Instagram has announced that it will set all under 16’s account to private by default.

This means that only approved followers can see posts and “like” or comment.

Instagram data shows that only one in five opted for a public account when the private setting was the default, it said.

Existing account holders, who are under 16 will would be sent a notification “highlighting the benefits” of switching to private.

And Instagram has recently come under criticism because failing to remove harmful content and using children’s data for target adverts.

In response, it has developed a range of child-protection measures.

In March, it announced older users would be able to message teenagers who already followed them only.
