With the arrival of social networks and the ease of connecting to the internet, a large part of the planet began to communicate through these media. A simple way to talk to people who are on the other side of the world or around the corner, in a fast, simple and free way. One of the most widely used social networking applications is Instagram . Thanks to the incorporation of new functions, more and more users join this platform and interact with their followers on a daily basis..
In addition to being able to upload photos and videos, 24-hour stories is another of the App's strengths. These stories have been so successful because the possibilities of filters, touch-ups and other news have been increasing over time. But not everything is "public" but also offers us the possibility of exchanging direct messages with other users. The problem is that when we write these types of messages appear on the screen of our phone. We may not like this, since anyone who has access to see the screen of our mobile, you can see the content of these messages .
One of the options offered by Instagram is to silence the messages of a contact so that they do not appear on the mobile screen, or directly remove the notifications of the messages. In the event that we want to silence the messages of a particular follower for some reason or all notifications of the messages that reach Instagram, you must follow the steps detailed below..
