The Facebook-owned photo-sharing application with one billion active users, as of January 2021, is now working on a new feature to help its users feel safe while browsing the application. The most recent update in the app was “reels” the TikTok rival one month back. In the upcoming update, Instagram users will be able to block certain keywords in the comments or direct messages.

App researcher, Alessandro Paluzzi shared a screenshot of the privacy section where the content control option is added, where specific keywords particularly slang and abusive words can be added and all the messages containing the added words will be blocked upon reaching the user.
