Block Or Restrict Profiles On Instagram

If your problem is with specific users, it might be better to simply block or restrict them. When blocking an account, she can’t find her Instagram profile, let alone view it.

For those who want to be less radical, there is the alternative of restricted accounts. In short, a restricted account can see what you post but cannot interact with the posts.
