Earlier this month, Instagram added new machine learning algorithms that allow users to hide offensive content. Now this platform has announced a new tool to combat trolls and haters. Something almost reminiscent of the work of headless radar. But let's look at how Instagram will end abusive messages.
Instagram will put an end to abusive messages once and for all!
However, the main target of the new system is direct messages that contain offensive words, phrases or emojis. It is true that this is not exactly easy to do, since this social network does not read the messages. But they must have somehow managed to get this to work.
Thus, with the new tool, offensive messages will be blocked automatically, before users' boxes arrive. The idea is to focus initially on requests for sending messages. All because it is at this time that we receive more messages from strangers.
However, Instagram will also give users more flexibility in blocking by allowing the introduction of personalized lists with words they want to block right away. So all DMs that contain these words go to a separate hidden folder. Whoever wants to access them will be able to continue to do so. However, the offensive words will remain hidden until you want to unlock them.
There is also a new system that prevents blocked users from creating new accounts in order to continue abuses. The new function is already being made available and should reach everyone in the coming weeks.
It is undoubtedly good news to be more relaxed on Instagram. However, security starts with the steps we take.
with the amount of Instagram account thefts that are occurring, it is even necessary to protect yourself now. That said, I will explain how you can activate the two-factor authentication. It's a relatively simple thing to do and it can help you a lot for anyone to log in or steal your Instagram account.
Instagram: do this now so no one can log into your account!
First open Instagram and click on the bottom right corner of your profile picture.
Then use the hamburger menu in the upper right corner to access more options.
Then choose the settings option.
Then click on the security option.
You will now have to choose the two-factor authentication option.
There in the new window click on start.
Now you must choose the security method. On the one hand, you can use an authentication app like Google Authenticator. It is the recommended method. Incidentally it will be the app indicated if you activate it. If you go this way you will reach a screen where it says get your code in Google Authenticator. There you should click on next.
Then the Authenticator will ask you if you want to add the token with the name x. Then just enter the six-digit Authenticator code and that's it.
However the other method is via text message. Maybe it’s the simplest if you don’t want to be installing additional apps. When you activate this function, you will have to enter the code that was sent by SMS to your device. After pasting it in the app you will have already activated this system.
As you can see, it's easy to enable two-factor authentication for Instagram. From now on, to access your account, you would have to steal your smartphone.
