The popular photo-sharing app, Instagram, has now rolled out a new update wherein it will put a screen (blur) over the sensitive content of your Instagram feed. Although these posts don’t violate any guidelines but this would mean that someone has reported that particular post after which the review team of Instagram has confirmed it to be sensitive. The Facebook-owned app says in a blog post that – “This change means you are less likely to have surprising or unwanted experiences in the app.” Also, to view these posts, simply tap to reveal the photo or video.
Apart from this, Instagram has also brought in the two-factor authentication security feature which it rolled out for some select users last year in February 2016. The feature is somewhat similar to WhatsApp’s two-step verification where the app will simply ask you to enter the pre-set code everytime you log in to Instagram.
The blog post from Instagram reads – “This tool adds an extra layer of security to your Instagram account by requiring a code every time you log in. Tap the gear icon on your profile and choose Two-Factor Authentication to turn it on.”
Meanwhile, Instagram recently introduced another feature which now makes users save their live stream footage after they are done with the streaming.
