Facebook has activated a new feature for Instagram users. Covering users over the age of 18, the function will now allow automatic checking of sensitive content on the platform.

In the announcement made by the social network, which defines sensitive content as posts that do not violate Instagram Community Guidelines, but have the potential to upset some people, it was stated that these content may be obscene or violent. Accordingly, users will be able to set the ‘Sensitive Content Control’ to more or less see certain types of sensitive content.

How is it set?

To view your Sensitive Content Control, go to your profile, tap the “Settings” menu in the upper right corner, tap “Account”, then tap Sensitive Content Control.

Users are offered 3 options in this area. Of these, in the ‘Allow’ option, more photos and videos will be visible, which may be offensive or offensive. In the “Border” (default) option, some photos and videos will be visible, which may be offensive or offensive. ‘Limit even more’ will show fewer photos and videos that could be offensive or offensive. Users will be able to change these preferences on Instagram at any time.

Users under the age of 18 will not be able to grant permission

The ‘Allow’ option from these options will not be available for Instagram users under the age of 18. In other words, Instagram users under the age of 18 will not be able to choose to view more photos and videos that may be offensive or offensive.
