Instagram Introduces ‘Caption Warning’ to Prevent Online Harassment

24

New Delhi: Facebook-owned Instagram has now extended its anti-bullying tool to hurtful captions on photos and videos.

Now, if someone bullies you on an Instagram caption on your photos or videos, it will immediately be flagged with a notification: “This caption looks similar to others that have been reported”. The user will be given the option to revise the message or share it anyway.

“You can restrict someone by swiping left on a comment, through the Privacy tab in Settings, or directly on the profile of the account you intend to restrict. “Once Restrict is enabled, comments on your posts from a person you have restricted will only be visible to that person,” said the company.
