Insta-savvy—take control of your app permissions

We all love connecting our favorite apps to make life easier. Maybe you use a service to print your Instagram pics, or another to share them to other platforms. But here’s the thing: when you connect apps, you give them access to your information.

Think of it like lending a friend your keys – it’s convenient, but you want to make sure they only access what they need. That’s where app permissions come in!

Here’s how to manage app permissions on Instagram:

  1. Open the Instagram app and tap your profile picture in the bottom right corner.
  2. Tap the three horizontal lines in the top right corner, then select “Settings.”
  3. Scroll down and tap “Security.”
  4. Under “Apps and Websites,” you’ll see a list of all the services connected to your Instagram account.

Now’s the fun part! You can review each connection and decide if you still want to grant access. If not, simply tap on the service and toggle off the permission you want to revoke.

Taking control of your app permissions is a simple but powerful way to protect your privacy on Instagram. So go forth and connect responsibly!
