How do you protect your child’s photo privacy on Instagram?
If your child hasn’t manually set their Instagram account to “Private”, all their photos are publicly available for anyone to view. If you care about who sees your child’s photos, especially those that post location, or provide identifying information such as the school they attend, or athletic team they’re on – then make sure your child’s account is set up to protect their privacy.
1. Open the Instagram mobile app and click on the Profile icon on the bottom navigation bar
Tap “Edit your Profile”
Scroll down to the “Photos Are Private” on/off switch and flip the toggle “On”.
*Note: Making your profile private doesn’t protect you 100%. If your child’s friends profiles are “Public”, they can take screenshots of your photos and repost for public viewing.
