Set or Remove Privacy on Instagram with LG L70
Hotelier, Crystal, Eng
Hello and thank you for watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to set your Instagram account to private, and unlock it so that it is publicly viewable on your LG L70. To begin, we should access the home screen by pressing the power button on the top right-hand side.
Swipe in any direction to unlock the phone
From the home screen, we can see the Instagram icon is already added for easy access
If the icon is not located on the home screen, we can access Instagram from the Apps folder
It is a gray box with a bunch of white squares inside of it, labeled "Apps".
We can then swipe to the left or right in the Apps menu until we've located the icon for Instagram
The icon looks like a camera. Tap that one time to open the application. We will see 5 icons across the bottom.
The house icon will bring us to the Instagram feed
The magnifying glass icon will allow us to search
The camera icon will allow us to add photos and videos
The heart icon allows us to see our favorite pictures
As well as a person icon to view our profile
We want to select that icon.
Across from our Instagram name, in the blue bar, there are 3 dots
We need to tap those for additional options.
Scroll down to the "Private Account" option
When this is activated, we will have to approve who views our photos. They will need to send a request, and we will have to say yes or no to that request. To turn this option on, we can slide over this radio button to the right. There will then be a blue background and people will have to send a request.
To remove that function and allow people to publicly view our photos and account, we can slide the button over to the left
When we do that, we get a pop up menu that says "Anyone will be able to see your photos and videos on Instagram
You will no longer need to approve followers." We can select "OK".
Now we can see that the "Private Account" option is turned off because it is gray
Anyone is able to view our photos.
When we're happy with those changes, we can go back by tapping the white arrow in the top left-hand corner
Press the bottom center button to return to the home screen
This concludes this presentation on how to set your Instagram as private, as well on how to reopen it so that it is publicly viewable on your LG L70
