How To Articles

Do you desire to have greater authority over your Instagram group? Perhaps you’re weary of others admitting new members without your consent, or you just want the ultimate decision on who joins. Well, here’s some exciting news for you! In this piece, I will demonstrate precisely how to restrict adding to an Instagram group.

Step 1: Accessing your Instagram settings

To begin, open the Instagram app on your phone and navigate to your profile page. Look for the three horizontal lines in the top-right corner and tap on them. This will open the side menu. Scroll down until you find the “Settings” option and tap on it.

Step 2: Privacy settings

Once you’re in the Settings menu, look for the “Privacy” option and tap on it. This will take you to a new page where you can manage your privacy settings.

Step 3: Controlling group invites

On the Privacy page, scroll down until you find the “Groups” section. Tap on it to access the settings related to your Instagram groups.

Step 4: Adjusting group invite settings

Now that you’re in the Groups settings, you’ll see an option called “Allow Others to Add You to Groups”. By default, this option is set to “Everyone”. Tap on it to change the settings.

In the popup that appears, you’ll have three options to choose from:

  1. Everyone: This option allows anyone on Instagram to add you to groups without your permission.
  2. People You Follow: With this option selected, only people you follow will be able to add you to groups.
  3. Off: This option completely blocks anyone from adding you to groups, regardless of whether you follow them or not.

Choose the option that suits you best and tap on it. Your selection will be automatically saved.


And that’s it! By following these simple steps, you can now block adding to a group on Instagram. Take control of your groups and ensure that only the right people are invited. Enjoy a more secure and personalized group experience on Instagram!
