Instagram is the social network par excellence. With more than 1 billion active users, it is the most popular application and we all use it every day. Of course, it has some secrets that are not so well known, even for the most addicted to this application.
These are secret Instagram tricks that will allow you to get the most out of it. Let’s see how we can follow hashtags, how to improve the security of our account, manage more than one account and, of course, how we can save data.
You can follow hashtags on Instagram
Normally, we follow people and users and just search for hashtags when appropriate. However, what few people know is that they also we can follow a particular hashtag, so that it appears to us as if it were one more follower.
We simply look for the particular hashtag, in this case merca2 and we continue. Now we will get everything that is published with it, both in the stories and in the publications that appear, as long as the person who puts it is a public account.
Two-step authentication will protect you
On one occasion, someone stole an Instagram account from me. Studied computing and I am careful with passwords, never revealing anything. However, it was useless and the account was hacked, changing the email and having to create a new one as it becomes useless.
From that day on, I activated two-step verification in all my accounts. It can be easily activated in configuration, security and authentication in two steps. In this way, every time you log into a new device, you will have to enter a code that will arrive by SMS. This will mean that even if your password is revealed, no one will be able to enter without the code. In addition, an authentication application can also be used.
Manage all your Instagram accounts on one phone
For those of us who have several web projects, we have several accounts on this social network. In some applications like WhastApp we can only have an account on the device, but with this social network we can add several.
If you click on the date next to your profile name, you can see how it puts the option of add Account. In this way, you can log in to all your accounts and not have to leave when you want to manage. To change from one to the other, just click on that kind of arrow again and choose the account you want.
If you have an account on this social network, it is likely that you also have one on Facebook. Many times, we have followers on both networks and we want to show everyone what we do, but it is cumbersome uploading the same story in both places.
Luckily, if you click on linked accounts in settings, account, you can link your account Facebook to that of Instagram, in addition to others like Twitter. This will allow you to synchronize them, that is, all the stories you put on Instagram will also be automatically seen on Facebook.
Instagram allows you to control comments
If you have a professional account, you can filter and control comments they do to you. This is very useful if you have an open public profile and receive a lot of negative comments or threats.
This allows you to remove all comments from the posts or filter them. They can be automatically filtered by offensive words and more denounced or also choose the ones we want. In this way, you can avoid certain comments on your wall.
How to save data
One of the biggest complaints with the Instagram application is the massive consumption of data it makes. Automatically upload videos and photos with mobile data, something that causes spend all the gigabytes of your rate in record time.
Of course, there is a way to avoid this. If you go to settings, account and mobile data usage, you can activate a data saving mode. With this savings, only the videos when you go through them, instead of loading several automatically. I tried it and the truth is that it works, because I spent half the data and almost did not notice the difference.
Switch to professional Instagram account
The professional account of this social network is the one used by celebrities and influencers. Of course, if you have a small website or a company, you can also use it, as it is very useful. In addition, to allow you to filter comments, it shows you statistics and profile visits, as Tuenti did in its day.
In addition, this type of account has some advantages, such as a simplified messaging system, a better system to make promotions to reach more people and much more flexible profile control. The best thing is that anyone can do it, although some functions such as putting links swipe up in stories they are only unlocked with many followers.
Many times, we like a publication, but we end up losing track over time. Luckily, there is a way to avoid this, even if your account is completely normal. You just have to give adjustments, account and then the section that says posts you liked.
There, he will give you a list of posts you liked. It will do so since the beginning of time, that is, if you click on the “+” icon, you can keep going down until you find those lost publications that you couldn’t find for anything in the world.
Instagram account details
If you enter the security section in settings and then click on “Access data”, you can access interesting data. For example, you will be able to see all the emails that the account had, the privacy changes, the email addresses, the linked numbers and the names of previous users.
All this will be useful for control security and see if something has changed or if you could have been hacked. In addition, you can download all these data, which will be sent directly to the email if you click on the appropriate option.
