How can I disable replies to my Instagram stories?

How to cut a long story short 💡

When posting a story to Instagram, users are able to respond to it either with a reaction or with a message. Although you may want to receive these replies if they’re relevant to your content, but you also may not want to receive this if it’s not; so here’s what to do!

  • Head to your Instagram app
  • Click on the three lines in the top-right corner for more
  • Select Settings
  • Click on Privacy
  • Select Story
  • Scroll down to the Replying section
  • Take a look at the three options you can limit replying to: Everyone, People you follow or Off

Make your selection, and you’re done!
