Simply put, we rarely take risks when it comes to our online avatars and the same can be said about our Instagram search history as well.

Now, if you're only using your phone, there isn't much difference. But if sometimes, you have to give it to your colleagues, your  search patterns can reveal a  lot about you. And sometimes, search suggestions can be a bit embarrassing. Yes, and that includes your Instagram searches too. Sometimes search patterns can be a bit embarrassing.

From now on, whenever you need to  add an Instagram image   to a collection, just tap the Bookmark icon and choose Save to collection. 

Select the Collection and go. See, simple.  I consider this feature to be particularly useful when I have to refer to a particular image later.

Nobody asked anything even remotely close to this. Flat out useless answer that holds no relevance to the question. Extremely annoying and childish
