To make an account private, go to the app’s settings, then privacy, and then account privacy. Next, turn on the Private Account option.
activity status disabled
Whenever you are active on the app, your activity status shows through a green dot. This shows that if you are online then you are available to reply. But if you don’t want people to DM you, you can turn off your activity status. For this, go to Settings>Privacy>Activity Status and turn off the option.
Block, restrict or report accounts
If you think that users are harassing you, you can remove them from your account. For this, you can use features like Block, Restrict, or Report account. You have to go to that user’s Instagram profile and click on the three dots on the right side. You can select an option here Block, Restrict or Report.
turn off comments
You can also turn off your comments section if you think people are commenting negatively on your pictures or videos. For this go to Settings > Privacy > Comments.
