Instagram Profile: The best setting there is Private

Updated July 2021 : Here are the steps to getting it done, for iPhone and Android Phones:
Tap the profile icon in the lower right-hand corner of your screen, and then tap the menu icon in the upper right.

If you are on a Schools Parents Association,  we think you should ask School to recommend this approach to parents, teachers and kids and monitor the accounts in class.

Tap Account Privacy then tap the button next to Private Account.

Note - If it's not your whole profile you want to make private, but just a few pictures, there is the option to hide 'select photos' on your Instagram account. The option is in the photo menu. That is it, your Instagram profile is private. For kids and young teenagers we ALWAYS recommend blocking the whole account.
