How to Limit Comments on Instagram Posts to Avoid Spamming and Bullying

Instagram is no safe place if you do not want to see any harassment or bullying. If your public profile is open for everyone to see, anybody can comment on your posts that may be arrogant or relevant. If you want to avoid such spammers or cyberbullies from your Instagram posts, you should limit comments on your Instagram posts.

Let’s see how we can limit comments on Instagram posts and approve them manually.
