Instagram has introduced a new feature that will allow users to secretly block bullies from commenting on their posts.

The new feature, lets users block comments on their posts from specific users without the user knowing. The blocked user will still see their comment on a user’s post, but it will not be visible to anyone else.

Instagram said on Twitter, Starting today, we’re rolling out a new feature that notifies people when their captions may be considered offensive, and gives them a chance to pause and reconsider their words before posting.

In another tweet Instagram said with a heart emoji that this is an extension of our current feature that flags potentially bullying comments, and another step toward creating a safer environment on Instagram.

“Online bullying is a complex issue. For years now, we have used artificial intelligence to detect bullying and other types of harmful content in comments, photos and videos. As our community grows, so does our investment in technology. This is especially crucial for teens since they are less likely to report online bullying even when they are the ones who experience it the most.” Instagram said.

Here is the details that how you can avoid the abusive or bullying comment.


Now you can report or delete an inappropriate comment.
