Instagram new feature let you filter and hide comments you don’t want to see on your posts
Instagram unveiled a new feature known as “comment keyword filtering”. This new feature is available for all users. According to Instagram, This new feature will enable you to automatically hide comments that you don’t want to see on your posts. It will let you create a preset list of potentially offensive words/keywords or spam comments you don’t want to see on your post, like: “buy followers and likes”and its will automatically hide those words from your post.
To enable this feature, you need to follow the below steps:
- Go to your profile and tap (iOS) or (Android) in the top-right.
- Tap Comments.
- Tap next to Hide Inappropriate Comments to filter comments using a default list of keywords, or enter custom keywords below Custom Keywords. Custom keywords can include any words, phrases, numbers or emojis you’d like to filter out, separated by commas.
- Tap Done.
It will be good for you to know that this new feature “default and custom keyword filtering” are currently not available in all languages:
The default list of keywords is currently only in English, and contains
the most common inappropriate and offensive words on Instagram,
Custom Keywords: Currently, custom keyword filtering doesn’t support languages without spaces (ex: Chinese, Japanese, Thai).
they contain keywords you’ve filtered out. Instead, they’re merely
hidden from public view: if you later disable filtering, or the specific
keyword in question, the comments will be visible again. And when
you turn on comment filtering, it’s applied to both new and existing
comments on your posts. when you turn off comment filtering, filtered
comments on your posts will be restored.
