Lately, Instagram has offered a new feature that allows users to disable commenting for a post, which means nobody will be able to comment on it, including yourself as well.
You are allowed to turn off comments either during the process of posting or later when your post is already uploaded. Additionally, comment settings cannot be used for future postings. So each time when you want to turn off comment, it is required to manually repeat the process. Besides, you can activate comments anytime if you want. Check out how to do both in this post.
Steps to disable comments before posting a new photo or video
Step 1: First off, open the Instagram app
Step 2: Next, take a photo or select an image from your Library by tapping on the Share button
Step 3: Selecting your filter settings if needed then tap on the Next button.
Step 4: Tap on the grey Advanced Settings button at the bottom of the app
Step 5: Toggle the switch next to Turn Off Commenting on.
Step 6: Tap on the Back button
Step 7: Tap on the blue Share button
After that, the comment button will disappear from your post.
Steps to disable comments for existing photos or videos
Step 1: Open the Instagram app
Step 2: Next, select a post that you want to turn off commenting
Step 3: Then, tap on the Ellipsis button at the top right of the post.
Step 4: Tap on the blue Turn Off Commenting option in the pop-up menu.
Steps to turn commenting back on a post
In case, you want to enable commenting, here is how to do it:
Step 1: First off, Open the Instagram app
Step 2: Next up, find a post of yours that you want to reactivate comments for.
Step 3: Tap on the Ellipsis button at the top right of the post.
Step 4: Finally, tap on the blue Turn On Commenting option in the pop-up menu.
Now you can see the comment button re-appears beneath the Instagram post, allowing you and your friends comment as usual.
