive Content Control. In addition, there are other tools that you can look around such as Comment Control, Restrict, Block and Mute.
