In Instagram there is a lot of content to see and to know. Thanks to the Explore tab, you will have at your fingertips all the content of your interest that is uploaded to the application, but sometimes things that are not to your liking will appear. This can happen as long as you do not configure the content section, a feature that now has an extra option to choose from.
New limitations when using Instagram
Younger users have limited or controlled access to the applications on their device thanks to parental controls. However, for older adults this is not an option and each one is responsible for what they see and appear in the apps they use. In the case of Instagram it is a palpable reality, since the Explore tab is a constant source of content for users.
And this is where Facebook wants to put more tools for its customers with new content display options. This new feature helps you further filter all the images and videos that enter through this part of the application. As you know, the app has a function that prevents you from seeing unpleasant images in the profiles you visit, but now you can better restrict what appears in Explore.
As read in the signature blog you have absolute control now of what may appear to you. “You can leave everything as is, if you agree with the current experience, or you can adjust the sensitive content control to see more or less content of this type.” Everything is done quickly from the path of Settings> Account> Sensitive content control.
Thinking of the young
One of the curiosities of this new feature that expands on Instagram with these options to view sensitive content it has to do with the age of its users. And it is that the firm clarifies that minors have more restrictions than those who have already reached 18 years of age or older.
It turns out that the new option will not leave the allow tab for minors, so they will always be protected when viewing content that should not appear to them. Of course, parental protection functions continue to be the order of the day, so if you are a parent you will have control of what your children can see if they are users of the app.
