Instagram’s Quiet Mode lets users temporarily turn off notifications and notify their contacts that they’re unavailable.

When Quiet Mode is activated, “In Quiet Mode” will be added to the user’s profile and other users will receive an auto-reply when they send the user a direct message. When a user first activates the Quiet Mode feature, they’ll be able to tell Instagram when to turn the feature on and off each day. Quiet Mode can be activated for up to 12 hours each day.

Our guide will show you how to turn on Quiet Mode in the Instagram mobile application.
