Instagram is creating a “Your activity” feature that will allow users to view and manage their app activity. The feature was first tested late last year and is now being rolled out to all users globally. Users can now delete their material and conversations in masse using the new tab. Posts, stories, reels, comments, likes, story sticker reactions, and more are all included. Within the new display, users will be able to sort and filter their content and interactions by date, as well as search for past comments, likes, and story responses from specified date ranges.
You can also examine your search history, see the links you’ve visited, and the amount of time you’ve spent on the platform, as well as find anything you’ve recently deleted or archived. To get to the new tab, go to your profile, tap the menu in the upper right corner, and then choose “Your activity.” Instagram’s “Security Checkup” tool is now available to everyone in the world. Last summer, the business began testing the function for customers whose accounts had been hacked. Users can utilize Security Checkup to walk them through the steps to secure their accounts.
You can monitor login activity, review profile information, confirm the accounts with which you share login information, and change your account recovery information, such as your phone number or email address. By going into your settings, you can finish your security checkup. Users can also ask their friends to validate their identities in order to restore access to their accounts, according to the business. To utilize the function, you must first input a previous password that you’ve used to log in to your account. Then you’ll need to identify two Instagram buddies who can verify your identification. When you submit a request for assistance, the users must react within 24 hours.
You’ll be allowed to create a new password if both of your friends validate your identification within 24 hours. If they don’t, you’ll have a second chance to choose two new mates. Instagram promises to have more information on this feature soon. Aside from these new capabilities, Instagram just debuted a new profile banner that shows a user’s forthcoming livestreams. In the United States, the firm has begun an early test of creator subscriptions. Only a few producers can now charge their fans for access to exclusive Instagram Live broadcasts and Stories. For access to their exclusive content, creators can set their own pricing.
Paid subscribers will be distinguished from unpaid users in the sea of comments by a distinctive badge. Instagram isn’t the only social media network experimenting with subscriptions; TikTok has also stated that paid subscriptions are being tested.
