How to turn off comments on your Instagram posts


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.
