Instagram is now launching a “Your Activity” tab that enables users to see and handle their activity on the app. The firm began testing the feature late last year and is now launching out to all users worldwide. The new Your Activity tab enables users to bulk delete their content and interactions. This includes posts, stories, reels, comments, likes, story sticker reactions, and more.
Instagram’s New Your Activity Tab Manages User Activity on the App
Users will also be able to sort and filter their content and exchanges by date and search for past comments, likes, and stories replies from specific date ranges, all within the new display. You can also find content that you’ve recently deleted or archived, check out your search history, see the links you’ve visited and the amount of time you’ve spent on the platform. To access the new Your Activity tab, you need to go to your profile and tap the menu in the upper right corner and then select “Your activity.”
Instagram is Also Rolling Out Security Checkup Feature for More Secure Accounts
Furthermore, Meta-owned, Instagram is also launching its “Security checkup” feature to everyone globally. The company began testing the feature last summer for people whose accounts may have been hacked. Security Checkup guides users through the steps needed to secure their accounts. You can check login activity, review profile information, confirm the accounts that share login information and also update your account recovery information, such as a phone number or email address. Users can complete their security checkup by going into your settings.
The firm further disclosed that it’s testing a way for users to ask their friends to confirm their identities in order to regain access to their accounts. The feature works by first entering a previous password that you’ve used to access your account. Then, you’ll need to choose two friends on Instagram who can confirm your identity. When you send a request for help, the users will need to respond within 24 hours. If both of the friends confirm your identity within 24 hours, you’ll be able to create a new password.
