Instagram has introduced a set of new rules for new teens who join the platform, as well as those who are already on it. From now on, new people under 16 will automatically see as little as possible sensitive content as it will become the default setting. At the same time, the teens already on Instagram will get prompts to review their settings and set the Sensitive Content Control to the strictest option.
But as always, the “care for teens” comes with a catch. Although they will be forced or prompted to filter out sensitive content to the max – they’ll still be allowed to change from the default setting.
