1. How to turn Instagram notifications on and off for a specific user

Don't you want to miss an Instagram post from your favorite users again? Don't worry, as you can receive a notification every time a specific user posts a new photo or video. All you have to do is activate the notifications for each user individually.

To activate notifications for a specific user, you must visit the user's profile and open one of their posts. Next, click on the ellipsis in the upper right corner of the publication and a menu will appear in which you must select the option "Activate publication notifications".

Do you want to disable notifications for a user? It is very easy, because you just have to follow these steps and the deactivate box will appear.

Note. If you completed these instructions and still do not receive notifications, make sure you have activated the notifications option of the Instagram app in your phone's settings. For it:

To activate notifications on an iPhone / iPad. Go to "Settings" and then to "Notifications". Select "Instagram" and then activate the "Allow notifications" option.

To activate notifications on Android. Go to 'Settings', scroll down, select 'Applications' and then 'Instagram'. Select the option to turn on notifications.

2. How to see your "likes" on Instagram

Have you ever wanted to see all the posts you liked in one place? You can do it! You just have to go to your profile and click on the "Settings" button. Once you access the "Account" options, select "Posts you liked".

How to remove a "like" on Instagram? To remove a "like" from any post you liked, just go to that post and uncheck the heart symbol below the image. The user will not receive any notification when you remove a "like" from their post.

3. How to use more than one account on Instagram

To add additional accounts to your application, you just have to enter your profile and click on your name, in the upper left. There you will see the "Add account" button, which will take you to a new login.

You can always change from one profile to another in the same option, so you will no longer have complications if you manage more than one account.
