Instagram: Here’s How to Change Your Push Notifications Settings

Follow our guide to change the kinds of notifications you receive

The Instagram application has a variety of notifications settings, allowing you to receive notifications when users like or comment on your posts, follow your account and more. If you ever decide you receive too few or too many notifications, the app also allows you to turn certain notification types on or off. Our guide will show how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Instagram app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the profile icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear near the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Under “Settings,” tap “Push Notification Settings.”

Step 4: Scroll through the list of notification types, and tap any of the options to change your current setting (the blue checkmark will be to the right of the active setting). For instance, you can have the app only notify you of new likes when they’re from users you follow (see the image below).
