How to enable Parental Supervision on Instagram


Instagram has become a popular social media platform for people of all ages. It has become a platform where people can express their creativity, share their moments and connect with friends.

But what if your child is using Instagram? You might be worried that they may post something inappropriate or inappropriate content on Instagram.

This is where parental supervision comes in handy. With parental supervision enabled, you can block access to certain features and apps on your child’s phone or tablet. This will prevent them from posting anything inappropriate or embarrassing online.

Set up Parental Supervision on Instagram

Before getting started, make sure that both the teen and the parent are using the updated Instagram app. It is always better to use the latest version of the app so the feature works properly.

[Note: Also, your child or teen must be between the age of 13 to 17 in order to enable this feature.]

Step 1: Open Instagram on your smartphone.

Step 2: Tap on your profile picture in the bottom right corner.

Step 3: Tap on the Hamburger icon in the upper right corner.

Step 4: Tap on the Supervision button.

Step 5: Now, tap on Create Invitation.

Step 6: Once you follow Step 6, you need to again tap on Create Invitation and send the invitation link to your teen via any third-party apps like WhatsApp. Only one person can supervise an account.

Step 7: After you send the link and your teen accepts it, you can start supervising your teen’s account.

It is worth noting that the feature is only for teens, which means between the age of 13 to 17. In addition to this, do keep in mind that supervision doesn’t mean that your parents or the person supervising will be able to see your search or messaging activity.

Parents or the one supervising your account will only be able to see the time you send on Instagram, your settings, blocked accounts, new followers, etc.

Instagram does drop a message in its settings for this feature that says, “Your Teen owns their account. Only they can do things such as delete their account or change their password.”
